Over Summer the Pony Club Centre at Sedbergh Prep School will once again play host to the amazing Pony Camp, led by the inspirational Diane Hull.

After a brief assessment the children will then be led on a fun filled adventure where they will take part in stable and tack management, dressage, show jumping and all-round pony care. The course offers the opportunity to bring your own pony or the use of the charismatic resident Prep School ponies. If you wish to bring your own pony, then please contact Sedbergh Courses to discuss further:- Sedberghcourses@sedberghschool.org

Please note as a minimum requirement children need to be able to walk and trot confidently off the lead rein.

The experience doesn’t stop there. With a comprehensive evening programme to further enhance our core values we have introduced a residential option for 8-13 year olds on courses based at Sedbergh Preparatory School. This unique opportunity allows children to taste the full boarding experience.
