2019 SUMMER PONY CAMP

Featured

SPosted on 14th April 2019

This year’s residential pony camp will run from Monday 08th July to Friday 12th July and will be held by kind permission of the Fell family at Ballindenisk, Watergrasshill, Co Cork, this is a new venue for us and we are very excited about it!!

Ballindenisk has excellent facilities with plenty of parking/camping space, our own club house, ladies/gents toilets and showers.

We will have individual pony paddocks (or stabling if required at a small additional cost) all hay will also be provided

We have some excellent instructors already lined up for camp plus some brilliant fun filled activities! We are still finalising things but we can reveal that the older kids will get to try their hand at polo!! As Ballindenisk is not only one of Ireland’s top 3 day event venues it also has its own Polo Club! and Peter Fell has kindly agreed to do a lesson!! There will be something equally fun for our younger members too!!!

This is a residential camp and all food, drinks & snacks will be provided for all children attending camp, a guide to food will be posted nearer the time but should anyone have any specific dietary requirements please let us know.

Members will be placed into groups depending on ability and not specifically on age.

Any child under the age of 13 must have a parent or guardian staying with them overnight but parents will not be required to stay during the day as well. All parents will be asked to help with various duties over the week and a rota will be set up for this (taking into account work and other family commitments).Please check back regularly for more updates on camp.
