Calling All Young Equine Enthusiasts!

Looking for a summer adventure filled with learning, laughter, and hoofed friends? Join us at Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary for our Pony Pals Summer Scheme 2024! Designed for Junior Group (ages 5-8) and Senior Group (ages 9-12), our program promises exciting activities, educational experiences, and unforgettable memories with our beloved equines (horses, ponies, and donkeys).

About the Summer Scheme:

🐴 Junior Group (Ages 5-8):Our Junior sessions offer young equine lovers a hands-on introduction to equine care and welfare. From grooming adorable creatures to engaging in interactive games, your child will embark on a journey of discovery and compassion in a safe and nurturing environment.

🐎 Senior Group (Ages 9-12):Senior sessions provide older children with immersive experiences in equine care and responsibility. With a focus on hands-on activities and engaging learning opportunities, participants will develop valuable skills while fostering empathy and respect for equines.

What's Included:

  • Engaging Educational Activities
  • Hands-On Equine Care
  • Interactive Games
  • Fun and Creative Arts & Crafts
  • Picnic Lunch: Each session will either end or start with a 'picnic' lunch in one of our garden spaces or in the barn. This will include a soft drink or water and a packet of sweets/crisps from the sanctuary. Please bring a packed lunch.
  • Safety Debrief: Prior to activities, we conduct a comprehensive safety debrief to ensure a secure and enjoyable experience for all participants.
  • Hat Fitting: Safety is our top priority! Each session includes a hat fitting to ensure proper head protection while engaging in equine activities.
