What you'll do
You will start your experience by meeting the ponies in their field, getting to know them, giving them a quick brush and learning how to put on their head collar, before we head off for the walk. We will walk up the lane and through the fields, going at the ponies pace and allowing the them to browse on the plants in the hedgerows. We’ll also collect cuttings and weeds to take back with us for their pony friends. You will learn about wild plants and trees and how they benefit the ponies diet, plus more about pony care and behaviour. We will finish the walk back at the pony field where we will settle them in and stop for a drink of your choice and a slice of cake. You will be able to really get to know the ponies as individuals and see their different characters and personalities. With a calm and gentle approach, it won’t take long before they are queueing up for a scratch from you.

Meet the ponies
Not all ponies are alike—you’ll understand why when you get to know Star, Kiwi, Flower and Katori. These miniature rescue ponies are gentle but cheeky, and love getting scratches from visitors. They’re known for their personalities and having appetites bigger than their little bodies.

Where you'll be
We will meet at The Three Horseshoes pub, before walking to our private pony field to collect the ponies. We then head out on the quiet country lane walking though public footpaths and woodland before returning to the pony field.
