Pony Days run from 10am to 3pm daily, and parents also have the option of dropping off early (from 8.30am onwards) or collecting late (up to 4.30pm) for an additional fee. As well as riding each day, and taking care of the horses, riders will take part in plenty of games and activities to get to know each other and their ponies.
Achievement Badges can be earned by Pony Club members.
£55 per day. A one-off registration fee of £20 for non-STE members applies.
Places are strictly limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.

In the Christmas holidays and February half term, there will usually only be one ride per pony day in order to work around the weather conditions!
There are early drop off (8.30am onwards) and late pick up (5.30pm latest) slots available on Pony Days to help parents with work commitments. Please note Christmas Holiday Pony days will finish at 3pm with late collection only available until 4.30pm. The children won’t be “taught” during these slots before the official pony day commences, but will undertake a supervised activity such as helping on the yard or doing some activity sheets.
Please note – children that are dropped off before 9.50am or collected after 4.10pm that have not signed up in advance for this service will be charged the respective early drop off/late pick up fee.
