About Senior Camp

Open to all members who are aged 12 and over. Held for the past few years at South of England Showground at Ardingly, and shared with the East Sussex Branch of the Pony Club.

Camp is an exciting opportunity to develop equestrian skills and experience all things horsey with like-minded pony mad friends. Camp involves an action-packed week both on and off their pony/horse with have plenty of opportunities to forge Pony Club friendships.

Ponies are accommodated in permanent stables and are looked after by Campers under the watchful eye of the yard team which is made up of mature Pony Club members. Days are busy with campers receiving four hours equestrian instruction daily, making full use of Ardingly’s three arenas and extensive XC area. Evening activities are fun & informative with team challenges, talks & whole camp experiences.

Accommodation is in the form of small two-bed rooms and a dormitory which sleeps up to ten. Children often decide who to share with once they arrive at camp and discover which ride & team group they are in. All meals are lovingly prepared on site by an army of camp parents under the fabulous guidance of our camp chef & housekeepers.
