Camp week is July 1st – 5th at the amazing venue of Barnadown. All members wishing to attend need to be members and be fully paid up for camp. N.B All ponies must have up to date vaccinations so now is the time to check. Any horse or pony without this will be refused entry. Camp is an intense week for both pony and rider with at at least 2 if not 3 lessons per day, therefore in the interest of kindness to our animals all ponies and horses attending should be in healthy condition, teeth, weight, feet should be paired or properly shod and ideally fit for the week that’s in it. If you wish to swap ponies during the week, the passport and condition of the new pony must be assessed before entry to the stables.

This club is a voluntary organisation and as a result, we will be looking for parents to volunteer and assist during camp and for activities during the year. The club cannot exist without you and is here purely for the members/our children. We truly appreciate all the help we receive and if you would like to offer your support for camp or to help in the running of the club please contact the PC phone, THANK YOU.

And finally… We look forward to hosting another fun filled and exciting camp in July.
