Steady Eddie is our mechanical horse and is a key member of our herd and always keeps his stable nice and clean! Our riders are able to mount him by mounting block or by our sling hoist, which enables wheel chair users to mount him. Riders love to have a lesson on Eddie so that they can improve their balance, position, and have the physio benefits of the movement of the horse in a controlled and secure environment.
