OWN A PONY DAYS

 

At Cobbles Academy not only do we teach you to ride we also teach you how to care for you horse or pony. 

Throughout the year we hold own a pony days to teach you aspects of topics such as:

Too name a few, we do All the badges and if they want to do more after the oapd they can. If they do external work they only have to pay for the badges no other costs are involved.

  • Horse Anatomy

  • Boots and Bandages

  • Stable and Yard Management

  • first aid for humans and horses

  • feeding and worming

 

            The day consists of the morning chores, mucking out, field management, hay nets, waters etc..

Then we tend to have dinner because all the kids are hungry by then! They then ride in one or two groups depending how many are there. And before they have to do night yard they sit down for a short while and complete the badges that are based upon the themes i have chosen for that day. We work on the big pony club badges to ensure good knowledge is passed on. The work sheets that we do is all designed by myself and approved by our pony club administrator, so that all relevant information is covered and given to my riders. The badge and worksheets are no extra cost as its all included, making it affordable, educational and worthwhile. 

 

 

PONY PARTIES

 

I cater for secondary and collage level pupils. Over the years I have trained many up to collage standard level and above to give them the incentive to take Equine Studies as their chosen next step. I recommend Rodbaston to those that show potential to make a difference in our equine world. I always take any of  the girls or boys that ride at Cobbles, due to the fact they know the horses and the standard I expect off them.

SUMMER DRESSAGE (INTERNAL)

 

Again this is for both riding school and club, held through-out the summer holidays, rosettes award and doesn’t cost a lot to enter because its all about having fun and the test sheets are available to take and learn.

 

FANCY DRESS

 

We run fancy dress for the different occasions through the year, the club get points for doing this and there is a first prize to those in club/riding school. We encourage the wackier the better, the horses enjoy it just as much as us, Chelsea especially likes to wear hats and ted loves a bit of purple tinsel!!

 

 

DISABLED GROUPS

 

We do cater for all different needs and I love seeing how horses make a difference to people lives. We have the Benardos group join us, and a visually impaired group, we also cater for the individual. From just coming and interacting with them doing touch and feel sensory development too getting on and riding round the ménage. Its a super thing to do and it can be very valuable to those that could benefit.
