The Miniature Pony centre is every child’s dream. Home to a seriously adorable collection of friendly miniature ponies, this Newton Abbot attraction enables its visitors to get hands on with its tiny residents. Children can enjoy pony rides, take part in pony care experiences and the whole family can just take some time out in the fresh air and make the most of the peaceful setting.
The pony centre is home to miniature ponies, miniature donkeys, heavy horses and birds, so there’s plenty to see and it’s great fun for all ages. April and May are always exciting months at the centre as there are often new babies to welcome, so if you time your visit for this time of year you may well get to see the new arrivals.
The staff at the centre know that a visit is a great opportunity to learn more about the animals that call it home, and there are regular talks and demonstrations held to fill visitors in on everything they need to know about the pasts, personalities and lives of the animals. There are also dressage performances to watch, and if you don’t fancy anything too strenuous there are some beautiful grounds and walks to wander.
