Own a Pony Week


At Grovely we offer children/teenagers the opportunity to have a Grovely horse or pony for the whole week! This week is dedicated to you, and we offer an action packed week full of riding, fun and competitions. Each child/teenager is encouraged to think of the horse or pony they have for the week as their own. Riding for a whole week is a great way to make progress in your riding, and learning about horses.

We work towards the BHS Junior Progressive and BHS Progressive tests on the week, with plenty of lessons, hacking, picnic rides and even riding your pony into the river! We end the week with a competition, ranging from fancy dress and handy pony to showjumping.

Each teacher gives prizes for best looked after pony and progress prize! Bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink. Own a Pony Weeks are available to children/teenagers who walk, trot and canter independently.
Monday - Friday - 10am - 4pm each day - £300 (£50 deposit with booking)

2018 Dates - July 30th - August 3rd and August 27th - 31st

"My eldest son began learning with Sam when he was just 6 and over the years I have seen what a talent she has for teaching – from the smallest children to the more experienced adults and teenagers."
