Carrington Riding Centre




Posted on 8th February 2017


So to give you plenty of time to organise your summer holidays we are releasing our ‘Sleepover Summer Pony Camp’

Week 1- Monday July 29th- Friday 2nd August
Week 2- Monday Aug 26th- Friday 30th August

We welcome all children between the ages of 7 to 16 (6+7 year olds are welcome to join in the activities from 10am-9pm daily). We cater for children of all standards. We have over 60 horses and ponies here, so you can be sure that you are teamed up with a mount that is suitable for your needs. We’ll teach the beginner from the start, we’ll give confidence to the nervous and we’ll challenge the advanced. Many people come to Carrington Riding Centre on their own, some bring a friend and some come in groups from other riding schools. One thing is for certain, you will meet lots of new friends and have a fantastic time!!

Riding Activities

There will be lots of riding throughout your stay. Everyone will receive tuition to improve their riding skills and there will be plenty of hacking and walk outs in the beautiful countryside that surrounds us. There will also be a number of fun lessons, which will include gymkhana games and cross country in one of our five arenas On the Friday we will have a Mini Show and everyone is encouraged to take part. There are plenty of rosettes to be won in various classes. Parents (and grandparents, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts and friends etc.) are welcome to come and watch the
Mini Show to see how your riding has improved. Although the activities are made as much fun as possible, there is an emphasis on learning. We want you to make the most of your stay and gain all round knowledge of the equestrian world. Our friendly staff all have British Horse Society (B.H.S.) qualifications and you will be supervised in all activities.

Non-Riding Activities

You will learn about looking after your pony through a series of demonstrations and lectures to make your learning as enjoyable as possible. Your holiday co-ordinators will organise a variety of evening activities for you, ranging from a movie night, horse riding at night, building campfires, quizzes, treasure hunts, talent shows, horse treat and cake making and much, much more! Accommodation. We will be sleeping overnight in tents in our brand new lodge with it’s own bathroom, 58″ TV, wifi and air conditioning. The sleepover will be fully supervised by our staff members throughout the night.

You can do a single day or a full week of these fun filled days and nights (optional).
