It is known that humans started to rely on horses as a means of transportation as far back as around 4500 BC. Long before the arrival of gasoline-powered vehicles, horses were used for transportation, for work or for pleasure.
In the olden days, many kids learned to ride on horses at an early age, but today pony rides are mostly for fun and pleasure. According to May (London) Mack's recollections of her growing up on the London Farm, her sister Lucy "rode the Shetland pony" and so, Pony Ride is truly part of the London family heritage.
Kids both in age and at heart will surely love interacting with ponies and getting to experience pony riding in a safe and fun environment.
