Pony Goodness, Fun & Friendship
April 27th, 2017
A fun novice program for beginner riders ages 5yrs to 10 yrs. Ideal for children who know little or nothing about ponies or a nervous rider. Riders are well supervised and receive instruction from a Professional Riding Instructor.
At our Boutique Riding Premises, we offer a beautiful quiet country environment. Our ponies, saddlery, and property are to the highest standards.
We love teaching small groups of children, so they gain the utmost knowledge and experience in the short time they are with us.
Your child will learn the importance of
- Pony & Saddlery Care
- Handling the pony from the ground (a good relationship on the ground is crucial)
- Sitting correctly to achieve a balanced position
- Important first aids to Halt, Walk, Trot
Most children will be able to 'Rise to the trot' within their first or second day.
Once the basics are established, the students will play games, learn basic pole work, go for a farm ride, etc. To practice the objectives taught in their lessons, and that develop confidence and skills.
Our focus is on achieving a Balanced Thinking Rider while developing empathy, respect, gratitude and love towards ponies. We take care in encouraging but not over facing your child, to set the children in good stead for further riding experiences.
Safety and fun is our highest priority for the children and our ponies.
The children will also take part in fun and instructional barn games, crafts and activities if time allows.
Half day 9am - 1pm $80 per day
For Boys and Girls ages 5-10 years
Limited to 10 children
Please note we require a minimum of five children booked in to go ahead. If we don't get enough children we will either refund in full at your request, transer to Private Riding Lessons or a Pony Treat at your request.
