Pony Camps @Balcultry

Due to the Pandemic Coivd 19. We are not taking kids, for Lessons or Camps. We can only take, experienced horse riders or horse owners for lessons. Apologies.  

We are running Online Zoom Classes, for Pony Care! Ages from 8 – 14. please contact us for more information. 

We have two Camps, Pony Pals for beginners and a Camp for Senior Riders. 

Pony Pals, Pony camps are run from 10am to 1.30pm. Pony Pals Kids from 6 to 12 years. No experience necessary. The young campers will be part of our mounted games on ponies, a stable management lecture and will have fun caring for the ponies including feeding, mucking out, grooming etc.  Learning what’s involved in owning their own horse and the responsibilities of caring for the animals.

Mounted Games; Children are put into small groups. They share a Pony, on their team, and take a turn to be mounted, to do activities, like post a letter, moving cones to posts, etc. While their other team mates, have games to do on foot. They learn to mount and ride the pony through obstacles, preform tasks, and dismount safely.

They are mounted for about 20 minutes each, per games, the kids can be at different levels. Horse riding lessons are available outside of camp and during School term.

(The Children are not all mounted, at the same time, at this jr. level)  See pictures below


Senior Camps are for older more experienced kids, that can rider independently and, have had lessons, with us, within the past 3 months. They will ride twice a day, have management lessons and take part in fun games/competitions.  

Each camp is divided into levels of ability where we try to keep those of a similar standard together. We recommend that everyone brings suitable clothing, warm clothing (long trousers, and boots with a heal) Long hair tied back and no jewellery. A large pack lunch and plenty of drinks to keep them going.
