Pony Rides

Individual rides take place every Saturday and Sunday. We begin with a half-hour ride in the round yard and spend the remaining time in the Barn caring for the ponies - a very fun learning experience.

We start at 8:30am and finish 9:30am, no appointment necessary. This allows half an hour of close-up time with our miniatures in the Barn after the rides. Individual rides can be arranged during the week and school holidays by appointment only. Cost is $20 per child.

Rides are led around our round yard at a leisurely pace with complete adult supervision, our ponies are the perfect size for the children to feel comfortable and safe on their ride.

School Excursions

Our facilities

What an excellent opportunity for Schools to arrange an educational field trip for their students. We have regular visits from schools with a number of special needs students which we provide memorable, therapeutic activities to assist in their daily life experiences. The smiles on their faces when they ride our ponies is exciting to see.

School Holidays

Farm Days

During school holidays, we offer 1/2 day visits for children to learn what is involved in caring for a future horse of their own. Learning how to care for animals is a very rewarding experience for children.
