Every child is matched with a horse or pony for the entire program allowing them to connect and progress together. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced rider, we have the right match for you.
Over 40 different horses and ponies - jumping & dressage - are stabled at the equestrian center so for each child we have a furry friend that is compatible with the rider's personality, age and level. This ensures success for both rider and horse!
"The stars of the show"
For children who like to ride different horses, there is enough variation. Our horses have different personalities, from bombproof to energetic. Riding different horses will help improve confidence and control. For children who like to ride different horses, there is enough variation.
We believe in teaching true horsemanship skills, so our children will groom and tack up their horses themselves. We have workshops, so the children learn to take care of their own horses in a safe environment.
The children eat three full meals a day. Meals are served at a big table where we eat together. A salad bar is available during lunch and dinner. We have healthy snacks and drinks available all day. We believe the participants of our camp are young prospects so we take care they all eat enough so they can perform optimally.
An oriental breakfast is served every morning. It consists of freshly baked petits pains, different kinds of bread, milk, juice, sweet and savoury sandwich filling, tea, coffee & fruits.
Lunch consists of different kinds of bread, milk, juice, sweet and savoury sandwich filling, tea, coffee, fruits & vegetables.
The dinners differ every evening, a few examples of these are homemade Spaghetti Bolognese, a barbecue and a “make your own healthy pizza” night.
We are dedicated to making our program available for children with food allergies and intolerances. Vegetarian meals are also available upon request.
