Pony Days and Pony Parties
At Glebe Field Riding School we run Pony Days throughout the school holidays, and can organise a Pony Party especially for your child – so please give us a call on 01825 872198 to discuss your individual requirements.
Pony days are on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the school holidays. The day consists of each child owning their own pony, every child has a helper unless experienced. The ponies are brought in from the field, groomed, tacked up and then we set off for a morning ride in our surrounding wood land. The ponies are then untacked and given their lunch whilst the children have theirs. The afternoon consists of a Gymkhana with various heats to suit each child’s experience. Parents are welcome to watch and cheer, the day ends with the presentation of rosettes. Our qualified instructors and helpers are on hand to ensure that the children have plenty of fun and build up their confidence in a safe environment. These pony days are perfect for groups of children for example brownies, guides etc or for individuals to meet like minded children and learn all aspects of keeping or riding a pony, riding experience is not necessary. Our Pony days are very popular so please book well in advance.
All pony days are set up for complete beginners 4 years of age and upward to novice level, trotting without a leader.
All children have a pony and a helper with no more than 12 children per day.
After the gymkhana there will be a presentation of rosettes at 3.30pm with the children ready to leave at 4pm. Parents are welcome to watch.
Cost: Full day £50.00 (siblings £45.00 each)
