Come and try your child’s first ride with us at Shetland Pony Club. Let them have fun and enjoy the magic of our adorable Shetland ponies. It is easy for all children to start pony riding with us in the beautiful English countryside. Adults can enjoy Shetland Pony Walking too.
About Shetland Pony Club
We are the leading specialist in children’s riding and pony fun in Surrey. Based at a little ranch hidden away in Stoke D’Abernon, Surrey, we introduce children to riding and ponies in a safe and gentle way. We are fully insured and hold a 5-star licence from the local authority, showing that we are committed to the highest standards of equine welfare. We are approved by the Association of British Riding Schools and operate to their standards. Our senior staff are also DBS checked and are trained in first aid and child safeguarding.
Our aim is to introduce children and parents to ponies in a fun and safe way with no pressure. Our Shetland ponies have given countless children their first pony ride. Starting with just one Shetland pony in 2008 we now have more than 20 waiting to welcome you.
We encourage parents, children and ponies to regularly enjoy being outdoors together in our beautiful wildflower meadows which overlook the Surrey Hills.
We are open from March to end of November and are very busy so book ahead online as we hate to disappoint. Appointments only please. We also have lovely gift vouchers available online which make a perfect gift. Our popular You Tube Kids Channel Shetland Pony Club TV has a new film about the ponies every week.

From Cobham: Take the A245 Stoke Road, cross the railway and pass Chelsea Football training ground on your right. After 400 yards turn left onto a farm track, Blue Bell Lane. ( If you reach the garden centre you have gone too far.) Take the farm track all the way to the top of the hill. The track is unsuitable for very low cars and has a 10mph speed limit. Please drive slowly and carefully, especially past the houses and use the passing places. Parking is marked on the left. Continue walking past the mast, down the path to the ranch.
From M25 Junction 9: Take the A245 Woodlands Lane. Turn right at the garden centre onto Stoke Road, Look for the Shetland Pony Club sign on Blue Bell Lane 400 yards on your right. Take the farm track all the way to the top of the hill. The track is unsuitable for very low cars and has a 10mph speed limit. Please drive slowly and carefully, especially past the houses and use the passing places. Parking is marked on the left. Continue walking past the mast, down the path to the ranch.
Travelling by Public Transport
By public transport the closest station is Cobham & Stoke d’Abernon on the London Waterloo to Guildford line. It’s then about a mile, or a 20-minute walk from the station, partly uphill on a rough track. So we advise you to take a taxi. There are normally taxis at Cobham Station from Cobham Cars: http://www.cobhamcars.com/01932 863335.
