**SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAM**

Well what a day we had yesterday. We had a full house of children ranging from 7 to our eldest for the day 11. We had some kids who had done quite a bit of riding to those who had ridden twice and only on a lead pony. We had some kids who were a little shy and some kids who would talk to anyone.
It was not long until we had everyone knowing each other’s names and laughing along together.

I expected to enjoy the day as I love my job even on a not so great day BUT I did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did. Watching the kids grow in knowledge and especially confidence throughout the day was such an experience. Whether it was seeing one of our shyest in the beginning, happily chatting along to one of her fellow participants, like they were the oldest of friends, to the transformation in one girl, who was adamant the she would not ride (as she all of a sudden decided she was terrified), telling her mother at the end of the day that she “would most definitely be coming back on weekends too now”. Kids who had barely touched a horse before, were happily grooming, moving around, saddening and leading their own horses with such confidence and bliss, it was just fantastic.

I had a message from one parent not too long after they had left, asking if her daughter could re book for the 20th so obviously it was a major success!!

Please have a look through some of the photos taken throughout the day and the kids faces will say it all.

There are still spaces available on the 20th of jan but they are filling quickly. I do have the option to run a forth day, the 27th of jan if there is a demand for it.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to give me a call on 0402240852 or email us at admin@prettysallyridingranch.com

Thank you to everyone who participated yesterday, can’t wait to see you all again soon.

Cheers

Walk Through Bethlehem

I haven’t had a chance to write about this, due to the Christmas break, However…
This year we were honored to be guests (as well as 6 of our trusted horses…and one pony)  at the Walk Through Bethlehem in
hosted in Epping  on the 18th,  19th and  20th of December.
It was a first for us and our horses but was an amazing experience which we will hopefully be involved in again.12376157_1035108746531797_8889494390003994474_n

** For those who are interested ** We practice what we preach, each night we had 5 standardbreds and 1 other breed (white horse as necessary for the scripture), Standardbreds are and amazing breed and took it all in there stride, all our standardbreds had not had there harnesses on again until this event and they didnt even bat an eyelid, crowds of hundreds and they were enjoying the specatators, they are an unflappable breed who are worth there weight in gold and we wouldnt have done it as easily with any other breed. If you havent heard of them, look in to them or better yet ask us about them.12369077_1035108736531798_7919850082981294150_n

Our horses were amazing and handled the crowds even better than we expected, with thousands of people flooding in every night, and everyone wanting a pat the horses were very patient and loved being spoilt. We had a total of 6 horses and one shetland pony on scene alongside there chariots wearing there harnesses. With 2 horses and the pony being patted by visitors (so we could rotate each horse to have a feed and not get bored)

There were camels, pigs, sheep, goats, turkeys , donkeys, cows and so many more animals which our horses had never seen in there life, and they loved every bit.
