Mondays – Private Lessons and Hacks
Every Monday throughout the school holidays there will be private lessons or hacks available throughout the day at our normal rate.

Tuesdays – Pony Care and Riding Day
Every Tuesday throughout the holidays we will be running a pony care and riding day. This is for children age 5yrs and over of any riding ability, from complete beginners to competent riders. The day will include lots of stable management such as, grooming, mucking out, and tack cleaning and bathing the ponies. Each child will have a group riding lesson with children of similar riding ability in the morning and join in some fun gymkhana games in the afternoon. The day is 9am – 4pm and costs £40, half days also available 9-12/1-4pm £25.

Wednesdays – Hack and Help
Wednesdays are for children who can competently walk, trot and canter. During the morning each rider will ride on a group hack, route and length of hack will depend on ability of riders that day. Example routes are, Swithland woods, Bradgate park, off road hacking next to Castle Hill Park. Throughout the afternoon the children will be helping out at the stables, grooming, leading and washing the horses are some of the jobs that they will be taking part in. The day is 9am – 4pm and costs £25.

Thursdays – Pony Care and Riding Day
Same as Tuesdays.

Fridays – Fun Fridays!
Fun Fridays are for children who can already ride off the lead rein in walk and trot and are starting to canter. There is always lots of pony fun to be had on fun Fridays, such as, jumping competitions, dressage, handy pony, learning to lunge, introduction to polo and lots more! Every Friday is different. There are always lots of rosettes to be won. The day starts at 9am and finishes at 4pm, the cost is £40.
