The next best thing to having your own pony.
On a Pony Day children learn how to care for ponies under expert supervision. The emphasis is on fun and on building confidence and skills. The day includes activities such as leading and grooming the ponies, feeding and mucking out, as well as quizzes, games and pony puzzles.
Our Pony Days started in 2006 and since this time hundreds of children have attended and, as well as having lots of fun, have learned about the importance of animal welfare and how to care for animals. Pony Days take place on Thursdays during school holidays and run from 10am-3pm. Dates for Pony Days can be found in our Events Diary.
A Pony Day allows plenty of interaction with a pony one-on-one, a chance to learn about their character and really get to understand them. This is the ideal opportunity for children to learn to handle a pony, to lead them, groom them and even to muck out. The emphasis is on fun and on building confidence and skills. Our visitor centre provides a clean, warm and comfortable environment for Pony Day breaks and activities.
Parents are welcome to attend with their children, but we’ve found that most parents prefer drop their children off for the day, as this gives them a chance to make new friends, both 2 and 4 legged.
100% of the money raised on Pony Days contributes towards the upkeep of the horses and ponies.
A donation of £30 per place is required to secure a place (£25 for a Christmas Pony Day only).
