Christmas Pony Hour & Meet Father Christmas

Sunday 19 December:   9.30 am – 11 am  and  11 am – 12.30 pm  |  Age: 2 - 12  years  |  £50 per child

In our special Christmas Pony Hour, children will join the Ride High ponies for a Christmas pony ride and spend time on the yard with our team, learning more about how we care for the ponies and helping to groom them.   These activities will take about an hour.

Children will also meet Father Christmas during this special festive session and receive a small gift from him – he likes to visit Ride High as we've ample parking for his sleigh and plenty of hay for the reindeer!  There will also be mince pies and hot drinks available for parents and parents will be able to take photographs of their child meeting Father Christmas.

  • A maximum of 2 adults may stay with each child, but no accompanying siblings please
  • Alternatively, you can drop children off for the session and collect at the end. 
  • If you are attending with your child, please wear sensible footwear as the yard has uneven surfaces and may be muddy.
  • The session will include an hour's pony time - split between riding and grooming the ponies, as  well as a visit to Father Christmas

This activity must be pre-booked as numbers are limited and tickets will not be available on the day.
