Pony Mornings

Pony Mornings – fun for children age 4 to 10 years old

Pony Mornings are 2 hours long and specially designed as early riding experiences for children from age 4 years old. They cost £55 per child.  They are available from March – November by appointment only. We are now closed for the winter. We open on 7 March 2020 until end November – be the first to hear when bookings open by joining the waiting list.

Or give us a call on 07734 950 309.

Here’s what happens on a Pony Morning:

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 them. 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!). Pony mornings are a really special all round pony experience and children are presented with a rosette to take home at the end.
