What will happen during pony day experience?

​During your pony day, you will learn how to:

  • Catch a pony in the field. 

  • Groom and plait.

  • You will learn about tack and how to make up your stable. This includes making hay nets and filling up the water for the ponies; feeding, cleaning tack and working with it.

  • You will also be able to do connection work and clicker training.

  • At the end of the day, you get to muck out the stables and leave them clean and tidy.

  • You will also learn how to make beds, and how to lead ponies back in to the fields.

  • During the day you will have a ride in the riding school and also a ride up the road or bridle path.

What your child should wear and bring with them  during pony day?

Always dress according to the weather.

  • Bring along your lunch and plenty to drink. There is a sweet/pringle machine £1.00 a time too :)

  • If the weather is not kind to us warm/waterproof clothing to be worn.

  • No trainers, please!

  • Since hats are required while working with ponies, we suggest you bring your own if you have one. We do have spares, but own always fits better. 

  • Bring sun cream if it is hot and plenty of water/juice (and of course your packed lunch). 

  • Spare set of clothes to go home in (working with ponies is fun but can be wet and messy).
