Posh Pony was founded in 2012 as a suburban oasis. For the country to meet the city, for city people to get their feet on the ground, in the vege crop or in the stirrups. It’s a place of peace, to forget your worries and be present, in the moment.
We are a professional, reliable and well respected company with all required insurance, policies and procedures in place.
We’re very proud to have become an NDIS Registered Provider in 2021.
We also accept NSW Government Active Kids Vouchers for our riding lessons.

Frank Zappa is our loveable thoroughbred at 16hh. He started life as a race horse but was too slow around the track so became a show jumper before graduating to a pleasure horse. And he is such an incredible pleasure horse and so gorgeous to ride! His beautiful nature and handsome looks make him very popular with our clients. His gentle and quiet disposition are perfect for his therapy work. You’re guaranteed to fall in love with Mr Zappa.
Alvin is our cheeky pony. He is a Welsh Section A X Australian Miniature Pony and stands just 10.2hh. He has been part of the Posh Pony family since 2013, visiting children’s hospitals, working from Posh Pony HQ as a therapy pony and giving rides at parties. He has touched the lives of so many people and brought so much joy to everyone he meets, he is just incredible. He’s also sassy and breaks into the house and feed shed often. He just wants to be fed and loved and has so much love to give in return.
Rounding out the Posh Pony family are Scooter & Sky, our beautiful, patient Cavalier King Charles dogs, Prinz our forever cuddly cat, our chickens, all creatively named Chicken as well as our random furry visitors that pop in unannounced.
