HORSES/PONIES: Must be fit enough to cope with 3-4 hours riding under instruction every day. They must be in good health, well shod, (or hooves trimmed if unshod), not under 4 years old or excessively aged. Remember to bring hay for lunchtime and a water bucket. You may also want to bring rugs for protection from flies/weather and cooling off.

TACK: Tack should fit and be in good repair, please check all tack prior to camp, areas such as stitching on stirrup leathers in particular.

INSTRUCTION: Every endeavour will be made to ensure that each child receives substantial instruction and will be placed in groups according to tests and ages. The groups may be reviewed by instructors and organisers, if necessary. Polite requests to the DC or Chief Instructor will be considered but may not be acted upon, please look at the bigger picture before asking.

Please could each member bring some cakes or biscuits on the first day. A cake and a drink will then be available at the end of each day for the members to enjoy after riding.

PARKING: Parking will be on the field please park tidily where you are asked. Please remove all rubbish from site.

PROGRAM: Instruction will begin at 10:30am each day, please be ready on time, it is discourteous to your instructor and the rest of your ride to keep them waiting. Please consult the timetable on the bus to ensure you know where your ride will be. Lunch will be from 12.30 to 1.30pm, and tuition will finish at 3.30pm.

PARENTS AND OTHER VISITORS: are welcome to watch members ride. Please do not “instruct”, cajole or reprimand members while they are under instruction as this is impolite to their instructor, but do please be willing to assist if the instructor needs you. Any non-riding/visiting children must, at all times, be under the direct supervision of the adult(s) bringing them to site.

LUNCHTIME SUPERVISION: We are unable to supervise the members over the lunchtime period. If no parent or guardian is on site please speak to Eileen regarding the arrangements. Please remember that the horses/ponies must also be supervised during this period.

MEDICAL ISSUES: If there is any medical issues that Eileen should be aware of please can you contact her before camp.
