Own a Pony Day
Get hands-on experience in all aspects of horse care
Price: £50 per child
Age: 8 years and above
Timings: Wednesday - 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.
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
