Pony Days

Pony Days at the Margaret Haes Riding Centre run during the school holidays (usually Friday but please ask for other days).

Pony days are fun, everyone looks forward to it and enjoys coming.

The aim is to balance fun and responsibility with each rider required to look after their own pony involving most of the activities that is required if you had your own horse including:

  • Pony Handling– Grooming, tacking up, control and leading
  • Stable Management– Mucking out and cleaning
  • Quiz
  • Instruction– including riding for a minimum of 1 hour

We are happy to help anybody learn new skills.
