These are our most popular children’s courses, and they always book up fast, so get in quickly to avoid disappointment. Pony Weeks are open to children aged 5 to 12 and take place from 10am to 3pm every Tuesday through Friday during all school half-terms and holidays.
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 a themed grooming competition such as Cowboys and Indians in the morning and a gymkhana in the afternoon. Every child leaves with rosettes and a free Stag Lodge T-Shirt 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.
Please see the Prices page for the current price for this four-day course, but remember that lunch is not included – you will need to provide a packed lunch.
Advanced Pony Week Courses – by Invitation Only
