Riding Camp for Adults

Riding Camp for Adults

Thursday, 15 February - Saturday, 17 February 24

Stonar is pleased to launch our new Riding Camp for Adults, a bespoke programme offering novice to advanced riders the opportunity to gain in depth riding experience and confidence building skills.

Riders will enjoy the opportunity to stay and ride at our co-educational boarding school set on a beautiful, rural 80-acre campus in Wiltshire. Stonar is home to the UK’s finest riding academy, with a world-class, onsite, British Horse Society approved Equestrian Centre offering an immersive experience for the riders.

Stonar’s Equestrian Centre is led by Director of Riding, Ellie Halsey. Ellie leads a team of experienced BHS-qualified coaches who are passionate about supporting riders, not only in their riding lessons, but in learning to deliver a high standard of horse-care and broadening their knowledge in all areas.

Riders are asked to arrive with their own horses on Friday lunchtime, ready for lessons to begin in the afternoon. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a loan horse for this camp.

Camp fee: £425

The camp includes:

  • Four riding sessions with a BHS qualified instructor, including an afternoon lesson and demonstration with our special guest, 5 Star event rider, Georgie Goss (nee Spence)

  • An Introduction to Massage for your Horse Workshop with local Veterinary Physiotherapist, Wendy Vaughan

  • Horse First Aid Workshop with a qualified vet

  • Full board in one of our boarding houses

  • Stabling, hay and water for your horse*

    *all horses must be up-to-date with their vaccinations and have received an Equine Flu Booster within the last 6 months, and more than 7 days prior to the camp.


Please email and a member of the Short Courses Team will be happy to assist you.

The Programme

The camp starts on Thursday afternoon, with riders arriving between 12.00pm-1.00pm to allow time to settle your horse, have a tour of the site and meet your instructor for the weekend.

SampLe Daily Schedule


Stonar is widely known as the best equestrian school in the UK. If a pupil doesn't have their own horse, they can borrow one from the school's sizeable pack and join in the fun. There are myriad ways to have a good time: pupils can practise dressage steps in the Olympic sized outdoor arena, channel Pippa Funnell around the cross-country course, and master the art of mucking out in the 65 stables.
