Own a Pony Day/Half Day

The chance for your child to look after, ride and groom their favourite pony!  These days are always very popular with our younger riders and provide a great introduction to the hard work – and fun – of having a pony of their own. 
Own-a-Pony days run Tuesday to Friday – call for more information on 020 8546 3616.

Pony birthday party

We can help plan the perfect party for pony-mad kids. Parties typically run for two hours and include a fun ride out after which the kids are taught how to look after their pony.

Parents are also welcome to bring a cake and presents for the kids to open at the party. Contact the yard to discuss ideas and costs.

Other options for kids

Pony Gymkhana – Lots of fun – races, games and prizes!

Pony rides – Start riding with a fun, safe ride on one of our ponies

Ride & Groom – Learn about caring for a special pony, then take them for a ride
