Adopt A Pony
Each rider has their own horse/pony to ride and care for on their holiday. A great chance to find out what it’s like to have your own!
Starters to advanced riders welcome (children need to have reached a level where they are off the lead rein in walk & trot)
Stay for 1 week or more.
Over 50 school horses and ponies suitable for all ages and abilities.
Small riding groups, determined by ability.
Each Friday is Show day.
Everyone gets a chance to win rosettes in tack & turnout, a musical ride or dressage, show-jumping / cross country (weather dependent) or gymkhana games.
Friends and family are invited to watch the fun. Although competition day starts at 10 am, (with dressage, tack and turnout and sometimes a round of jumping), parents are asked to join us from 2pm onwards when there will be a demonstration in the form of drill rides and / or a jumping session, where the children can show their parents how much they have learnt during their stay with us.
A prize giving and barbecue (weather permitting) concludes the day (finishes around 6pm).
Our young guests stay in the cosy cabins. Each cabin is set out dormitory style with bunk beds. The cabin supervisor sleeps in an adjoining room. Meals are taken in our Nosebag restaurant. Hot, cold and vegetarian menus are available.
Always foremost in our minds.
24 hour supervision.
