Pony Playgroups (Term 2 & 3 only)

A wonderful opportunity to get together with other Mum's and toddlers having fun with the ponies in relaxing and peaceful surroundings.

The aim of the playgroup is to prepare children for horse riding lessons from a young age (2-4yrs). The 1 hour weekly session gives children time to build confidence around the ponies, as well as being given opportunities to learn some of the concepts used in our horse riding lessons. The morning is set up with activities for self selection on arrival (art/craft, toys, trampoline, swing set) all within our full fenced “Party Shed” area. Throughout the morning your facilitator will take 2-3 children and parents at a time to spend some time with the ponies getting to either brush, wash or decorate them as well as having a small pony ride. There will be tea/coffee available throughout the morning.

An example of what to expect each week:

Horse related game

Free Play (art/craft, toys, trampoline, swing set)

Pony Ride/Brushing

Pack Toys Up together and either Story Reading/Song

Farewell

Our program will require parents to supervise their children at all times including participating with your child in the activities provided, helping them navigate safely around the ponies.
