Shetland Pony Parties

If you have a party booked with us, we will assess the new government guidelines to be announced today, 9 September 2020. We will get in touch with you to discuss options, once we know what is possible.

New minimum riding age of 4

Shetland Pony Club is proud to be one of the first riding schools in the country to be awarded the Association of British Riding Schools Certification for COVID-19 Safe Working Practices. Having risk-assessed our riding in the light of the government guidelines, we have changed the age for riding to a minimum of 4 years old, until further notice.

For children aged 2.5 – 4, we hope to be able to resume riding soon. Keep an eye on our weekly email, social media and the website here for more information.

Take care from

The Shetland Pony Club Team and all the Shetland ponies
