2021 Summer Camp Days
Shetland Pony Club Summer Pony Day Camps provide fun-packed pony days for children from 5 – 12 years old. Children become friends with their very own pony for the day and go for rides in the beautiful meadows. They also learn pony care and to look after the paddocks and tack. We have special activities such as learning natural horsemanship, picnic rides to the river and mini gymkhanas. Watch the video to find out more… Children need to bring a packed lunch and snacks and wear leggings and comfortable layers. With lots of pony packed days of fun, you can join for all 4 days or just for a single day.

Parents are invited to arrive at 3:45 pm for prize giving. Please ensure children are wearing leggings and comfortable layers including a shower-proof jacket, t-shirts with sleeves – no strappy tops, please. Wellies or trainers are needed, dependent on the weather. Riding clothes are not required but do wear them if you have them. We supply riding hats and sun cream (factor 30). Body protectors are not recommended when riding Shetland ponies. We go out in all, but the very worst, of weather.
