Easter Holiday Fun!

Get your wellies on and come down to the stables this Easter for lots of fun in the fresh air!   
We’ve Pony & Activities Camp and an Easter Egg Trail which are ideal for children who are new to horse riding as well as children who have ridden before.  We also have two Riding Camps and a range of hacks exclusively for our existing, graded clients.  Please note when booking that we do have a 12-stone weight limit for horse riding. 

Activities for everyone:

Pony & Activities Camp

9.30 am – 3.30 pm | Age: 5 – 12 years | £50 per day or £180 for 4 days

Join us for a Holiday Club with a difference! 

Children will have a full, fun-packed day at the Equestrian Centre – with a range of activities to get them active and making friends, including den building, crafting activities and team games.  They’ll also be getting very hands-on with our friendly ponies, learning about grooming, feeding and mucking out, as well as enjoying a pony ride and decorating the ponies with chalks and accessories! 
A 10% discount applies when booking 4 days for the same child.

Easter Egg Trail

Good Friday, 7 April:  Available time slots between 10.00 am and 3.15 pm
Age 3 – 12 years | £32 per child 

Join our ponies for a special Easter Egg ride!

Children will have lots of fun riding their pony around our tricky Easter trail, gathering Easter eggs.  They’ll each receive an easter-themed (chocolate) gift to take home with them when they’ve completed the ride.  

There will also be hot drinks available to purchase on the day, in aid of the Ride High charity, so we hope you’ll bring some change with you and support this good cause! Children must be accompanied by an adult whilst on site and should only bring a maximum of 2 adults to accompany them for this experience. 

Booking slots are available at 45 minute intervals with a maximum number of 8 riders per slot.

Activities for current, graded riders:
(All activities can be booked via ECPro)

3-Day Riding Camp (Beginners) – L2 – L3 (indoor) riders – existing clients only
3-Day Riding Camp (Improvers) – L3 (outdoor) and over – existing clients only

Tuesday 4 – Thursday 6 April | 9.30 am – 3.30 pm | £250

This Easter our current, graded clients can join us for 3-days of pony-fuelled fun! 

We’ll be riding twice every day and parents will be invited to view the final ridden session on the Thursday afternoon.  Out of the saddle, riders will be immersed in the yard’s activities, improving their knowledge of horse-care, whilst helping to look after the horses and ponies. 

Children should bring a packed lunch, their riding equipment and a coat each day. 
Improvers should bring a body protector to camp sessions as we may be jumping!

This activity is only open to our current graded riders and as numbers for both camps are limited, we advise booking early to avoid disappointment! 

It is not possible to book single days at Riding Camp.
