Our annual residential camp this year runs from Monday the 14th to Saturday the 19th of August, with the show and BBQ being held on the final day. Participants are given the chance to try a variety of equestrian disciplines. Each day of camp focuses on a different discipline, such as dressage, show jumping or cross country.
Participants are encouraged to take as much responsibility for their pony as they can, with staff members overseeing and encouraging them to prepare their pony for riding. Riders are split into similar ability groups. Once all the ponies needs are taken care of for the day, participants spend the evenings taking part in organised games and a chance to enjoy marshmallows toasted on the camp fire. If the weather is inclement, we have a large indoor lounges, where games can take place.
Children will need to bring their own tent, sleeping bag and airbed. However we do encourage them to share a tent with their friends.
This year we will again be holding a cross country day. Riders at a suitable level will be invited to attend an off site training day at Rose Hill Cross Country Course. For those riders who have not yet reached that level of ability, we will be holding an on site mini cross country day with our purpose built course.
The Rose Hill training day will be at an additional cost, this will include transportation of both rider and pony to and from Rose Hill, course hire, a 2 hour coaching session and packed lunch.
All meals are included in the price, however there are additional snack, sweets and drinks available from the on site cafe at an additional cost.
Participants must be over the age of 10 years old, be able to walk and trot independently and be a member of Echos Equestrian Centre’s Pony Club, an owner or sharer at Echos Equestrian Centre.
Camp costs £360.00 Optional Rose Hill training day – £40.00
There will be a parents meeting at 5.30pm on Saturday the 15th of July to organise sleeping arrangements, kit list, menus and required permission forms. You will be required to bring your child’s riding hat and tack to be checked by a member of staff.
