Own a Pony Day

Get hands-on experience in all aspects of horse care

Price: £50 per child

Age: 8 years and above

Timings: Friday 29 October - 14:00 - 17:00

Own a Pony sessions give your children the chance to really experience what it's like owning a pony. Children will have fun, learn and gain confidence being around ponies on these two hour sessions. 

They'll receive qualified instruction throughout whilst getting hands-on experience in aspects of horse-care such as grooming, handling and putting on saddles and bridles. Once their ponies are ready, the children will have a half-hour ride.

Spaces are limited therefore booking in advance is advised to avoid disappointment.

To book your space, please call our reception.

Please note this is a school holiday activity only.

Additional information
  • Parents or guardians must remain on the premises for the duration of the activity

  • Sessions must be pre-booked and paid for in advance.

  • Clothing requirements: All children need to be suitably dressed for riding. They'll need to wear strong closed toe shoes with a small heel. Trainers and high heels may not be worn for safety reasons. They should wear loose fitting or stretchy trousers; jeans tend to rub. No jewellery should be worn, and long hair should be tied back into a low ponytail so that it doesn’t prevent a hard hat from fitting correctly.

  • Hats are supplied by the Lee Valley Riding Centre at no extra cost – all riders must wear one.

  • The Lee Valley Riding Centre has a weight limit of 13 stone which is strictly adhered to at all times.

  • Riding at any level has an inherent risk and all horses may react unpredictably on occasions

  • You must tell us if your child has any physical impairments, learning difficulties or medical
    conditions before booking
