Was ihr unternehmen werdet
During this hands on experience you'll be taking a peek behind the scenes of Abbey Gardens Pony Powered Learning Experience (APPLE). You'll have a chance to get up close and personal with the Abbey Gardens ponies during one of their twice weekly training sessions. You will work with me and two or three local volunteers to catch, groom and prepare the ponies for the session. Equine psychology and behaviour and it's relationship to human behaviour will be explored while you learn and practice some fundamentals of equine training. During the training session you will get to see Abbey Gardens in a way that regular visitors never do ... through the eyes of a pony! Make sure you wear sturdy closed-toe footwear and comfortable work clothes because this experience is all about active involvement.
