Over the last few years we have been offering introductory sessions for schools, colleges and social groups, where children can come along and have a taster of what riding and owing a pony is all about.

In our sessions the children would be split into groups where they would learn all about care of the pony and have a hands on grooming session. They would then have a short ride (where they do the basic of holding the reins and correct position while riding). We also show them how to care for the ponies tack and what we feed our horses to.


 All the children would need to bring is long sleeves, long trousers and shoes or boots with a small flat heel.  We can provide riding hats.

The sessions are approximately 2 hours (depending on class sizes). We can offer shorter or longer sessions to fit the schools requirements.

We also offer weekly/fortnightly lessons for schools and colleges. We can offer these during school hours as well as Tuesday and Wednesday evenings or weekends.

But that’s not all.


We also offer a mobile petting farm so you can have the farm experience at the school. This allows the chance for the whole school to get involved with different sessions throughout the day.


We are always willing to help schools with their curriculum needs, so let us know your requirements and we’ll do our best to accommodate your group.

At Courtlands we don’t just have horses, we also have other animals. These include donkeys, goats, pigs, ducks, geese and chickens. We can easily add a session at the petting farm to your visit to the stables, but that’s not all.
