Great taster sessions for children from age 2 ½ to around 10 years old
Starter Rides are 45 minutes long and specially designed first riding experiences for children from age 2½ years old. They cost £35 per child. They are available from March – November by appointment only and you can book for 2017 now:
Here’s what happens on a Starter Ride:
Children get to meet and greet the ponies, brush them, help to tack them up with a one to one helper and lead them. When they are really comfortable with the pony we sit them on and they have a 20 minute lead rein ride around our meadows. When they return they help to put the pony away and look after him. Starter rides are a really special and children are given a pony certificate to remember their morning by.
On Starter Rides, the children will:
- Meet the ponies and staff
- Learn safety points
- Groom the ponies
- Tack up
- Put on our riding hat
- Learn to lead their pony
- Gentle ride on the lead rein in our meadows with our staff
- Care for their pony on their return
- Drink and collect your certificate at prize giving
