Camps for 2021



Camps are held for each age group during the summer holidays for many of our members it is the highlight of their pony club year. Parents are encouraged to stay and help while their children are at Mini Camp (indeed this is required if they are on the lead rein) but for Junior and Senior camps it is a parent-free zone!

All abilities are catered for at each of the camps, and they are great opportunity to for children to get to know other riders of their age, as well other children riding at their level. We encourage all children to go to the camp appropriate to their age however there is some flexibility on age if your child feels they are not yet ready for the next camp, space permitting.

Junior – 16-19 August 2021 at Boomerang Equestrian, Crooked Soley, RG17 0TL

Reminder of the 2021 Vaccination Policy for Equine Flu:

An annual booster is required for all Pony Club events. For Areas, Championships and Camps this must have been given within 6 months of the competition/camp. No horse or pony may compete on the same day as a relevant injection is given or on any of the 6 days following such an injection.

Which Camp is right for my child?
We hope that every member will join us for the summer camps. All camps cater for every level and we intentionally have a big age crossover between camps so your child can choose when they are ready to move to the next camp. As a general rule, children staying for an extra year at the same camp enjoy it more than those moving “up” at the first opportunity so we encourage parents to follow the recommended minimum ages.
Bursaries are available if there is a financial barrier to attending Summer Camp. Contact Alison, Joy or Lisa Heneghan for details.

Booking Summer Camps

Prices for Camps (which will be similar to last year) and booking forms will be available from February (Awards Night). We will endeavour to guarantee space for all children wanting to come to camps.

Ideally the child / pony combination should attend 3 rallies or the Elmwood Big Rally or a camp prep day before camp so that we can ensure that they are in the most suitable ride.


Specialist Camps:

Pre-Season Event Camps- will be returning in 2022

Flu vaccinations

Pony Club Vaccination Rules-2020

Pony Club Camps and many competitions require complete up to date Flu Vaccinations. Even if you have an old pony who has had an annual booster for many years the Flu vaccination Record may not be complete. To be complete the Vaccinations must start with 3 primary injections, this may be at the start or even in the middle of the recorded injections.

Your pony cannot attend camp if there is a discrepancy on his vaccination record so please check it well before camp; atleast 1 in 6 had discrepancies last year all of which could be resolved in time by checking records EARLY.

If the annual booster is late then the process must start again and include all three primary injections.

A horse/pony may compete or go to camp 7 days after the second primary vaccination, it must then receive the third primary to make the record complete there after annual injections.

1st Injection – X

2nd Injection – between 21 and 92 days after the first.

3rd injection – between 150 and 215 days after the second

Annual booster within the 12 months of the third, it must not be after the date of the last injection ie Last injection 03/03/13 next due on or before 03/03/14.
