What kid doesn’t love ponies?! Be your tots’ hero and give them the opportunity to ride a real-life pony at Happy Hooves Stables in Bedford. This is not your usual riding school, either. It’s accessible for all and lessons are designed for the 2 to 12 year olds.
Learning to ride is fun and safe! The lessons take place in an enclosed riding arena, either on 1-2-1 or 1-2-2 basis, so each young rider gets the individual attention they need. Happy Hooves is all about the encounter between your tots and the animals. We’re willing to bet that becoming friends with a real pony is an experience your little ones will remember forever!
It’s a well-known fact that horses and kids respond well to each other and build positive connections. That’s why the pony encounters are particularly good for tots who face specific learning, societal and communication challenges. The trained instructor at the stables will make sure every little rider is having a good time, whatever their needs may be.
