A pony ride is an opportunity for children to ride real horses for a short time, At Nasr Polo we offer summer camps, private children’s parties and individual pony rides. Children on pony rides do not handle the pony themselves, but they need to be old enough to sit up straight and hold their head up without support. Pony rides are given on individually hand-led ponies, or in a group of ponies, usually four to six.

To provide the best experience in horse riding for children the Recommendations vary with the size of the pony, but children who participate in pony rides need to be able to sit up and hold their head up without support, thus child under the age of one would be too small to safely ride ponies. Best practices are that children be at least three years old,Maximum size of riders usually correlates to the size of the pony, but standards range from under 80 pounds (36 kg), to about 100 pounds (45 kg). Weight, not age, usually limits the biggest riders, but our program requires participants to be no older than 5 years of age.
