Pony Camp 2017


So what makes Country Treks so special?

The Horses and ponies - they are simply the best that money can buy! Schoolmasters that can teach you to jump a course of show jumps, or safe ponies that can give you your first gallop across a stubble field. We pride ourselves in the quality of our equine team. Take a look at ‘meet the horses’ and you will soon see why!

The Instructors – they are amazing. We have 3 UKCC level 2 accredited coaches with fantastic teaching ability and knowledge to make sure the pony camp not only builds confidence but gains personal skills. We understand pony camp (we’ve been doing it for 20 years) and make sure we deliver each individual the holiday of a lifetime! Year after year we have pony campers returning from all over the Country!

The Scenery – we are set in the beautiful South Shropshire countryside in our own 27 acre nature reserve complete with our own lake, woodland and mini cross country course. Our trail rides and hacking encompass some fabulous off road riding including meeting herds of wild ponies on the hill and other gorgeous scenic routes.

The Friendships - pony campers love the camaraderie and often form lifelong friendships with their new campers. All for the shared passion that is horses. The evenings are equally important and eating in our dining hall and the evening activities are all fantastic which offer team building  and new experiences which form the memories that will last a life time too!

The Variety – We really do give our pony campers a chance to try everything. Each small group can help plan with their instructors the timetable for the week. We do it all! Lessons, hacks, trail rides, picnic rides, show jumping, cross country, le trek, gymkhana, polo cross, race riding, we even have driving and miniature pony demos. There is never a dull moment with the highlight (of course) being the shows and competitions!

Safety – before you book you may want to reassure yourself of our impeccable attention to safety! I own and run the centre with my husband (for over 30 years) and we live here! It’s a family home with cabin style accommodation attached to our house. Each camp has two leaders who take over once the equine day is finished. They are on 24hr duty. I am most happy to talk personally with any parents or you are most welcome to come and visit the centre. Our best adverts are our past pony campers and their parents. Take a look at our testimonials page for more details.

Evening Activities- what makes us extra special? We are very lucky to have our sister company Live the Adventure LTD on site, providing wonderful evening activities from stand up paddleboarding, rock climbing, raft building, laser tag and so much more! All from our site at Ginny Hole... so when your day with the horses is over there is still a great sense of adventure to be had!

Catering – the pony camp is fully catered for by our very own chef who makes some of the best homemade meals around and her homemade cakes are to die for! Special diets can be catered for.  

Sleeping Facilities – the accommodation is either twin rooms or three bedded accommodation different age groups will be separated accordingly! The rooms are spacious and no doubt will accommodate plenty of ‘chatting space’ for those evening ‘pre sleep’ discussions! We have a log cabin especially for older teenagers so they can enjoy a slightly later finish of an evening. We can also accommodate groups of teenagers on our campsite.
