Junior Jockeys Pony Camp

Junior Jockeys Pony Camp

10:00am – 4:00pm each day

£250 (payment required on booking)

A fantastic action packed week aimed at children 8 years and over. This week will enable children to do all things equestrian in a fun yet controlled environment and allow children to gain knowledge and confidence with both riding and stable management activities. It’s just like going on a Residential Pony Camp but without the overnight stay. Lunch included too!
 
Typical activities may include:
  • Pony care sessions, including mucking out, haying, watering and feeding the ponies, including learning about the different types of feed and hay.
  • Grooming sessions, including learning how to brush ponies, pick out hooves safely and tie them up correctly.
  • Pony dress up sessions, including using feather boas, flowers, bows, clips, plaits and special glitter hoof paint, which may include a little competition.
  • Junior pony and rider first aid sessions, including bandaging lessons and role play.
  • Field management sessions, including poo picking, bringing in and turning out ponies, learning about dangerous plants and hazards.
  • Learning all about rugs and boots and how to correctly put them on the ponies.
  • Tack sessions, including points of the tack, tack cleaning and how to tack up the ponies correctly.
  • Mini in-hand show competition.
  • Riding each day including a fun gymkhana, mini hacks either in the Hartwell fields or down the country lane and riding lessons in varied disciplines including dressage and jumping, all levels of riding catered to.
  • Fun quizzes, colouring, arts and crafts.
  • And much, much more!!
