Enjoy Pony Camp at Kerry's premier Equestrian venue. Running for the last 12 years our camps are suitable for riders of 4 -16 years. We will split you into groups in accordance with age and abilities and your day will involve riding lessons and practical sessions. Your stay with us over Pony camp will include riding lessons and trekking, feeding and grooming the ponies and all the time working towards mini-competitions during camp. The obligatory fancy dress will also be held with riders dressed up for riding! Remember we are the only Riding School in Tralee which is approved by the Association of Irish Riding Establishments - we are fully legal and insured, and will provide a safe and happy environment for your child to enjoy camp! Our aim is to make the most of your child's time here with us at the stables and improve his/her ability to "Own their own Pony for a day". If your child has their own pony and you feel they could benefit from a weeks tuition we can help - your pony can come on livery for a camp rate of €12/day. Please feel free to come and visit the stables and we will show you around or phone us if you have any further queries. Our rider registration form can be downloaded here.
