We can identify suitable competitions and help pony/rider combinations to find a starting point, set goals and achieve objectives over a season.

Whether riding a novice or open pony, riders learn to fine tune their riding and get results. Show Support Time to get organised. Competing at shows can be stressful. We can help with your personal show scehdule, transport, stabling and accomodation. Once at the show we can provide assistance with course walking, warm-up and strategy.

Pony Camps (for children with their own pony) During school holidays we offer 3/5 day pony camps. Really popular with children as they learn quickly within a group, enjoy each others company and have great fun. The camps include: Showjumping, Cross Country, Flat Work, Pony Club Games, Hacking in local forestry and Stable management.
