Dartmoor Dazzlers

Dartmoor Dazzlers are kind, reliable and gentle and will enjoy having fun with their friends and socialising as they begin to be more adventurous. They are inquisitive and will enjoy taking on new challenges and learning more about the world around them.

They will try new things as they learn about how to look after ponies and have a deeper understanding of animal welfare and responsibility. Their riding will progress in leaps and bounds as they begin to discover how much more fun there is to be had with their riding as they explore the outdoors. Dartmoor Dazzlers will also be considerate to those around them and how they can play their part in promoting kindness and respect at the yard and everywhere else.

Dartmoor Dazzlers will work through topics within six themes which can be completed in any order to suit their individual preferences.

Stickers are awarded upon completion of topics. Once a theme is complete an iron-on cloth badge is awarded. When all themes have been achieved the Dartmoor Dazzlers rosette and certificate are awarded.
