Riding Camps are available to all levels and aimed at people interested in horse riding and horse care. The camps are effectively training courses that are broken down into modules. Each module consists of riding lessons and hands on training in horse grooming horse care and stable management. lt also includes teaching using DVD presentations. All participants are provided with a souvenir of the Riding Camp. Typical users of these camps are national and secondary schools, foreign student groups, organisations caring for people with special needs, and children’s birthday parties.  They are catered for children from 6+ and are a great way to make friends while also learning the basics of horse/pony care. No experience is necessary as all children will be broken into groups that suit their experience. As we have a new indoor arena weather is not a problem.  Camps run at Easter, Summer, Christmas holidays.
