Residential Camps

Our annual residential camps this year runs from Monday the 1st to Friday the 5th for Juniors and Monday the 8th to Friday the 12th for Seniors, with the Cross Country and BBQ being held on the Thursday of each week.

Participants are given the chance to try a variety of equestrian disciplines. Each day of camp focuses on a different one, 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 areas, 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.

Each year we hold a cross country day on the Thursday of camp. All riders regardless of riding ability are invited to take part on our purpose built course. Parents are invited to come and watch, meet the instructors and enjoy the BBQ.

The final day of camp all participants get to go out on a hack, before returning and taking camp down. Camp normally ends with a water fight.

Camp costs £360.00
