Pony Rides

In the warmer months we offer pony rides at Auchingarrich! Please check in advance to avoid disappointment but weather permitting we have 3 ponies waiting to say hello!

Vouchers must be purchased on arrival at the park. Sorry but there are no advanced bookings.

We aim to run the pony rides on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday weather permitting over the school holidays. In May and June and September we only run the pony rides at the weekends.

Please check in advance to avoid disappointment as inclement weather, ground conditions and the welfare/health of the ponies can lead to cancellations.

Spike, Kizzie and Ellie are our ponies who carry the children on a walk around the field. Ellie is a Shetland and can only carry smaller children approx. age 3 – 6 years Kizzie is a grey Welsh pony for children approx 5 – 8 years and Spike is our old boy but can carry up to approx. age 11 but he is 14.2 hh (quite big!). He is not always available. The ponies that are allocated to the children will be at the discretion of staff.There must be an accompanying adult to support each child on the pony’s back due to our insurance conditions. Under 3 years may have photos taken on the pony if time permits.

Vouchers for rides should be purchased from the shop and you will be given a time slot to try to avoid long queues. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times and shouldn’t enter the riding area until asked to by staff. Horses are unpredictable and children need to be closely supervised.

We are able to take group bookings if arranged in advance for more than ten children. We are also able to offer pony parties this year. Please call for more details.

Look forward to seeing you!
