Easter Break Activities:

Join us this Easter school break for lots of fun at the stables:  We have a covered indoor arena in addition to our outdoor school, so rain won't stop play (although we are hoping for sun!)  Our Tots n PoniesPony Hour and Have-a-Go Pony Fun sessions are perfect for younger children and beginners as an introduction to ponies and horse riding.  

For children who’d like to learn more about pony care and grooming, as well as riding, our Pony Experience Days are ideal and this half term we're also holding a special Dressage Day for riders who would like to try this discipline.  We have two Pony Camps for children who want to spend a few days with us - a Senior 3 Day Pony Camp for riders aged 9 and above and a Mini 2 Day Pony Camp for our younger riders.  

We've not forgotten the adults this Easter - we have 2 Bank Holidays, so why not join us for an Equestrian Experience Day for Adults (more below) or one of our Good Friday hacks?
