Hero is a retired polo pony who came to us in 2016. Apparently, he was such a superstar in his former career that his reputation goes up and down the coast. He retired from his polo playing days and came to us. He is used as both a therapeutic riding partner as well as an EFL (equine facilitated learning) team partner. His riders are limited to little kiddos, as he has some back issues that require restricted weight limits.
