Pony Camp
How Campers spend the day:

Every morning campers are divided into groups according to riding experience and age. If campers have come along with friends, we of course try to keep them together whenever possible. The morning session includes a one hour lesson with a qualified instructors and stable management. The afternoon session also covers stable management and an exciting one hour ride into the forestry of the Dublin Mountain. Campers are under supervision by staff at all times. Please find further details below.

Lesson;

Lessons are super fun but yet campers are learning to ride with a fully qualified instructors. Riders are matched to ponies of suitable standard and size. Campers may give requests to certain ponies and staff will endeavor to make this happen. Lessons are catered for the varying standards of the group. For beginner lessons, campers will learn to control they're ponies, safety, trotting and and introduction to jumping. For more advance riders, the group will learn more technical riding on both flat and jump in a fun and relaxed but safe environment. All lessons will have the opportunity to play some pony games.

 

Stable Management;

Through the morning and afternoon, campers will doing stable management. Stable management is an opportunity for campers to familiarize themselves with horses and ponies in a safe environment and to learn all about them and caring for them. Stable management can be so much fun. The stable management is adapted to the standard and age of the group. Some topics covered are;

                            Fun with ponies                                   Horse Sense                                                            

                            Grooming                                             Day to day Care

                            Feeding                                                Hoof Care and Shoeing

                            Tack & Saddlery                                    Horse Health

                            Basic First Aid                                       Plus many more...

 

Walkout / Ride out;

Campers doing the full day will be riding into the mountain in the afternoon. It is amazing up there. The campers of novice standard do a walkout were there are helpers walking alongside and holding the riders and ponies. They trek up and down through forest and telling stories of what they've seen and heard, singing songs, playing games and having so much fun. But yet learning about balance and control of the ponies. For riders of more experience, they do a ride out so they can do some trotting, cantering maybe even galloping!! On both ride outs and walk outs, campers are accompanied with instructors.

 

What do bring;

We have hats and boots that the campers can borrow. Should they wish to bring there own, wellies are ideal or any boot/shoe with a flat sole and definite small heel. No runners please.

Rider are more than welcome to bring along they're own equipment. A member of staff may check equipment to make sure it is up to the latest safety standards.

Comfortable clothes can be worn, such as leggings, fitted jeans, tracksuits bottoms (not too baggy) or jodhpurs. Warm clothing is a most during the winter and spring months. Every camper should bring along a rain jacket and rain trousers if possible. We recommend that campers also bring along a change of clothes. During summer months, you might want to pack some sun screen.

Campers should bring along a full packed lunch. They are offered to have a snack around 11am and lunch is at 1pm. Food is not supplied by the Paddocks. A drink also is essential. Horse riding can be thirsty work. Lunch is had in the box room where there is a fire lite on those raining, cold days. Children are supervised at all times during lunch.

Any medication should be reported and given to a member of staff and details of same with instructions should be written and signed by guardian.
