Initially, the children will learn how to handle the pony safely including tying-up and leading the pony. A typical day consists of feeding and grooming the horses and ponies, tacking up, and approximately 3 hours riding with experienced instruction and adult supervision. Children will be taught stable management and will learn to care for all the needs of the horses and ponies. The riding will be a mixture of lessons, hacks and walkabouts through the beautiful woodland and along the farm tracks.
After riding children will be able to enjoy a wide range of activities including swimming, games, films, picnics, barbecues, ball games and walks, so the day and evening are as full as you want them to be. Some of the social activities will be split by age.
Children will ride in groups of ability but this holiday caters for complete beginners who will start on the lead-rein to more experienced riders. The children will be supervised at all times during the day and evening and there will always be someone in the farmhouse to care for them. Parental consent is required for swimming, or any off-site trip.
