Pony Camps at Balcultry Stables

Pony Camps at Balcultry Stables

[supsystic-gallery id=10 position=center]

During the School Holidays we run Pony camps.  These camps offer kids and teens the opportunity to spend time with and around horses and ponies learning how to care for and ride ponies. We also run Adult camps too, so you too can join in on the fun (dates to be confirmed).

The Program
Pony camps are run from 10.30 am to 3pm. The campers will receive a horse riding lesson/mounted games, a stable management lecture and will have fun caring for the ponies including feeding, mucking out, grooming etc. Ribbons will be presented at the end of the Camp.

Kids from 5 to 14 years. No experience necessary.

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, (long trousers, and boots with a heal)  and a snack, drink, sandwiches to keep them going.
