The Mini/Junior Rider Series is a set of 1-1.5 hour long lessons/sessions with various content tailored for our younger, beginner riders.
This series was designed in order to give our younger riders much more variety and additional ways to learn outside of their regular Lead Rein/Beginner classes.
These sessions will always include a ride in various formats. Depending upon the content of the sessions, the ride could either be in the arena or out hacking. The duration of the ride will be determined upon the content of the session. Some of the sessions will be entirely ridden, whilst some will contain additional pony related activities. Please rest assured, your rider will always have a ride!
The following sessions are currently available in this series.
· Pony Party Games – Gymkhana Games
· Paint Your Pony and Ride – Pony safe paints are used to turn your pony into a My Little Pony and then we go out for a ride
· Handy Pony – Riding round an obstacle course
· Snakes and Ladders – Pole work in the form of ladders and bending/weaving exercises for the snakes
· Ponies Tea Party – Groom, ride and the riders then pick their ponies tea from our ingredients.
