Summer Riding Camps (4 or 5 Days)
Available for either 4 or 5 days, our summer riding camps are for children of all abilities with girls and boys divided into appropriate level groups.
Pitch your tent with the rest of the campers on the day before and look forward to your summer camp full of fun! If your children prefer not to be under canvas, accommodation is available in one of our luxury holiday cottages on site.
You will be paired with a horse or pony at the start of your week and will stay paired with that pony throughout your camp. You will ride for at least two hours each day with a variety of hacks, dressage and show jumping, wearing the correct safety gear and supervised at all times.
Additional learning is delivered via a series of practical and theoretical work where you will understand the daily routines ponies need in their lives, from mucking out, feeding, picking out hooves, grooming, tacking up, rugs, catching / turning out, etc. Other talks will explore the different aspects of ponies in general – points of the pony, colours, bones, breeds, etc. All of these activities can work towards our in-house certificates, that will be awarded at the end of the camp.
Your summer camp will also include team games, such as pony club games, orienteering across our 40-acre site and trips to Monkey Haven and Butterfly World. All children will be provided with breakfast, lunch and dinner from our onsite rider’s café.
