We are lucky enough to have our own riding stables with ponies on-site, which caters for all children from age 4 upwards. Pony Grove is run by a very experienced mother who is registered with both The British Horse Society and The Pony Club as a qualified instructor. The stables are fully licensed and insured (Surrey Heath Borough Council NVLIC/78463/19).
Lessons are offered after school most days of the week and are held in a 40m x 20m all-weather arena, or children go for hacks around the school's 35 acres. There is also a dedicated cross country jumping field. Within the stables are a changing room and a large tack room where children learn a variety of facts about grooming, caring for ponies etc. Hats and boots can be loaned for lessons but we recommend in the longer term that children purchase their own.
Various in house activities are organised such as gymkhanas and dressage competitions, Halloween and Christmas themed rides/games and Pony Days. Some years we are able to offer summer pony camps. The emphasis is always on enjoyment while learning in a safe environment, at a pace appropriate to the individual child.
Pony Grove is a certified Pony Club centre, so all children can become members of The Pony Club http://www.pcuk.org and take their proficiency badges and tests within the familiar grounds of Hall Grove.
