Course Notes

Summer Pony Camp is five full days of fantastic horsey fun catering for all abilities from new to experienced riders. Each day, riders will have two riding sessions working to improve elements of their riding and prepare for our fun shows and competitions which are held in the afternoon. You will have the opportunity to win ribbons and rosettes to take home with you!

Riders are grouped according to ability and you will learn new topics each day with hands on activities including grooming, tacking up and bathing your horse. Prizes will be awarded to the best in each stable management topic.

With ten riding lessons over five days, the week is progressive and provides a good opportunity for riders to improve both ability and confidence. This course is a horse lover's dream as riders will spend the entire week immersed in ponies and riding!

As the week progresses, riders will have a showing show, mounted games, dressage and show jumping competitions which will accommodate both beginners and experienced riders. This course is great fun and requires participants to be prepared to have lots of hands on experience with horses every day.
