Great fun for those of you who are perhaps not fit enough to work on your own! You may enjoy the company of a friend to give you more confidence.

Children love to work in a group of friends. It is more fun and builds confidence as they watch each other. It is a good time to introduce new ponies to others before a show, and a good time for mums or dads to catch up.

This is also an ideal way to have a jumping lesson with friends.
