AKA: "The Round Fluffy Teddy Bear"
Tonka is a 7 year old 14hh Stationbred pure black gelding. Prior to being purchased by WRDA at the beginning of 2015, Tonka lived in New Plymouth where he was used for hacking. As a young pony he was also shown in-hand before being broken in.
Tonka is very curious about everything and loves to investigate. If Romeo was still at WRDA these two would make a very cute but troublesome pair!
Tonka has a very friendly nature, although he still needs occasional reminders to not overstep the boundaries. As a young pony he does like to test things out every so often. When ridden by able bodied riders Tonka is very active – he is still learning that he can be active when used in RDA as well. His pace is quite choppy which makes a good addition to the team.
