Four-legged Fun

Pony rides

There’s something magically memorable about having a pony ride. Certainly, a lead-rein walk with one of our gentle ponies, Little Joe, Nimbus, Tommy or Winnie, is a holiday highlight for many of our young guests aged ten and under. Even babies can have a sit in the saddle, with you close by their side. Children can also give their favourite pony a brush before having a ride.

Pony rides take place on Monday and Wednesday mornings.

For Under ten's

Pony Poppets

For pony-mad little ones, aged ten and under, our Pony Poppets sessions are a must. Run by our resident equine expert, Liz, these sessions are for one family at a time and are tailored to the age of your children. Including pony care and lead-rein riding in our outdoor school, it’s the closest thing to having a pony!
