Riding Opportunities

The 3 farm horsesCome and meet Champion, Murphy and Jester soon

 

Our horse riding programme is professional, friendly and approved by both the British Horse Society and the Riding for the Disabled Association. We have three horses and two donkeys and a floodlit outdoor riding arena.  We offer city children accessible low-cost riding opportunities and provide three types of riding related programmes:

  • Pony & Donkey Rides Children age 4 yrs + have the chance to get on a horse and ages 2 yrs + can enjoy donkey rides.
  • Pony Club Young people living in the London Borough of Camden can learn horse care & riding skills.
  • Riding Therapy We offer therapeutic riding to young people with special needs.

 

Two donkeys

Farm donkeys 2018 Best friends Nora & Dora

 

This year we welcomed Nora and Dora to the farm from The Donkey Sanctuary. The two jennies are very friendly and love lots of attention so they have come to the right place! We are excited to have them at the farm and they receive plenty of attention from visitors and staff & volunteers who care for them every day.

Nora & Dora have settled in very well, getting to know their new environment and meeting all the other animals. The two donkeys share a stall in the stables alongside the horses and during the day are usually found with the sheep in the pasture. Our professional riding staff have trained Nora & Dora to give rides to children. Now they are ready to ride, come and see them soon.

 

Test your donkey knowledge!
