BASED AT CASTERTON, SEDBERGH PREPARATORY SCHOOL
Our traditional pony camp offers children the opportunity to experience fun and excitement whist learning and developing their equine skills from BHS accredited coaches. This course is based at the Sedbergh Preparatory School riding facility where our delightful and patient ponies will be your child’s best friend.
Children will be grouped in small numbers and after an assessment period will have a motivational programme designed to help them gain confidence and improve their general riding and horsemanship and depending on experience could include dressage, show jumping and cross-country training, competitive mounted games and leisure rides.
Throughout the course coaches will guide pupils through events and activities culminating in a fun competition based on their experiences and a celebratory tea party and awards ceremony.
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 8-11 year olds on courses based at Sedbergh Preparatory School. This unique opportunity allows children to taste the full boarding experience.
“This course is a great opportunity for pony mad children to make friends and learn new equine skills. The emphasis throughout the week is on having good old-fashioned pony club fun. Childhood memories will be built and lifetime friendships formed. An exhausted but happy child on day four is guaranteed!”

“Sally and her helpers were excellent and worked extremely hard to make sure everyone was catered for. This was not easy with different standards, new children and horses. “
“My Daughter’s confidence has come on enormously and she has had the perfect taster of different disciplines. She couldn’t wait to attend every day. “
