Welcome to the best unaccompanied teenage riding holiday any where, both new riders and those who have been before, in our 12th 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 from 2pm on Sunday. Meet your friends for the week, human and animal.
See your parents safely off, after re assuring 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, while having a walk around the farm to meet the horses and other riders.
In the afternoon, after the daily routine of catching grooming and tacking up, you will have an assessment lesson with our qualified instructor Kate, 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 morning you will have a jumping lesson, but if this is too much don't worry you can have a lesson that will help you get the best out of your holiday.
In the afternoon you will go for a hack to see the surrounding countryside and get you ready for the trail ride.
"Including the best trail ride exclusively for Teenagers available in the UK"
Next morning ,when everyone is ready and prepared with packed lunches in their saddle bags, you set off one the first day of the trail ride – you will explore the superb landscape, through woodlands and over moors with experienced leaders
When you arrive to Camp where the views are one of the best the area has to offer, you will un-tack groom and feed your horses. 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. Beware around the camp fire, Dawn loves to talk football and Steve Le Trec, which he competes at when we let him escape!
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 to relax in the hot-tub to ease tired but happy muscles.
The next morning will be relaxing, even if you are not tired, and you will be! the ponies will enjoy a lie in. After a leisurely breakfast you can participate in a game of horse ball or maybe a cycle ride –
Then spend the afternoon a mounted treasure hunt. This will test your map reading skills! . . .
Show –The final day is an opportunity to .put everything you have learnt into practice by bathing and plaiting up your new four legged friend and working together to win yourself a rosette!
We will have talked in the week about what sort of classes you want, but usually have a variety from dressage to bending.
