Pony Pal nursery school visits are a wonderful way of allowing the children to achieve skills through working with the ponies and adhering to the National Curriculum. We can work with colours and numbers by selecting ribbons to decorate the mane, team building and sharing.
The children can enjoy grooming the pony and learn how to work around an animal. They can also take turns to lead the pony through an obstacle course.
The pony is able to enter the nursery school, they are fully insured to do so, they wear shoes to prevent damage to the floor and a nappy bag.
We work in small groups of 4-6 children in sessions throughout the hour visit. Our ponies/donkey/unicorn are all trained to walk beside wheelchairs/walking aids so this activity is fully inclusive for everyone.
