Riding Holidays for Children

Pony Week at Skipton

Pony Weeks

Pony Weeks are the perfect riding holiday for any child who has ever wanted to own a pony.  Each child is allocated their ‘own’ pony at the beginning of the week and they learn how to groom and care for their mount.  Children who have their own pony are welcome – they can bring it with them or ride ours.

These holidays are non-residential, although details of camping, bed and breakfast, or holiday cottage rental can be provided.

Previous riding experience is not necessary to join in – but a love of ponies is!

Pony Week runs Monday to Friday from 9am to 1pm inclusive. The children will ride each day, either a riding lesson or a hack, have lectures and participate in a variety of horse and pony care tasks. We also provide opportunities for Pony Club Members to earn achievement badges.

Parents are encouraged to come along on Friday afternoon to see the progress their child has made.

Please Note:

Children must bring a snack, and warm and waterproof clothing.

Children will be split into groups based upon their riding ability; this is for their safety and enjoyment.  If this is an issue please discuss at time of booking. 

To secure a place on Pony Week, a non-refundable deposit is required per child per week and this this should be accompanied by a completed booking form. This years prices and our new booking form can be found here on our Booking and Prices page.
