Service Description

Animals Helping People Saturday Club Saturday club will be reopening at the sanctuary in February and will be open to children aged 6 to 12 and take place from 11:00am to 12pm on Saturdays* At Saturday Club children will get the opportunity to learn all about horses and ponies, and take part in fun and educational activities each week which will all go towards them gaining a certificate in equine care from the sanctuary. Each session will be broken into topics, starting with the most basic of ‘What is a horse’ right up to tacking up a pony on the 6th week and taking a ride around the barn. We cover basics of horse identification, as well as stable management lessons such as grooming and mucking out. Every 6th week is our fun day with themed competitions to prove our skills. It’s important for us to help teach the next generation how to care for animals and the importance of equine welfare. We of course also want everyone to have a fantastic time. These are perfect for your daughter or son to get actively involved in horsemanship and equine care. Each session is £20 per person with a discount given to those who book 6 weeks in advance (do not have to be sequential dates). £100 for 6 weeks if booked in advance. All sessions must be booked in advance of the date. Unfortunately we cannot offer refunds for those who fail to attend a session. All proceeds of the Saturday club go to helping care for the animals at the sanctuary; and to assist with the ongoing rescue and welfare work the sanctuary undertakes. *Saturdays may not run sequentially due to other activities taking place at the sanctuary and the limitations of our Volunteers. All dates will be advertised on our website for booking when available.
