This will be a tented camp or members can sleep in horseboxes.  Parents are welcome to sleep in if they wish.   Ponies will either be penned on grass with electric fencing or can be taken home each evening

Summer Camp will be for the full 4 days’ residential camp for members age 11 and over on the 1st Jan.  Pm Sunday 24th July – pm Thursday 28th July

Junior Camp is for members aged 10 and under on the 1st Jan. This will be a two day camp Monday and Tuesday  and can be residential with parents staying in or children and ponies can be taken home each evening and brought back in the morning . .

Costs are approximate at the moment as this is such a new venture for us. 

There will be a joint event for all members on the Thursday afternoon which parents can attend.

We are well underway thinking of new ideas for camp but would really appreciate your ideas too – what activities would you like to do at camp. Is there an activity you’ve always wanted to have a go at but never had the opportunity – let us know and we can see if it can be incorporated into camp. Maybe you’d like to try Carriage driving, lunging, vaulting, polo. What about the non-horsey activities – shooting, swimming, segways, den building. Would you like a demo/talk from a Vet, Farrier, Dentist? Have a think, talk to each other and let us know your ideas, we’re sure they’ll

be great!

For all camps there will be at least two opportunities per day to ride, practical demonstrations, stable management and above all lots of fun.

Whilst we encourage members to be independent at camp we appreciate that some members will need help and therefore we ask that parents volunteer on a rota basis to help with all children at camp, this might be assisting with tacking up, preparing meals or that all important job – poo picking!!

Once we have an idea of numbers we will hold a Camp Meeting to complete forms, check T-shirt sizes and give your further information about each camp. If you have any questions in the meantime, please ring Alice on 481510 or email
