The Think Like a Pony Club - Soon Open for Membership

The Think Like a Pony Club will be the first online resource of its kind, made up of e-books, worksheets and video lessons, supported by online horsemanship instructors. This ground-breaking model is set to transform the way children are educated about horsemanship.

Launching internationally in 2020, it will be an educational programme that:

    • everyone can be part of, whether they have access to a pony or not
    • offers a unique approach to horsemanship based around empathy for animals
    • is set to transform the way children aged 8-16 are taught about horses

 

If you would like to be one of the first to hear about the launch of the Think Like a Pony Club, register your interest by emailing sophie@thinklikeapony.co.uk

 

It is perfect for:

  • helping to excel a child's education in horsemanship and riding
  • engaging any child in education and learning through a passion for ponies
  • empowering children who have social, emotional or mental health difficulties



Resources can be used alone or with support from a guardian or instructor. When a student has completed learning around a detailed topic such as understanding the power of body language, developing ridden skill or understanding mammalian anatomy, they are awarded a badge to mark their achievement.


Badges build into awards and for each 6 completed badges, children receive a certificate to mark their achievements. Children have access to their own online Think Like a Pony Instructor who can offer feedback and guidance throughout their horsemanship journey.


Throughout the course children will develop: 

  • Horsemanship skill and ability
  • Confidence 
  • Empathy
  • Analytical thinking
  • Self-awareness
  • Communication skills
  • A strong sense of achievement

In doing so, they will develop leadership skills that will help them in all areas of life.
