This is a great week of instruction for the children. The ponies are brought to Camp on the Sunday evening . Children arrive bright and breezy on Monday morning at 8.30am . The children are divided into groups of similar ability and are allocated an instructor for the week. The whole day is spent with the ponies where the children are expected to feed, muck out, ride, groom and clean tack . They will ride twice a day and will be brought to different areas of the complex to learn the different discipline. A great week is had by all.
N.B. It is essential for children to get the full benefit of camp and be able to learn and do tasks that parents MUST LEAVE them in the care of the qualified instructors ,also for Health & Safety parents have been requested to drop children off in the morning and to collect them in the evenings. If you have any issue with this matter could you please contact the D.C’s in relation to this matter.
Children who wish to attend Camp must be seen at the pre Camp rallies. This gives an opportunity for the children to get to know one another before coming into camp and also to allow us to see the riding abilities and group them accordingly.
Mini Camp for our younger members is from Wednesday to Friday during main camp . Ponies arrive on Tuesday evening for vetting and stabling.
Any queries regarding camp please ring Miriam.
Passports and vaccinations must be up to date so check these in plenty of time
