Trib­utes to Te­bay

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

TRIB­UTES have been paid to a ‘spe­cial’ pony who helped hun­dreds of dis­abled chil­dren in Bucks.

Te­bay was bought by Gaile Og­den and Anne Coney and joined Bank Farm Rid­ing for Dis­abled in Belling­don, which started in 1986.

After a short ill­ness, Te­bay was put down at the age of 31. He had been re­tired for four years.

Chair­man of the group Mrs Coney said: “He was the back­bone of the group and will be re­mem­bered by hun­dreds of dis­abled chil­dren whom he helped gain con­fi­dence. All the ponies here are spe­cial but this lit­tle fella touched more hearts than any.”

Te­bay was a car­riagedriv­ing pony and peo­ple may re­mem­ber him in

Te­bay his Brad­ford cart tak­ing his own­ers home after a pic­nic in the Chilterns or at pubs where he was ‘par­tial to the odd swig of bit­ter.’

Mrs Coney be­lieves his high­light was parad­ing ‘Queen Vic­to­ria’ on his cart through Great Mis­senden for a Vic­to­rian Christ­mas event.
