Pony Prep is a great way to introduce children to horses and horse-riding. We spend time with Belle the mechanical horse, Bonnie the electronic horse, we learn to groom a horse, work around the Stables and each child has a private 15 minute riding on a real horse . We take a maximum of three children per session, so there’s lots of individual attention as well as good, social fun with other children. Suitable for 5 years and over. $770 per nine week term/$100 trial. We offer Pony Prep after school and on weekends and can organise specific times to suit you provided we have at least two children participating for a term.
