School Holiday Riding Camps
Our kids’ horse riding holiday camps run from 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday, during the school holidays. Children can come for one day, a few days or for the whole week.
In small, supervised groups, children learn how to groom and care for horses, including feeding, mucking out, tacking up, untacking. They also learn about horse behaviour and anatomy. Each day includes a group horse riding lesson plus Centennial Park horse riding. Where needed, horse riding lessons are graded, so that children ride with others of similar ability.
Children also practise riding our electronic and mechanical horses (riding simulators), which are a very popular part of our kids’ holiday camps. However, nothing beats the relationships children make with the real horses and ponies as well as with other children and staff during their time at our kids’ riding camps!
Camps are $225 per day; $600 for 3 days; $750 for 4 days; $900 for 5 days.
Our 2018 camps are sold out. Our next available camps are:
7 – 11 January 2019
14 – 18 January 2019
21- 25 January 2019
Stable Days in October and December, 2018
For children ten years old and over, we have Stable Days available in the October and December school holidays. Stable Days involve shadowing one of our grooms for a day. Children can see how we prepare feeds, groom, tack up, muck out, treat illnesses, wash and exercise the horses. They can learn what we do and practice some activities themselves. School holiday Stable Days run from 9am to 4pm ($120). You can also add a ride ($60) or a lesson ($85) to the day. We take a maximum of two Stable Day bookings per day.
We will run a camp for groups of up to eight children on public holidays or pupil free days (or on days when we don’t have other camps running). Private camps are $1800 per day which runs from 9am to 4pm.
