Dates for Camp 2024: 17-19 May and 13-15 September at MKEC.
After the success of last year's summer camp, Milton Keynes Riding Club, are excited to offer 2 camps this year at Milton Keynes Equestrian Centre. With our choice of dates, hopefully we will avoid the scorching hot weather of mid summer.
Fancy just getting away from it all and spending some quality time with your horse?
Want to receive top quality tuition based at fantastic facilities for both horse & rider?
Want to make some friends and have fun?
Well perhaps you should come along to our summer camps!
Adults only !
Our excellent coaches will train you. You will be well fed. You will have time to relax & chat. Meet up with old friends or make some new ones. Our residential camp will start on Friday afternoon and run until Sunday lunchtime. It includes four lessons in small groups.
This camp is aimed at Riding Club members who want to develop their riding skills, both on the flat and over fences, and who wish to make the most of the superb facilities at MKEC and our excellent trainer, Jane Hussell.
MKEC has a large sand arena, grass arenas, a mini cross country area in a small enclosed field, with jumps from 15-60cm, and the main cross country course in around 80 acres, and including jumps 60-110cm, water, ditches, banks and steps.
Programme for the weekend:
Arrive Friday, pick a stable, settle your horse and meet your fellow campers with a cuppa. Your first lesson will be on Friday afternoon. Turnout in individual paddocks is also available during the day.
Saturday will include 2 lessons and on Sunday morning you will have your final lesson and lunch, before you pack up, muck out your stable, poo pick your field, and head home.
Hacking is also available from MKEC if required.
