The Life of Tekoda

  In October 2015, Tekoda arrived at Rawlinshaw late one evening. He had an extremely loving home in Durham but to fulfil his potential, his mum felt he needed a new home. We hope that we are able to provide the environment for this genuine young gent to thrive. Follow this page to watch how he develops.

    I don't want Golly to feel left out, so he too has had a clip and is now rugged up too...all ready for his new little rider Tom to take him out in his semi-retirement.

    It's always important that that any new horse is introduced to the "gang" and I was especially pleased at how Golly took to his new understudy!

    As you can see...Tekoda took it all in his stride! Grass is more important - a typical Rawlinshaw horse trait!

    You have to get on well with the head of the gang and this exchange with Woody seemed to go well too.

Tekoda's Early Days 
Meeting the girls for the 1st time
Although Koda finds gateways extreemly scarry, he seemed to quite enjoy meeting the girls. It also gave him a chance to stretch his legs and have a 1st canter in an open field
