The business takes its name from Sarah’s Eriskay pony, Erica (now sadly deceased). Eriskay ponies are a local Hebridean breed, taking their name from the Isle of Eriskay, near South Uist.

The horse on our logo has a more classical pedigree, being derived from a 5th century B.C. marble fragment from the Acropolis in Athens (photo here by C. Carlstead)
