About our camps
The camps are run at our farm where you can enjoy riding in the all weather sand arena, hacking over the farm and exploring the cross-country course. This is an intensive five days of horses!! It is great fun, a real confidence boost and a positive environment where there is the opportunity to form new friendships with other riders, horses and instructors!
You have the option of bringing your own horse or using one of ours. We will match you with a suitable horse or pony depending on your size and ability. All equipment (tack) will be supplied if needed.
You will be taught about caring for the horse and how to improve your overall awareness of, and relationship with, the horse.
We offer dressage, show jumping, show hunter and cross country specific instruction from our qualified instructors.
For our younger riders we focus on gaining confidence through games and farm riding.
We require that you fill out the camp registration form online here with your parents or guardians contact details (if applicable), any health and safety information we should know about and our rules that you must read and understand.

Niamh very much enjoyed the camp in the holidays. She took Simon cross country schooling on Saturday and confidently jumped some pretraining jumps.
It was awesome. Thank you so much.
