Our Story

Pony Magic was launched in April 2009 by Julia Coles BHSAI ( Level 3 Coach in Complete Horsemanship )to provide a new service offering Shetland pony rides across Hampshire and a second branch was opened a year later by Gemma Serdet to cover the London and Surrey areas.


In 2010 we launched our weekly pony ride sessions which have proved so popular at our Hampshire branch and operate all year round.In 2017 with Madgwick Carriage Masters we bought our own new premises in Curdridge and after lots of hard work we opened the gates at Oaklands in the New Year of 2018 to offer riding, parties and other related activities for younger riders aged 2 – 8. We have a fun progress scheme and our little shop provides basic riding kit for small children.


Our ponies are also available to hire for many types of event, country shows, weddings, panto and therapy work.

In addition to our Shetland pony riding lessons, we now offer private tuition on our beautiful horses, with Julia Coles our BHS Level 3 Coach. Julia has over 25 years experience teaching a range of riders.

For adults who already have riding experience we can offer flat work lessons on our beautiful Andalusian gelding Nico or our Friesian stallion Reggie.

For children aged 8+ we can offer flatwork or jumping lessons on our lovely school master Soldier.
