Monday 17th July – Thursday 20th July – Adults Riding Camp

Adults/Over 18’s Riding Camp, this can be residential, i.e. bring your own tent and camp out in the elements. However, those used to the finer things in life or living locally may just want to sleep at home in their own beds or alternatively if you live further afield you can stay in a local hostelry. Camp runs from Monday through to Thursday and is open to Adults/Over 18’s only. The cost for the Camp is £240.00 and deposits of £50.00 are required to put your name down. The reminder can be paid by instalments if you so wish. All monies must be in by 1st July 2017. 

During Camp you will be allocated a horse (if you don’t already have one) and you will be in charge of this horses’ care during your camp. This will include grooming, mucking out, poo picking, feeding, watering, tack cleaning, plaiting and all things horsey! We will cover various areas of equitation, dressage, show jumping, cross country, games, jousting, barrel racing, hacking – the possibilities are endless! The emphasis of this Camp is having fun and pushing yourselves.

Three fun filled days of riding ponies and learning how to care for them.

Camp will start at 9am on Wednesday 26th and finish on the Wednesday & Thursday nights at 5.00pm. On Friday camp will begin at 9am as usual but end at approximately 4.30pm.

Staff will group children by riding ability and the children will be allocated a pony on day one - they will then have to take care of that pony for the rest of camp, be it mucking out, grooming, cleaning tack etc. There will be riding instruction each day, whether it is flat work, jumping or even some games and hopefully parents will notice improvements.  

Campers are expected to do what is asked of them by staff and to be well behaved at all times. Please ensure that your child has a good nights’ sleep each night to allow them to do their best.

The kit list: - Jodhpurs, white long sleeved shirts (no bare arms) and a tie for Tack and Turnout, boots, riding hat, coat and gloves are absolute must haves. Please allow for wet or sunny weather by sending waterproofs, sun cream and a sun hat! Please name all belongings!! 

On the Friday afternoon beginning at 3pm, parents are invited to come along and see what their children have learnt during camp and also witness a short performance by their children, after which you may take them home.

Children should be off the lead rein and confident and capable at walk and trot. Mini Camp 2017 will cost £215.00 which is payable in full by 1/7/17. Spaces are limited so please book in and pay a deposit of £50.00 if you are coming, parents may then pay in instalments to spread the cost once the deposit is paid.
