Named after Walt Disney’s wife, Lilly was born at the park’s Tri-Circle-D Ranch and is the daughter of Lady and Ferdinand, the two ponies who pull Cinderella’s pumpkin carriage during the renowned Disney parades. Disney World recently announced a new equestrian member to the team, and the gorgeous white Shetland pony has already won the hearts of visitors.
All of the Disney horses reside at Tri Circle D Ranch, which has approximately 90 horses of various breeds, including Shetland horses. Arab horses, Appaloosas, Clydesdale horses, paint horses, quarter horses, and Percherons are also kept at Tri Circle D. Over 35 staff members take care of these horses to the greatest standards, assuring their happiness and health.
Guests to the park may see these horses in addition to the Disney parades, and some are available for pony rides and trail rides. Until Lilly is prepared for training, which will start in a few years, visitors can observe her in the exhibiting pasture. Visit The New Tri-Circle-D Ranch, which is the home of Heritage and Happy Horses.
