Dartmoor Dazzlers are kind, reliable and gentle and will enjoy having fun with their friends and socialising as they begin to be more adventurous. They are inquisitive and will enjoy taking on new challenges and learning more about the world around them.
They will try new things as they learn about how to look after ponies and have a deeper understanding of animal welfare and responsibility. Their riding will progress in leaps and bounds as they begin to discover how much more fun there is to be had with their riding as they explore the outdoors. Dartmoor Dazzlers will also be considerate to those around them and how they can play their part in promoting kindness and respect at the yard and everywhere else.
Dartmoor Dazzlers will work through topics within six themes which can be completed in any order to suit their individual preferences.
Stickers are awarded upon completion of topics. Once a theme is complete an iron-on cloth badge is awarded. When all themes have been achieved the Dartmoor Dazzlers rosette and certificate are awarded.
How to get involved
There are two ways for your child to join in the fun with Pony Stars and begin their adventure.
1. Children can attend a BHS Approved Riding Centre. Your child will make new friends and join in with group activities within our friendly centres. Have the reassurance that all our BHS Approved Riding Centres meet high standards of horse welfare and coaching.
2. If you have your own pony then a BHS Accredited Professional Coach can come to you, you can travel to them or you can set up your own group with friends on your yard or nearby yards and enjoy the activities together. Our Accredited Professional Coaches hold coaching qualifications in addition to regularly attending first aid and safeguarding courses to ensure they can provide safe, high quality delivery for your child.
