Many of you will already know that I have been running horse and pony camps here at Hollins Court Farm.
Camp attendees receive lessons in my arena in any discipline, I am also happy to hop on to help asses or school horses if appropriate as well. We have fun local hacking, plus the option of outings to farms nearby for fun rides with XC challenges as well (This includes riding in the river, riding up the Malvern Hills, flying some hedges).
I am putting together some popular packages but can also tailor-make your visit, depending on whether you would like to come with a group or just come and join the team for a couple days or so.
An average example would be 2 nights and 3 days, about 4 ridden sessions with me of various types plus the ability to hack locally. An outing to a fun ride round a nearby farm would be included (other than transport, potentially at cost).
Outings to other jumping arenas can be arranged but charged at cost.
I will provide meals and have limited accommodation available (more in the future).
In addition to the above, optional extra activities too such as visits to a stud or local castle for those wanting a semi-holiday experience, plus wild swimming if warm enough!
£400 is the all inclusive cost for the list above, Not including booking and travel at cost for certain visits offsite depending on venues.
Of course my yard gives the opportunity to be involved in the running of a professional event yard with the chance to watch my horses work if you wish.
With a relaxed country atmosphere in a stunning location with incredible views to the Malvern Hills, Bredon Hill and the Cotswolds we are equally a great place to simply relax and have a break, or work away from home.
I will be able to offer camps all year round.
Let me know whether you are available week days or weekends and whether you would like a group visit or more of an individual stay.
Yes, I'm afraid we cannot supply horses for camp.
Eventing is the ultimate equestrian challenge. Comprised of dressage, show jumping and cross country, it can be likened to a triathlon, with horses and riders demonstrating a range of skills across the three disciplines. To compete successfully in eventing, combinations must show harmony and rhythm in the dressage, balance and precision in the show jumping and accuracy and bravery in the cross country phase. The combination with the lowest penalty score at the end of the event is the winner. As horses and riders move up the levels, the difficulty and technicality of the phases increases.
We are delighted to say that we have now opened two rooms on Airbnb to make it easier for people to come and stay for horse and pony camps.
