Owning your own pony or horse is a huge responsibility, commitment and as some of you may know a huge dent in your wallet! The actual purchasing of a pony is often the smallest cost, the real cost is in time, money and continuous care that needs to be given 365 days a year (Yes…rain, shine or snow!)
Ponies need to be visited by the farrier/trimmer regularly, wormed, visited by the dentist every 12 months, fed, have turnout & shelter among other important factors. Horses and ponies are expensive to keep and their owners need to have extensive knowledge of equine welfare to ensure that the horse/pony is well looked after.
Here at Roylands Riding Stables we understand what its like to have a young child “nagging” every day about the perfect pony she desires, all because of the “my little pony” craze! So why not give them the opportunity to feel like they own a pony without the huge cost and time that you would need to dedicate with buying your own?
