For many children, pony parties are their first chance to meet a pony face-to-face. That first meeting could be the start of a lifetime of loving horses and we want to make sure that the experience is a positive one for all involved - both human and equine.

We want to support businesses to provide this much needed service. We want to promote safe and encouraging environments for people to experience the benefits of horses and ponies, making sure that education and welfare is at the heart of everything.
