We have some fantastic Pony Camps in our Equestrian Centre!

During school holiday periods one of the activities that we offer are Pony Camps. There are different camps based on levels of experience and age, we have camps for children & young people from the age of 2 years upwards under the constant supervision of our qualified and experienced coaches.  We also offer Equine Vaulting Clinics.

Our Beginner Level Pony Camps are a great fun and positive way to introduce your child to horses & ponies, learn how to horse ride and learn all about taking care of the horses and ponies.

We offer Pony Camps & Clinics for more advanced levels which are a great way for more experienced riders to further advance their skills and knowledge.

We keep the numbers of our camps very small so that your child will receive lots of 1-to-1 attention and also for safety reasons.

How do I find out more, check availability and book a place for my child?

Please contact us on 01 2720704 ext 201 or clodagh@festinalente.ie.
