At the Horsley Bookham & Leatherhead RDA we have a number of our wonderful ponies available for sharers. They are all special and unique in their own ways and we have options for a range of riders.


You can meet all of our ponies here.


For all enquiries please email addressing it to Fiona.


Badgers Farm have a fabulous on-site trainer available called Duncan, who would be delighted to fully assess you/your child on your share pony and give a fun lesson to help you/your child get to know your pony.   This is independent of the RDA and we can pass on his details at your initial assessment.

The safety of our riders and ponies welfare is paramount.

All new sharers will be asked for donations of:

£25 a day per ridden session


Lead rein pony - 11.1hh, up to 4 stone, 3’6"

Elvis is the ultimate lead rein pony.  He is great at being pampered, groomed and loved.  Once a rider is on, he is very sensible and knows his job is to look after the little one on board.  He walks, trots and halts on command and would suit a first time or new rider.  Must have experienced parent for support.  Our youngest rider for Elvis is currently 3.5 years.

Lead rein pony - 12.2hh, up to 5 stone, 4’6"

Tom is a very gentle, affectionate pony who has lots of experience as a lead rein pony. He loves being groomed and is a very loving pony who has lots to give.  A good pony for an experienced lead rein to start practicing independent riding.  Loves his lessons and tries really hard. Due to his young age, minimum 6 months regular riding experience and must have experienced parent with pony knowledge for support.

Sharing our ponies

Code of Conduct

At the HB&L RDA we are very lucky to have such amazing ponies and a community of sharers to bring variety and exercise into their overall programme of work. We know that our pony’s primary job is to serve the RDA and help provide therapeutic experiences for our riders both on horse back and on the ground.  Finding ponies with the suitable temperament is incredibly hard, and so we need to ensure our sharers are supporting our ponies overall welfare and continue to enforce their good behaviours, healthy lifestyle and appropriate training. Furthermore, whilst riding you are representing the RDA and the charities work and so it’s important our sharers adhere to the rules of the yard and the local area.


As such, we have a sharers code of conduct to help ensure you support and enhance our ponies.  All existing and new sharers must commit to adhering to this and failure to do so may result in us terminating our agreement.
