> MAY 2018


> ADULT RIDER EMPOWERMENT CAMP

Scheduled for 5th & 6th May 2018.

Objective: To support and encourage adult horse riders (age approx 21 and over) who show enthusiasm to advance their horse knowledge, management, safety and riding skills, incorporated with fun and interesting personal development discussions and exercises, to lead towards improved overall confidence with horses and self empowerment. Horses can teach us so much about ourselves and this camp will help give you an insight into this!

This very unique and intensive camp is limited to a maximum of 12 riders and will include group lessons per day (horsemanship groundwork, flatwork and/or jumping) as well as fun unmounted group exercises, daily discussions on a variety of topics, plus either a shared BBQ evening meal or a group dinner at the local pub (to be confirmed closer to time).
Great confidence building and personal discovery camp. Ideal for adults looking to gain confidence with horses from all aspects, whether riding for pleasure and seeking to improve or working towards low level competitions and outings etc, and anyone keen to discover more about their relationship with their horse and spend a fantastic weekend in a positive, supportive environment with like-minded people.

All enquiries welcome.
Bookings for this special camp are taken on a first in first served basis.

- Please contact us prior to booking to confirm there is still a place available.
