Shetland pony lessons
weekly lessons for children aged 2-8 (height and weight restrictions may apply)
We are located in Curdridge between Wickham and Botley just off the A334 and facilities allow us to open for riding all year round. We are so pleased to be opening again for shetland pony lessons but please read our information below!
These 20 minute riding sessions are designed to be fun for younger children, helping them to gain confidence in a safe environment without pressure. A member of staff works individually with each rider and parent/carer but riding within a group of other children (currently restricted numbers ). Our Shetland ponies are very appealing to small children and the session can consist of a countryside walk or a more structured lead rein lesson in the arena.
*£17 per session – £16 per session multibuy
Lessons missed during lockdown will not be affected by this slight price increase.
To book this option please choose group lessons on the booking system. Our friendly, experienced team of staff supervise Shetland pony group sessions. We cannot specify which instructor or pony until the day.

For those children that are more experienced Pony Magic Shetland riders we offer 30 minute private lessons with Instructor Nina, during our normal Shetland pony opening hours. Please call 07780 667122 or email Julia@ponymagic.co.uk to book for this option.
*£22 per session
