Get the kids outdoors for a fun adventure day out on this cowboy-inspired horse riding experience for two. Join Boston, Tilly and friends on a Wild West experience, perfect for would-be cowboys and cowgirls. Participants will get to ride a pony for up to one hour in a Western-style beginner's lesson and take home a cowkid certificate afterwards. The kids can also try their hand at lassoing cow-horns to build up an appetite, then tuck into a tasty ranch burger meal including burgers and beans. When the budding cowkids arrive at The Burley Villa School of Riding, they will have a safety briefing and each one is given a cowboy hat before moving on to meet the ponies! Unleash their equestrian streak on this pony riding lesson for kids.
