Pony riding and care

We are recommended on Holiday Lettings by Tripadvisor.

On Hiidenniemi animal farm children can get to know the pony by pony riding and care. Riding is an enjoyable experience for many kids and before the riding kids can also brush and take care of the pony.

Shetland pony Ali and pony rides are part of Hiidenniemi animal Farms activities and are one of the most popular. Children can get to know the pony, take care of it and saddle it before riding. This is a pleasant experience for many and a good way to get to know the pony, after which the riding is also more natural.

Ali pony is nice and steady to ride. Before riding, everyone in the group can brush Ali and make it ready for riding. Together, we learn to put the saddle and bridle for Ali and check that the hooves are clean. After riding, Ali can be feed and take pictures of it. Children will also get a rosette which is a certificate for caring the pony in the right way.

For this activity, kids should wear good shoes that stay on the feet also during the riding. You can borrow a riding helmet at Hiidenniemi animal farm.
