Children's Horse Riding Camp

Own a pony for the duration of your stay for a fun filled friendly holiday in the beautiful English Lake District! We have been running this successful unaccompanied childrens camp for the past 5 years. The children stay onsite to the stables in a converted bunk house where they are involved in supervised activities to fill the day.

Typical Day

Initially, the children will learn how to handle their pony safely including tying-up, leading and grooming. A typical day consists of plenty of riding tuition plus stable care with experienced instruction and adult supervision at all times. Children will ride in small, similar ability groups.  Children will be taught stable management and will learn to care for all the needs of their horses and ponies.

Reviews from 2019

Review by 9 year old!

It was really fun staying up till 9 pm and watching some movies. It was really hard doing the yard jobs - the water is so heavy and there’s a lot of straw but it was great doing all those things for Rosie my pony. It was fun going out before bed. It was brilliant sleeping all together in a room with bunk beds I had so much fun and made new friends. The food was delicious and you got to choose so don’t worry about there being things you don’t like. I definitely want to go again next year.

Brilliant Horse Camp Holiday

My daughter spent a great week here on her own having riding lessons, hacking out, pony games, mucking out and yard cleaning. The staff and other girls are friendly and the food is good - she never got hungry. The sleeping and washing facilities are good and clean. See you next year.

If you would prefer to enjoy a short break away with your child then have a look at the standard riding package that we offer at the same centre in the Lake District. 

Other dates including June are available at our other unaccompanied kids camp which is run in Scotland
