What will I learn on the Pony Care Course?

Each week we will focus on a pony care topic:

  1. Introduction to Pony Care– meet the ponies! We have 21 adorable Shetland Ponies for you to meet and learn to look after.
  2. Vet Day– check your pony is healthy and find out how to care for him when he’s not.
  3. Pony whispering– learn to think like your pony using natural horsemanship techniques.
  4. Stable and Saddle Day- Learn how to ‘tack-up’ your pony with the correct saddle and bridle.
  5. Shetland Pony Agility-  bond with your pony as you guide him through an easy and fun agility course.

We finish the course with a special prize giving. Receive an ABRS (Association of British Riding Schools) Certificate and rosette on completion of the course.
