One- or two-day camp

 

Your child can spend 6 hours in nature, in the company of other children and animals.

Camp includes: one riding lesson and ongoing theoretical and practical horsemanship training. The camp is structured to foster teamwork with other children and develop responsibility and co-operation.

The continuous exposure to horses during the camp improves the child’s relationship with horses and leads them into a spontaneous frame of mind around horses. This approach makes children into better riders because they do not spend a lot of time getting accustomed to the horse’s presence once in the saddle. They mount and ride without apprehension, having already connected with the horse on the ground.

Camps have a positive effect on the child’s emotional and intellectual development in other areas of their lives.
