PONY CARE DAYS

This gives children the experience of looking after a pony for the day.

During the morning the children will learn stable management, including learning how to groom and tack up their named pony. Children will then ride their pony in a fun activity, for example gymkhana games. After lunch the children will take part in more stable management which may include, mucking out, bathing, tack cleaning etc.


PONY CARE WEEK

Pony Care Week runs from a Monday to Friday and offers children a full course in stable management including dressage, handy pony, lunging, plaiting, grooming and bandaging. Riders are given a named pony/horse to look after for the week and will ride the pony/horse each day. Show jumping competitions are part of this fun filled week. At the end of the week rosettes & trophies are given out for best turned out ponies and to winners of the show jumping.
