Our Shetland ponies are an important part of our animal-based pedagogy.

The ponies are groomed, cared for and ridden by our children on a pony farm in Ratingen-Lintorf that has been rented especially for Papillon. In small groups take a trip to the pony stable every week.

Our ponies take on an educational role, because the children learn to take responsibility in a playful way by caring for the stable, grooming and feeding the ponies. Riding the ponies is a great experience for the kids. They learn to deal with new challenges, perhaps even to overcome fears and to improve their body awareness and concentration.

Unique, empathetic, animal lovers

When riding, the children are always looked after by a well-trained riding instructor.

They exercise in the fresh air, but also discover and explore the natural environment around the pony stable.
