Top Summer Holiday Activities with your Pony

1. Go to pony camp

Pony camp is a great way to spend quality time with your pony. Camps are also a great way to learn new things and make new friends. Spending time together will help you get to know your pony better, so you can show off at the next horse show!

2. Clean the stables, yard and barn

Cleaning the stables is an important part of caring for your pony. The best way to clean the stable is with a brush and broom, then follow this with a damp mop to remove all the dust from the floor and walls. You can also use specialist cleaners if you have them available, although these are not necessary unless you think your horse may be allergic or sensitive around their face area.

Once you have cleaned the stable thoroughly, it's time to turn your attention towards cleaning up any mess that has been made outside by your pony in his or her paddock or yard. You will need some disinfectant spray which can be used on any area where there may have been muddy paw prints left behind by your equine friend during playtime!

A clean yard is essential for good hygiene at home; this means weeding around fences so they don't become overgrown which could cause health problems such as infections if left untreated."

3. Go for a long picnic ride

If you’re looking for a new way to spend time with your pony, go for a long picnic ride. The best days for this are warm and sunny, so pick one of those! Make sure you have plenty of water and food, as well as blankets and maybe even a book. Pack up everything into your saddlebags and set off on an adventure with your pony.

You can bring along any friends who want to come along too – they’ll love it!

4. Pony walks in hand

You can have fun walking your pony in hand. This is a great way to get some exercise and to bond with your pony.

5. Learn to Plait and trim

Plaiting is a method of braiding the long hairs on your horse’s mane. The purpose of plaiting is to keep the hair out of their eyes while they are working or competing. It also looks pretty cool!

Trimming involves using scissors to cut away excess hair around their ears and hooves. This keeps them looking tidy.

6. Make friends with your pony

Pony riding is one of the best ways to meet people, especially if you're new to an area. You'll be able to make friends with other riders and their ponies, as well as take part in fun club activities like show jumping or dressage. Some pony clubs also offer training courses for beginners who want to learn how to ride their own ponies.

7. Clean your tack

It's a common misconception that pony tack is able to fend for itself, like a feral horse. But it's not: if you want your gear to last as long as possible, you need to clean it often and properly.

The most important thing when cleaning tack is using the right product. There are lots of different products available make sure you pick something made specifically for leather.

Once you've chosen the right cleaner (and don't forget about waterproofing!), start by brushing off any mud or dirt from your saddle or bridle before giving it a thorough scrubbing with leather soap trying not to use too much water. Once dry apply a leather conditioner to put the moisture back into the leather and keep it soft and supple.

8. Read the pony club manual

Reading the pony club manual is a great way to learn more about ponies, especially if you haven’t ridden before. It’s also a good way to get ideas for things you can do with your pony during the summer holidays. The manual will give you some information on all aspects of riding, including:

  • ●Pony care and management - how to look after your pony properly
  • ●The correct way to groom and tack up your pony
  • ●How to approach different types of jumps and obstacles

The key is to enjoy your pony - there's no better way

The key to a memorable summer holiday with your pony is just that: enjoying the time spent with your horse. It doesn't matter if you're young or old; the best thing about riding is that anyone can do it, regardless of age and experience.
