This account is from 2019. The Coronavirus has meant that we have not met this year.
2 children, from Wolverdene Special School, come to learn all about caring for ponies and stable management. They have 6 sessions and then their classmates get to learn all about what they have been doing and two more come for the next batch of sessions.
Tommie Gross is the leader and she is supported by someone from the teaching staff at the school.
NEW ACTIVITY - PONY CARE
AND SENSORY PONIES
In 2019 we piloted new activities such as Tommie's Training (above). As well as learning about care and maintenance of ponies we tried a sensory experience for children with more physical challenges. Both activities were tremendously successful and we had hoped to extend this in 2020. Sadly Coronavirus has prevented this however we have managed to plan some resources for 2021 to develop our ideas.
