Pony Play
Thornton Park offers a selection of beginner to novice children's horse riding and fun pony care classes from 4 years of age, the range of classes starts with our fun pony care class 'Pony Pals' which is all about learning about ponies using pony learning games, this class is specifically aimed at younger children.
The next level is our very popular 'Pony Play' classes, which combines learning to ride with learning to care and handle a pony , this type of class helps the child's confidence and is a great stepping stone to moving to the next horse riding group level lessons.
