We currently have completed two weeks of our summer riding camps with over 45 riders attending from all over the UK as well as international riders from America, Dubai, Spain, Italy and Switzerland.
The first week saw the organisers and instructors adapt the programme to take in to account the extreme hot weather we were experiencing by starting the day extra early before it got too hot and running activities to help keep the riders and horses cool, such as making horse ice lollies, having a game of water balloon Dodge Ball and setting up dressage arenas in the cool sports hall for everyone to practice their test for the end of the week (on foot of course). Luckily temperatures began to cool by mid-week, which allowed some extra riding to be fitted in to make up for lost time.
The nice, cooler weather continued in to the second week making it perfect for riding. The children's days were filled at the Equestrian Centre which included riding and stable management tuition, designing and building show jumping courses and finishing the week with dressage tests and an afternoon show and tea which parents are invited to. Their evenings included activities such as bath bomb making (which they all got to take home at the end of the week), tennis, swimming and a movie night to round off each day.
We are looking forward to hosting another two weeks of camp next week and welcoming children of all ages once again.
