Area 5 Somerford Camp … two happy campers

After years of attending our own branch camps, this year was to be different.

On the way home from three days at the Area Tetrathlon, we diverted off the M6 to Somerford Park for our first Area 5 Associates camp. We were both a little apprehensive as we didn’t know quite what to expect, but as soon as we arrived and unloaded the horses we soon realised we actually knew many of the others on the camp and it certainly didn’t take long to become friends with everyone else!

As all 34 of us were over 16 we were left to organise ourselves and get on with everything, which made the atmosphere very relaxed and easy.

The riding venue and instructors were world class, including 4* event rider Michael Owen teaching us over the amazing XC training field.

When we weren’t riding we were watching others or just chilling in the stables. We had a system where we helped each other with feeding, mucking out etc. so everyone got to their rides on time, even with the early starts!

The food was great and the evening entertainment was always hilarious – especially Meg’s Mucky games.

We would definitely recommend it and can’t wait to go again next year. Thank you Debbie Miller & Team for organising such a great experience for the older riders.
