Attraction Information

Come Christmas, birthdays or really any old afternoon, kids are known for that classic line: can I have a pony? Well, they can (for a day at least) at Pony Pursuits!

Come and meet Bo Bo, Sam and the whole gang, including Crackerjack who may be retired but still loves taking part in unicorn parties. Taster rides are a great introduction for littl'uns while Pony Fun Sessions during the school holidays are just that - fantastic fun! You’ll get stuck in with grooming, tacking and a bit of poo picking (!) before playing games and even decorating a horseshoe.

Woodland Walks are a family favourite and follow public bridleways through 280 acres of parkland, all aboard your faithful steed of course! The team also make sure everyone gets a turn with therapeutic sessions for pony-mad kids with special needs. Just make sure you book in advance.

  • Tack, groom and ride a lovely team of horses
  • Woodland walks and pony parties
