Every Monday and Wednesday morning (or just Mondays if you are here for a weekend break), it’s pony-ride time with our friendly and gentle ponies: Little Joe, Nimbus and Tommy. Little farmers aged ten and under enjoy a lead-rein walk along the farm drive and the chance to say ‘Hello!’ to their favourite animals.
For some pony-mad girls – and boys – this is the undisputed high point of their stay. Even babies can have a sit in the saddle. You’ll be involved at every stage, from helping your child adjust their riding hat and getting on their pony to supporting them as they ride along.
Pony Poppets offers informal sessions for children including pony care and lead-rein riding fun in our outdoor school. These sessions are only available to families staying at Tredethick. They are for one family at a time and are tailored to the age of your children. Pony Poppets is led by our resident equine expert, Liz. 45 minute slots (suitable for 1-2 children) cost £45, 75 minute sessions (recommended for 3 children) are £65. Please email [email protected] to book. It’s the next best thing to having your own pony!
