These are our most popular children’s courses, and they always book up fast, so get in quickly to avoid disappointment! Pony Week Courses are open to children aged five to 12 and take place from 10am to 3pm every Tuesday through Friday during all school half terms and holidays.
We also now offer single days as well. Please see dates below.
What happens in a Pony Week Course?
Children are split into small groups according to age, friendship groups and riding ability. Each day includes two rides, as well as stable management lessons such as grooming and mucking out. Friday of every week is competition day, with themed competitions in the morning and afternoon. Every child leaves with a rosette as a reminder of their wonderful week with the ponies! We make the courses great fun, and we ensure that everyone has a fantastic time.
These are perfect for your daughter or son to get actively involved in all aspects of horsemanship and equine care.

Intermediate Pony Week
The next natural step following our standard Pony Week, this course is open to children aged 9-12 years and is great for those really wanting to advance their current riding skills.
With more focus on dressage and showjumping, this course really pushes our younger riders to that next level.
Course cost: £350
Taking place from 10am-3pm every Tuesday through to Friday on select dates.
Advanced Pony Week
For children aged 10+ who are able to walk, trot, canter and jump a small course, our Advanced Pony Week is a fantastic way for them to develop their riding skills and try a wide range of riding disciplines over the course of the week.
This includes: dressage, showjumping, arena-based cross country and on one of the days a hack out in Richmond Park. On our Advanced Pony Week, children are also allocated the same pony for the duration.
Course cost: £400
Taking place from 9am-3pm every Tuesday through to Friday on select dates.
