October Half Term Activities
Our Pony Hour and Have-a-Go Pony Fun sessions are perfect for younger riders and great as an introduction to horses and riding. We work with small groups and children can have a go at grooming, horse agility and riding, in these one and two hour sessions. Rain is not a problem as we have a fully covered school as well as our outside arena.
For children who’d like to learn more about pony care and grooming as well as riding, our Pony Experience Days are ideal, and for the ultimate half term experience, there’s a 3 Day Halloween themed Pony Camp – places are limited though, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Three Day Pony Camp with a Halloween theme...
The ultimate half-term holiday experience!
You will be immersed in the life of the equestrian centre, and get involved in feeding, grooming and caring for the ponies, whilst learning more about the individual ponies at our yard. As well as participating in fun horse agility sessions, you will be riding in the school for an hour every day, or weather permitting, exploring the local countryside around the centre on the ponies. As it’s Halloween we will be making costumes during the camp and on Friday, after your riding session, you will be grooming and decorating the ponies before taking part in a ghostly parade!
