A Bit About Us

Meet Tanya, owner of Bits & Boots Pony Rides. 

I enjoy teaching children and adults all about horses, horse care and riding.

 

My children were lucky that I was able to take them to pony club from a young age and as they progressed I became an instructor at pony club. At pony club it is a requirement to have your own horse so I could see there were many people who were not in a position to go to pony club due to horse ownership being difficult for many reasons including agistment, costs and knowledge. I would often receive queries regarding where to go for a pony ride and if I gave lessons outside of pony club. These queries started me thinking and I started Bits & Boots Pony Rides in 2015. I started off slowly with my focus on giving children a fun horse experience. My business has grown beyond my wildest dreams and we now offer much more than just pony rides.

Hi, I'm Sarah. I have had a love for horses my whole life and have been learning everything I could about horses since I could read. I still enjoy researching and learning anything new to do with horses. My children were also lucky to have the opportunity to go to pony club which is where my passion grew to teach and share my knowledge with children (and adults) who love horses too. Tanya and I have been friends since meeting at pony club and as Bits and Boots grew I joined the team. I love helping a rider grow their knowledge, ability and confidence and really enjoy their horse journey.

All instructors are NCAS qualified.

We also have a team of experienced horse people to assist our programs.
