Junior Equestrians 2020

Junior Equestrians

Learn all that you need to know for show day!

This camp is for riders aged 8 to 13 years who are interested in either getting into competitive riding or improving their riding level. Riders will receive one hour of English riding instruction each day and experience grooming and tacking.

Campers will learn to look after their equine teammate throughout the week, ensuring that they are taken care of in the barn and in the riding ring. At the start of each session riders will set their goals for the week and will also have the opportunity to learn about feed and nutrition, veterinary needs, training and conditioning and getting their horse or pony ready for show day. By the end of the session riders will have developed a special bond with their mount, one they will surely remember for years to come.
