SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAMMES USING OUR OR YOUR 4 LEGGED FRIEND
We can provide a fun, outdoor, educational activity where your young rider will learn how to prepare their pony or horse for riding, receive tuition in Natural Horsemanship techniques including how to keep themselves safer when around them on the ground as well as on their backs, have the opportunity to ride in an enclosed area and make a new best friend in the equine or human form. This will also enable participants to practice their leadership skills, build confidence in themselves and what they can do as well as gain knowledge about the responsibility of caring for an animal.
There is the chance to use a horse/pony of mine for this or take part with your own four legged friend.
These programmes are suitable for those aged from 5 years old upwards.
Half day programme consists of teaching in horse care plus a lesson in Natural Horsemanship in the arena.
Length: About 3 hours of horse/pony contact time.
Full and 2 day programme consists of teaching in horse care plus a lesson in Natural Horsemanship and a road ride around the local roads.
Length: Minimum of 6 hours horse/pony contact time per day.
Camp overnight at the paddocks when doing the multi day holiday programmes
You will need a tent, bedding, lunches for both days and anything else required for yourself during the overnight stay. Breakfast will be provided (if you have special dietary requirements then please bring this with you or let us know so we can cater for your needs). Dinner will be takeaways so ensure you have money for that. There is an age limit on this activity, unless the parent/caregiver is prepared to stay overnight. The participant must be able to take responsibility for themselves, listen to instructions and be self sufficient to take part un-accompanied.
