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 9:30am to 1:30pm 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. 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.

Advanced Pony Week – (By Invitation Only)
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.
