Easter Riding in the Bluebells at Shetland Pony Club

Own a Pony Experiences are two hours long and are delightful early riding and learning experiences for children from age 4 years old. Includes lots of riding and pony care. Followed by a rosette presentation. Each child will have their own pony and helper.

They are available from March – November by appointment only.  We get really busy so do book now.

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.
