Children have enjoyed taking part in Stonar's Easter Residential Riding Camps over the past two weeks, where they have had the opportunity to stay and ride at the school.
During each week-long Riding Camp, riders aged between 9 and 16, were able to make the most of Stonar's 80-acre rural campus and its world-class, onsite Equestrian Centre, all while having fun and making friends, of course!
Although the weather wasn't the finest for the first Camp, riders still managed to enjoy riding lessons, hacking out and learning all about aspects of horse management. The second Riding Camp was blessed with better weather, which made for a different (and rather more sunny!) hacking out experience for those in attendance.
During the evenings, children took part in a variety of activities including making their own paper mache lanterns and stable door signs; horse-themed quizzes; indoor board games; and more.
Debbie Flower, Director of Short Courses at Stonar, said "The last two weeks have been great fun and it's been fantastic to see all the children attending get stuck in and really making the most of their time here at Stonar. It's always wonderful to see them becoming fast friends and bonding over their shared love of horse riding.
"Our Residential Riding Camps not only give riders the chance to spend their days on horseback, but also the opportunity to learn how to deliver a high standard of horse care. Our experienced coaches help riders to broaden their knowledge in all areas of horse and stable management, and the children definitely come away more confident in these areas."
Stonar's Residential Riding Camp is a bespoke programme, offering beginner through to advanced riders the opportunity to gain hands-on, in-depth daily stable and riding experience. Find out more here: www.stonarschool.com/short-courses/residential-riding-camps.
