Fun with Our Horses

PFatpondwithhorsestrim.jpgPony Farm horses and ponies know how to have a good time.

 

In addition to lessons, horse shows, and our hunter derby, here are some of the other activities that campers and horses enjoy.

 

 

 

 

 

Vaulting

 

Gruffy, our magnificent, patient, and super-sweet Clydesdale, is your go-to guy for vaulting (gymnastics on horseback).

Exit the Ring

 

Quiet country roads and friendly neighbors make for wonderful trail rides along the back roads, woodland trails, and through fields, orchards, and pastures of nearby properties.

Pony Spa

 

A hard-working pony deserves a luxurious wash and groom.

Carriage Driving

 

Take a carriage ride in the ring or on the quiet roads around the farm. Try your hand at the reins -- you'll never find a more enthusiastic instructor than Camp Director, Boo Martin!
