For kids

 
Keep pony mad girls occupied
Mad4Ponies has got lots of fun games & activities for pony mad girls & boys, from model ponies such as the Breyer. 

We used to have Julip horses as kids, and they kept us occupied for hours with our own gymkhanas, riding lessons for the horses, making up stories about them, taking them off on rides around the house and garden - good for the imagination and just tons of fun. 

If you're having a half term party or a sleepoverMad4Ponies have everything you need to make it a neighing success for pony mad girls - Thelwell invitations, pony table decorations and party packs - the lot. Just order on line, let the goods arrive and sit back with a glass of something chilled while the pony mad girls play.
