Summer Pony Camp Days

Shetland Pony Club Summer Pony Camp Days provide fun-packed pony days for children from 5 – 10 years old. Children become friends with their very own pony for the day and go for rides in the beautiful meadows. They also learn pony care and to look after the paddocks and tack. We have special activities such as learning natural horsemanship, picnic rides to the river and mini gymkhanas. Watch the video to find out more…

Children need to bring a packed lunch and snacks and wear leggings and comfortable layers. With lots of pony-packed days of fun, you can join for all 4 days or just for a single day.
