Pony Play Group

Surround yourselves with

'Pony Goodness' and time in the country

Ten years ago, we decided that children aged 2-4 years needed the opportunity to have a group of their own to learn about, ride, and be with ponies on a regular basis. What a joy it has been to see how this initiative has grown.

Pony Play Group will

  • introduce your child to ponies and riding
  • help build confidence and balance
  • give children the opportunity to interact with each other & animals
  • teach your children empathy towards each other and our ponies
  • give children time in the country

We offer a caring and supportive professional environment. Our ponies are the perfect size for small children. Whether you come once or regularly on a Concession, Pony Play Group is a wonderful experience.

Lovely for parents or grandparents who crave pony contact or would like to share an experience with their child. It is a win-win for parents and children. Pony Play Group is peaceful and calming, quite unlike any Play Group!


​My Son who started Pony Play Group was only two at the time and I was unsure if he would like it. From our first visit, he showed such bravery and confidence and absolutely LOVED the ponies! It was a wonderful experience and all the effort that is put in. Love the bubble machine and the warm coffee and the friendly staff. A big thank you to you and your team!

Wonderful place adored by both my daughter and myself. We love Kathryn; we love the ponies, Bailey the Bunny and the gorgeous barn that has such lovely little touches everywhere. We never want to leave after pony playgroup!!
