They will understand the responsibility in caring for horses and ponies all year round – ensuring happy, healthy ponies. They will also begin to explore issues they really care about and know how to use their voice and actions to make a real difference. They will also share their skills with others as they look at leadership and campaigning. Their riding skills will continue to develop and they will begin to consider the health and wellbeing benefits that come with a love for ponies.

Welshie Wizzers 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 Welshie Wizzers rosette and certificate are awarded.

How to get involved

There are two ways for your child to join in the fun with Pony Stars and begin their adventure.

If you have your own horse

If you have your own pony then a BHS Accredited Professional Coach can come to you, you can travel to them or you can set up your own group with friends on your yard or nearby yards and enjoy the activities together. Our Accredited Professional Coaches hold coaching qualifications in addition to regularly attending first aid and safeguarding courses to ensure they can provide safe, high quality delivery for your child.

If you do not own your own horse

Or you’re not sure if they would be suitable, don’t worry. There are BHS Approved Riding Centres throughout the UK that deliver Pony Stars with their facilities and horses.  

Your child will make new friends and join in with group activities within our friendly centres. Have the reassurance that all our BHS Approved Riding Centres meet high standards of horse welfare and coaching.
