Welcome to the best unaccompanied teenage riding holiday any where, both new riders and those who have been before, in our 14th year running this popular holiday we have made it even better, with added features and longer. See our facebook and tripadvisor reviews to see how great it is.
Below are Some of the things to experience during your holiday.
Arrive 3pm on the Sunday
See your parents safely off, after reassuring them that you have a bed and somewhere to wash and that you ARE going to miss them, but they can ring any time!
We will have a chat about what you want out of your holiday.
After a safety talk you will be shown how to groom and tack up ready to ride. There will be staff to help you if you are new to these tasks. You will have an assessment lesson with our BHS-IT qualified instructor, in order that you are best matched with your mount and get the best out of the holiday. You can have the same pony or ride several different mounts.
On Monday, in suitable groups you will have a jumping lesson, catering for all levels to help you get the best out of your holiday.
You will also go for a hack to see the surrounding countryside and get you ready for the trail ride.
Mid- week you will set out on the 2-day trail ride, when everyone is ready and prepared with packed lunches in their saddle bags, you set off one the first day. You will explore the superb landscape, through woodlands and over moors with experienced leaders.
When you arrive at camp you will enjoy some of the best scenery the area has.
Enjoy a BBQ whilst sitting watching your trusty steed who has worked hard for you that day graze and rest ready for the next day’s adventure. After around the campfire you can enjoy eating marshmallows whilst exchanging stories.
By the end of the trail ride, not only will you have explored some of Wales’s most undiscovered countryside, but you would also have experienced how to ride over some of Wales’s tricky terrain thanks to your sure-footed horse. Arrive back at the farm, and perhaps relax in the hot-tub to ease tired but happy muscles.
Activities on other days include, getting into teams to play an exciting and noisy game of horse ball, and a mounted treasure hunt. This will test your map reading skills! . . .
The final day is an opportunity to put everything you have learnt into practice. This will include bathing and plaiting up your new four-legged friend for a tack and turnout class, and an equitation class to show how your skills have improved, working together to win yourself a rosette! Finishing with fun team gymkhana games
Day 7. For those on the 6-night holiday, there will be a chance for extra hacking/lessons on Friday, as well as tack and turn out.
With Equitation and gymkhana games on Saturday morning for parents to watch, finishing at midday.
