For many young children and adults who have not been around horses before interacting with a horse on a trek can be an overwhelming experience. For this reason Kapiti Stables has a pony experience where a person is encouraged to meet, stroke, groom and spend time with a horse.
The pony experience occurs with a personal guide who will assist you in positively engaging with a pony or horse.
For both young and old, being around a horse on your birthday can be a positive experience. Kapiti Stables offers a place to have a few friends where you can interact with a pony or take a ride through the beautiful farmland and rolling hills of the Wellington Regional Park. Rides may also escort you down to the beach or around a smaller trails (or one of our paddocks for younger riders). Kapiti Stables provides fun opportunities to plait a pony’s mane, groom and play games with your pony.
Bring your own birthday cake and food and have a picnic outside in the coral.
