Pony days are a fantastic opportunity for children to learn more about the ponies they ride and how to look after them. There's riding, grooming, and stable management. It also gives everybody a chance to socialize as a group and help each other to complete various tasks. Pony days are normally 9:30am - 2:30pm, and include a break in the middle for lunch - so don't forget to pack your lunchboxes!
Even our Olympic champions had to start somewhere so, whether you aspire to Olympic glory or you just want to have some fun and challenge yourself our Dressage Series is for you.
The championship series is open to all of our riders (young and not so young!). Rosettes to 6th Place and Series Championship Trophy. Last year there were 2 different tests to try: Preliminary and Novice.
