Schmid´s pony farm
The pony yard for children
At the edge of Friedrichshafen on Lake Constance in the midst of fruit plantations and wonderful nature lies our pony farm.
Of course, everything revolves around the pony... The concept is aimed at children aged 4-10 years. We will do handicrafts, paint, play, sing and children will be introduced to riding in a playful way. With small movement and balance exercises on the pony, the children learn to handle the animals according to their age. A lot of fun and joy is guaranteed!
What do we offer?
- Pony birthday (can be planned individually)
- Holiday games (dates 2019 see homepage)
- Schmid´s Action days (e.g. Pony painting, Ponypicknick etc.)
- Pony Pass
- pony club
Are you looking for an idea for the next children's birthday party? You are missing the right holiday program? You have an important afternoon appointment, but unfortunately no care for the child? Your child loves animals and is looking for his or her first hobby?
We offer solutions for all this - your child is safe with us and meaningfully occupied.
Whether once a year, during school holidays or every week. We offer all sorts of things. For example, we meet weekly in the pony club. We sing, do handicrafts, ride with the ponies and clean them afterwards. On a Saturday of the month, we organize a day of action with excursion, picnic or pony painting. Children can earn their "Pony Pass" with us: In 6 hours we learn step by step everything about the little horses, create a folder which is both a memory and a nice souvenir. Food is also always taken care of. Our holiday programme runs from 08.00 - 12.00 or 14.00 and can also be booked on a daily basis. You can find the dates for the respective year on our homepage.
What distinguishes us from classical riding courses?
With us, there is no obligation, no must and much above all fun. A child at the age of 4-10 years does not have the necessary body development to control a pony. Even if they are little ponies at Schmid´s Ponyhöfle, they have a lot of strength.
The body of the children at this age is in the main growth phase.
Due to the growth, the tissue is particularly irritable. Above all the spinal column is damaged, with too early, genuine riding, since with riding enormous forces affect the body. This can lead to fractures of the growth joint. However, we care a lot about the health of your child and that is why we want to avoid long-term consequences.
Do you still have questions? We are looking forward to your inquiry and will be happy to answer all your questions personally.
