Happy Rider with Pony

To ensure high standards of education and safety, we insist that every child learning to ride does so through 1 to 1 tuition with a qualified Think Like a Pony instructor. Our instructors are all trained to work with students through an empathetic approach to teaching.

You will see below that our costs for private tuition are highly competitive in the market. This is because it is important to us that riding is affordable and accessible for children and their families. Whether it is through watching their child’s lesson, attending a Club event or an educational evening, we encourage parents to learn alongside their child free of charge. This is a fantastic way for you to get involved and learn about riding and ponies yourself!
