Celebrating The Best Children’s Riding Holidays This Half Term
For many horse mad children and teenagers the idea of a riding holiday without their parents is a dream! Well here at Equestrian Escapes we make dreams come true. We have a selection of approved riding establishments in the UK offering children and teenagers unaccompanied riding holidays where they get to experience just what it's like to have their own horse or pony.
We have an exquisite riding and language holiday available in Scotland
This luxury equestrian centre and hotel located between Glasgow and Edinburgh has earned a great reputation over the past 28 years for quality unaccompanied children’s horse riding holidays, providing terrific fun packed breaks for children aged between 8 and 16 years old. Here the aim is to give children the time of their lives remembered for years to come, with careful attention to safety and round the clock 24hr adult supervision.
On the unaccompanied children’s language and riding holiday we have wonderful fully qualified English teachers who tutor the children each day to ensure they develop their language skills. As well as the more formal tuition, the children perform plays and tableaus to make the whole learning experience fun and meaningful. It’s a marvellous way of learning or improving English language skills while enjoying a horse riding holiday.
The children will spend 2 hours in the classroom each day and the remainder of the time will be horse riding. It goes without saying that the whole object is to steep the children in English language so their conversational English is second nature to them.
Horse riding lessons are taught in English, and English is the language used throughout the centre.
There is also Kids Riding In Wiltshire in the rolling countryside
On this unaccompanied children's horse riding holiday accommodation is on site with the horses in the owner, Angie’s, privately owned cottage on the edge of the Rushmore Estate. There is 24 hour adult supervision providing on this exclusive children's activity break, with delicious home-cooked meals and friendly hosts. There is plenty of riding, helping with pony care and outdoor fun to be enjoyed with a maximum of 4 children per stay.
Initially, the children will learn how to handle their horse/pony safely including tying-up, leading and grooming. A typical day consists of stable care and feeding the horses and ponies, tacking up, and approximately 3 hours riding with experienced instruction and adult supervision at all times. Children will be taught stable management and will learn to care for all the needs of their horses and ponies. The riding will be a mixture of flat lessons and jumping lessons (a large indoor arena can be used in bad weather), hacks through the beautiful Cranborne Chase on the Rushmore Estate and cross country rides for the more experienced riders.
Thirdly there is gorgeous Children’s riding camp in the Lake District.
