PONY CAMP For a really fun, action packed holiday experience, try us! We give you the chance to ride every day, and try loads of activities you can't do anywhere else. Don't worry if you haven't done much riding, our ponies have done it all before, and will make you an expert in no time.

Several camps are held during the summer holidays. The Camps last for 3 or 5 days with children arriving between 9.00am and 10.00am on Monday and departing at 4.00pm on Wednesday or 4.30pm Friday. The camps often quickly sell out, so if there is a particular week you would like, please book early.

For the younger members (away from home for the first time) three days is often sufficient and can be arranged for the first half of the week. Young children living close to Valley Farm may like to be collected after the evening activities and return for Breakfast if staying over is too much for them.

If you have your own pony, how about bringing him here on holiday with you? Lots of regulars start with one of our ponies on their first camp, but then buy a pony of their own, they bring him back here on holiday with them. Own horses will live in. Feed/hay to be provided by the owner.

Accommodation is in our small fenced camping area adjacent to the house and stables, with CCTV in operation. Campers are welcome to bring their own tents or stay in our 'Wendy Houses'. The children are grouped with their friends or with others of a similar age. The toilet and shower area is located on the campsite and is lit at night. Qualified nanny/members of staff are on duty during the evening and all night on site with the children.

All meals and drinks are provided inclusive in the price, served in the canteen areas on site. Ice Creams, fizzy drinks and sweets are available to be purchased from the Tuck Shop and vending machines.

During the day we provide a high standard of tuition for both novice and advanced riders in a fun holiday atmosphere. Instruction is in small groups depending on ability. This means that friends may not be able to be together for every activity if their experience is different. In the evenings a variety of games/activities are organised for all the children together.

We aim to provide a well rounded educational fun packed holiday in a safe environment, along the ideals of the Pony Club. The children are overseen at all times and assisted when necessary but they are responsible for the care of their pony, and for themselves. They do their own washing up, and arrive for each activity when the bell rings. We have around 45 trained horses to choose from, but sometimes depending on the ability of the riders it may be appropriate to share.
