Camp

For those from the age of 2 1/2 – 8 years

27th – 29th July 2020, daily from 10.30am – 2.30pm

Mini Camp will be moving to Hoes Farm in Shipley in 2020.  We are very lucky to have been invited to run camp at the family farm of Sophia Burrell,  and are looking forward to a lovely new venue.

A typical day involves preparing your pony for the day and meeting with your instructor. This will be followed by a ridden activity in both the morning and the afternoon. Each session is different, and will include games, flatwork, jumping, cross country, treasure hunts and hacking out in the beautiful countryside. Campers are asked to bring their own picnic and in the lunch break children often work towards an Achievement badge or watch a demonstration. Past years demonstrations have included side saddle and gun dogs.

The day finishes with a swim in the beautiful outdoor pool and an ice cream and normally comes to a close at around 4pm.

Parental supervision is required for younger members and for swimming sessions.
