What a wonderful day the children had when they got to meet two Shetland ponies, Robbie and Solo. It was Robbie’s first time visiting a school and he was very well behaved. The children took it in turns to walk solo around the agility course, using commands and walking strategies. The last part of the agility course was to get solo to put a hoof in a hoop, which is a level 1 agility move. It was lovely to see all of the children engaged and the conversations they were having about the different equipment. They were asking questions and relating it to what they already knew from past experiences. They all received a certificate which is something for them to keep and treasure.
