Welcome to

The Great Little

pony co.

A fun, friendly and professional pony party and events business based in West Berkshire in the South East of England. I am able to travel to you with my ponies providing pony rides and a pony petting corner for children’s birthday parties, fetes, community events and much more!

I also offer pony pamper sessions which give a child a unique opportunity to spend some time 1:1 with the ponies, to groom, pamper and decorate them, learn how to tack up followed by a ride.

I provide ‘Meet the ponies’ sessions with the mini Shetlands, great for schools and pre schools/nurseries and also offer therapeutic pony sessions to care homes and all kinds of care centres.

My daughter had the most wonderful time today for her 3rd birthday, perfect for my pony loving girl. Her smile says it all!

Nikki Rumming

My son Rory was so lucky to have the chance to learn how to ride on Blossom. She is the safest, kindest little pony who never puts a foot wrong. Rachel looks after the ponies and the yard impeccably and it’s such a safe and easy place to have small children and ponies having fun together.

Abigail Wicks

I can’t thank Rachel and her team enough for making my daughters birthday party so extra special! The children absolutely loved meeting the ponies and their magical ride on Blue the unicorn! 🦄
The shoe horse decorating was such a lovely keepsake for all the children too! Rachel was fantastic and so accommodating from my first enquiry right though until after the party!!

Sian Palmer

My son absolutely adored his first riding experience, he didn’t want to leave! Rachel’s ponies are wonderful with children, very relaxed and calm, and the set up put me very much at ease as it felt very safe and quality safety equipment was provided. We will definitely be coming back again. Thank you Rachel!’

Claire Maestri

My kids had an absolutely incredible time riding Rachel’s ponies! The set up was perfect, professional and most importantly safety came first! The ponies were very placid and patient amongst all the excitement and Rachel and Becky were fabulous. Their passion for ponies is totally infectious and my kids can’t wait to ride with them again soon!

Arrabella Gotfried

Kylie is such a sweet and gentle pony. My 10 year old daughter loved the opportunities she had to ride and groom her. Not only did she ride out on hacks, in company and alone, Kylie also took my daughter to her first show and behaved beautifully. A really lovely little pony.

Lucy Parkin

This was my daughters first experience of riding a pony and she was a little nervous but Rachel really put her at ease to ride Elsa and she really enjoyed the whole experience ! Highly recommended !!!!

Carrie Matthews

Lottie met and rode Kylie at a summer fete this year. To say this was her best day ever is an understatement. She was so happy to finally ride a pony. It has been her dream for the last 2 years. Kylie was wonderful with all the children and she was in such safe hands with Rachel leading the way. Lottie cannot wait to ride her again!! Thankyou for her first Experience of riding a pony.

Kat Crompton

My daughters had a pony pamper and ride session and they absolutely loved it. Rachel and Becky were brilliant with the girls and the ponies were so calm and patient. They had lots of fun decorating the ponies and then had a lovely ride.

Amanda Walburn-Green

Rachel and her team put on a brilliant event for our 7-year-old daughter’s birthday party. We had comments from parents afterwards describing the party as the ‘best they’d ever attended’, so it doesn’t get much better than that! We’ll definitely be in contact with Rachel for future events!

Conrad McBride

Where to start... Just incredible. From the 1st moment, enquiring with Rachel about a Pony Party, right through to the finish of the party has been a fab experience. Contact has been great, everything very straight forward and informative in the lead up to the party. Rachel herself, is super approachable and friendly, helpful and even more so in person, especially with the children. The party itself was amazing, the ponies have a wonderful nature and just the cutest. There was plenty to keep twenty 4/5 year olds occupied, and I cannot fault the location at Inkpen. Thank you so much Rachel, we will recommend you far and wide ❤

Hayley Marks

I reached out to Rachel asking if my daughter could come along to see the ponies as she’s been obsessed since about 18 months. It was her 3rd birthday and we celebrated in style! She got to feed, groom, walk and ride the ponies. Rachel is so friendly, great with the kids and great to chat to for us adults! Think this is a fab idea and you’re silly not to try it out. Thanks again Rachel. I’m sure we will see you again soon.

Francesca Barrett

Such a magical Monday we had with Rachel and team - they were so brilliant and patient. A day we’ll never forget… and one the kids now ask for every week!

Sally Rimmer

Hiya Rachel. Aww Bella had the best time. Thankyou again so much! We really had an amazing time. Thanks again for a great day!
