Blackdown Mendip Riding Club and Brent Knoll Riding Clubs have teamed up to bring you TWO 2024 CAMPS!!!  One at Pontispool at the beginning of May (which does not clash with Badminton in 2024!) and one at Stockland Lovell at the end of September.

INSTRUCTIONAL CAMP

Over the course of the weekend riders will receive up to 4 sessions (at Pontispool, 3 sessions at Stockland Lovell) of group instruction which will consist of flat, poles, grids, SJ and XC.

You select how many of each session you would prefer (maximum of 2 XC) and we will do our best to accommodate your request. So you want an all flat camp - book it. Want to jump, jump and jump - you got it!

All sessions will be made up of small groups according to rider/horse abilities and requirements. 

HAPPY HACKER CAMP

Stockland Lovell Only

The hacker camp is really popular amongst our members who like to enjoy the open space 

and many lovely hacking routes that run from Stockland Lovell across the headland. All routes are marked out and offer some lovely long hacks and open canters. 

You will also have use of the arena and XC course at specified times. Private lessons with the instructors can be arranged at an additional cost. This needs to be booked before you arrive. If numbers permit, we will try to include you in the group lessons.

NON RIDING CAMP

For parents / guardians accompanying junior members, owners of horses being ridden by others or partners coming along to join in 

- there's still plenty of fun to be had 'on the ground!'

The cost includes a two night fully catered mini break (breakfast, lunch and dinner!) - with plenty of walking opportunities (as the non-paid groom and photographer for your rider!) and on-site entertainment... 

 - please bring you own bedding, plasters and alcohol! 

Important information before you book!

For 2024 there will be a non-refundable £50 deposit, followed by two instalments.  Both camps venues require significant non-refundable deposits, so we need to have commitment earlier from members next year, so early bird discounts will only be for those that book in good time. 

 

Instalments will be as follows:

Pontispool camp:

  • 1st instalment by 22nd March

  • 2nd instalment by 22nd April

Stockland Lovell camp:

  • 1st instalment by 2nd August

  • 2nd instalment by 1st Sept

Cancellation information:

  • Camp deposit of £50 is non-refundable.

  • Cancellations before the second instalment date – any payments made will be refunded less the deposit.

  • Cancellations after the second instalment date may only be refunded, less the deposit, if your space is filled with another paid booking – This means if the camp space is not filled you will be required to pay the total balance in full.

Please also remember:

Horse Passports & Flu Vaccinations

All horses and ponies attending camp must comply with the venue's policy

Riding Hats & Body Protectors

​It is the responsibility of all riders to wear hats and body protectors that are fully compliant with current Riding Club standards. [New back protector standards for 2024!] Any rider found not to be wearing the correct standard hat and body protector will not be allowed to ride.

Equipment

Please bring your own horse feed, mucking out equipment, wheelbarrow, water bucket, feed bowls etc. 

Finally, sadly dogs are not allowed at camp
