Woodland Hacking

Once the children are able to walk, trot and canter they can go hacking in Trent Park Woods. There is no road-riding involved; we go straight out onto the bridle paths allowing for a safe and enjoyable experience.  All of the rides are escorted, either one-to-one with an instructor, or join a group of other children led by one or more of the instructors.

Pony Days for Children

A lot of the children that live in the vicinity of Trent Park Equestrian Centre had the very first riding lessons during our Pony Days and Weeks. We start with the Tiny Tots age group of age 4 to 6, for a 3 hour introductory session which includes confidence building, riding the ponies, grooming and craft activities to keep their busy minds engaged. Our Pony days are for children aged 7 to 14 of any ability – they include 2 hours of riding and practical horse care under the supervision of qualified instructors. Pony Day Plus is for more advanced older children of age 12 years upwards.
