Own a Pony Experiences

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Ranch closure from 18 March 2020

Following the latest government advice to avoid all non-essential gatherings we have decided to temporarily close The Ranch from Wednesday 18 March 2020, until further notice, to play our part in the global effort to stem the coronavirus spread. Safety is our number one priority and we wish to do everything we can to support the nation’s efforts at this difficult time.  For more information and for those with upcoming bookings, click here. (Updated 18 March 2020).

Here’s what happens on an Own a Pony Experience:

Children meet and greet the ponies with a helper and learn to brush them. Then it’s time to help tack them up and learn to lead the ponies. Next, they enjoy an easy ride in our meadows with a leader that is confidence-boosting and fun. After a break, it’s time to enjoy some pony learning such as tack cleaning or clearing up the paddock (which they love!). Own a Pony Experiences are a really special all-round pony experience and children are presented with a rosette to take home at the end.
