High Beech Riding School
At High Beech Riding School their aim is to create the perfect experience for your childrens pony rides. Their safe environment is the perfect place for your children to experience their first pony ride. The riding school was started by a husband and wife that have had passions for horses since they were children. They eventually opened up their riding school in 1972 and haven’t looked back. They have over 30 horses to their name including their collection of ponies.
Pony rides are one of the many services available at High Beech Riding School. The pony rides take place in an enclosed area on the farm that is safe from the other animals. When riding there is always a trained staff member guiding the horse and younger children, aged 3 – 4 and required to also have an adult walking alongside for additional safety. It’s import for the children to have fun, but they want to make sure that the children are safe at all times. One of the most important safety features is a helmet, which can be rented at the farm.
The pony rides are sold in two options, a 15-minute session, and a 30-minute session. You save a little bit for the 30-minute session but younger kids may find it very long to ride a pony for 30 minutes – you’ll be surprised at how much energy you use riding a horse! Whichever session you choose you can be certain that your children are going to have fun. The whole experience is something most children never get and it’s something very valuable for them. Interacting with animals and riding ponies is something they’ll talk about for weeks to come and you might even have helped them discover their passion.
