For all children who have just completed Yr 3 to members who have just completed Yr 6 at school
Junior – 29th – 31st July 2021, daily from 10am – 4pm
Mini and Junior Camp will be run at a new venue in 2021. We will be moving camp to Hoes Farm in Shipley. We are hugely grateful to Sophia Burrell for allowing us to use her family home between Shipley and Dragons Green. The farm has good facilities including good hacking, cross country, small gallops, and a lovely swimming pool and we are very lucky to have been able to secure this venue after so many years at the family estate of the Greenwoods.
A typical day involves preparing your pony for the day and meeting with your instructor. This will be followed by a ridden activity in both the morning and the afternoon. Each session is different, and will include flatwork, jumping, cross country, gymkhanas and hacking out in the beautiful countryside. Lunch will not be provided this year. On sunny days everyone has the opportunity for a swim in the beautiful outdoor pool. There will also be some free time and the chance to do some badges or watch a demonstration. Past years demonstrations have included side saddle and police dogs in action.
The last day of Junior Camp is likely to be competition day, with Combined Training and clear round or Cross Country.
Unfortunately until we know more about Covid rules for the Summer we are leaving the exact details of what the day to day running of camp will be like, but can assure you the venue has the space and scope for members to have a wonderful few days with their ponies and friends.
Children and Ponies must be smartly turned out.
