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 are limited in numbers and must be purchased on arrival at the park. Sorry but there are no advanced bookings.

Over school holidays we aim to run the pony rides on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays weather permitting. In May, June, end of August and September we only run the pony rides at weekends.

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

Sula, 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 – 5 years. Kizzie is a grey Welsh pony for children approx 6 – 8 years and Sula is a Highland pony but can carry up to approx. age 12. 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 email us for more details.

Looking forward to seeing you!
