Pony Pals

Pony Goodness, Fun & Friendship

July Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th   9am - 1pm


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.
The highest pony is 13.2hh we concentrate on keeping pony heights to a minimum so not to over-horse your child.


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 an Empathetic Balanced Rider, nurturing children while they are 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.
 
Professional Riding Instruction

 

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. 

 

 

 "I like all the little tips you give us Kathryn.  It helps us to be effective riders and your ponies listen to us.  It is so different from other places we have ridden, where you are told to get on and go. Your ponies have nice soft mouths too and are much easier to stop."
