For anyone thinking of getting a pony or horse for their child or for those who just love being around them, a good idea would be to show your child what it takes to own and keep a pony. A Pony Day out is ideal.
Places are limited to just six children per date and bookings can be made via the website at www.remussanctuary.org or by contacting the Sanctuary on 01277 356191. Children will need to bring a packed lunch and refreshments for the day.
Each day, children attending will be ‘loaned’ a pony, to make up its feed, be taught how to groom and turn it out into the field, shown how to clean out the pony’s stable and make a nice new bed for him or her to come back into later. There’ll also be lots of tips, information and fun throughout the day.
Events and fundraising play a vital part in raising much-needed funds to keep the Sanctuary open, and founder Sue Burton said: “We’re always delighted to welcome children and horse- lovers to the Sanctuary for our Pony Days. The work we do here is vital and our Pony Days are great fun and a great way of educating children on animal welfare.”
