This Pony party includes a ½ hour riding lesson and a  ½ hour stable management session where each child gets to interact with our ponies (grooming etc).We then take them to our dedicated party room where the children can enjoy a selection of catered tasty goodies!

Shetland Pony Parties

 

Designed for our younger rider!

 

A party with a difference for your child’s special day!!

 

Suzie and Fuzz Lightyear are just two of our fully registered Shetland ponies who stand only 32 and 40 inches tall at the shoulder respectively. All our Shetlands are suitable for children between the ages of 2 and 5. They are friendly and kind with small children. Riding is on a lead rein at all times, with one handler to each pony.

 

At Shetland pony parties we don’t teach children to ride, but offer the magical first experience of riding on our safe and happy ponies. The children will have every opportunity to interact with the ponies and ride as much as time and numbers allow.

 

Each child attending the party will receive a voucher for a free group riding lesson.

 

At the Party, the children can:

  • Groom the ponies with their own special brushes.
  • Comb & Plait their manes and tails
  • Paint the ponies’ hooves with special glittery varnish
  • Have lots of pony rides!
