THE PERFECT FAMILY OUTING
These taster sessions have been designed for children of 3 to 8 years who have none or very little previous experience, however they are great for ‘grown up children’ too – the perfect family outing! This exciting experience will last around 15 minutes a gentley led ride around the fields next to the stables.
These rides run at the end of the afternoon when the yard is less busy, so are suitable for any nervous riders. This is the ideal way to experience riding for the first time and is a good introduction for anybody new to ponies. No roads are used.
Protective headgear provided.
PARTICIPANTS TO TAKE
Wear suitable outdoor clothing & sturdy shoes with a small heel.
No previous experience required, not just for kids – adults can join in too!

We aim to use pedigree Highland ponies due to their hardy and strong nature as well as their kind temperament. We also have a Shetland/Exmoor cross pony and a Dartmoor pony to allow us to take smaller riders. We are a very friendly team, both human and equine, and have rides going out all year round (weather dependant) tailored by ability.
