What's next?

Once your child has learnt the basics of riding on their lessons at LPEC they may wish to progress to being more involved with the ponies and care for them through a loan scheme, we offer several different packages, designed to suit your childs age and ability. 

If you would like your child to join in one of these pony clubs then please get in contact by email to katie at liscombeparkec@aol.com.

The packages are outlined below;

PLEASE NOTE: 

None of these pony loan schemes require you to care for the pony outside of these allocated times, the staff at LPEC look after the ponies for the rest of the time, likewise there are no extra costs involved or expected from you other than those stated on this page EG vets costs or broken equipment. You will not be permitted to visit or catch in the ponies outside of the allocated times.fghfhgfhg

 

 

 

This pony loan is aimed at children who are off the lead rein. The children arrive at the stables and are shown how to tack the ponies up (put on their birdles and saddles). They then mount and join a small group ride from 4.30-5pm. After their riding lesson the children have half an hour of being shown how to untack and either take the pony back to their field or put them to bed in their stable (checking the haynet and rugging up) this depends on the ponies routine. The children will ride the same pony most weeks, which helps to build a bond. Riders on this package receive a 20% discount on group lessons and holiday activities.

Every Wednesday 4.15pm-5.30pm

£120.00pcm Payable on the first Wednesday of every month.

 

 

 

This pony loan is aimed at children currently riding on either a 30 or 45 minute lesson and are starting to learn to jump. On Thursday's the children will ride from 4.30pm-5pm the riding lessons will work towards something in particular for several weeks in a row, eg jumping, poles or hacking. 5pm-5.30pm the children will untack their pony and either take the pony back to their field or put them to bed in their stable (checking the haynet and rugging up) this depends on the ponies routine. On Saturdays the children will spend their first 30 mins grooming, picking out their feet and tacking up. Their riding time is 1.30-2pm and similarly to Thursdays they will follow a theme for several weeks, we find that this really encourages the children and improves their riding skills and confidence. After the group ride the children are shown how to care for the ponies and put them to bed and feed them a treat. 

Level two of the LPEC pony club is the next step up from level one, the children are always supervised by a member of staff but are shown new skills and taught the responsibility of caring for a pony. 

Every Thursday 4.30-5.30pm and Saturday 1pm-2.30pm

£190.00pcm Payable on the first Thursday of each month.
