Bay “Thelwell”, Gelding, 11hh
Cutie was born in 2007 and joined our team in 2018. What he lacks in size he makes up for in energy! Initially named after Quentin  Tarantino, but it is Fabio who he really embodies. 
Hobbies: Jogging and a nice day at the “spa”.

It takes a very special horse to become an RDA horse and we are very lucky to have our incredible team.

Our herd receive hard feed at least twice a day due to not being on pasture, and have regular visits form the farrier, vet & dentist (yes, horses have to brush their teeth too!). Their continued upkeep requires volunteers attend the Centre multiple times a day to receive & distribute feeds, ensure their health, well-being and ongoing training is continued.

The annual costs of each horse is roughly $5,000 – $6,000 each year. To find out more about these expenses, or to make a donation please visit our donations page.

“The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings you in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and freedom.”
