Jasper came to live with us, along with his mum Queenie, when he was just 6 months old. He was a very nervous foal but with lots of attention and training is now very happy here.
We broke Jasper to ride and drive here at Wimpole, he now excels at carriage rides and enjoys helping with the experience days.
Jasper is now moving on to the agricultural work and is taking it all in his stride. He is also part of our musical ride display team.
Jasper is one of our more affectionate horses, loving nothing more than a good ear scratch by those who know him well.
