Pony Camps are, to children and adults alike, an important part of
learning to ride consisting mainly of riding and stable management(the care of horses). Participants are allowed to help with the
day to day running of the yard, under supervision, and are
allocated their own horse or pony for the duration of the camp.
This intensive period of horsemanship is found to bring the riders
on, improving confidence and riding ability. It is most important
for riders to be able to understand the horse and how it needs to
be kept and handled.
Pony Camps are held during main school holidays for children and
at weekends for adults. Residential and non-residential camps are
available and children can stay in purpose built dormitories under
the supervision of the instructor or the McMillan family. All
meals are provided and in the evening entertainments such as
visits to the swimming pool and cinema are organised.
