Schedule

Arriving Friday 3rd (evening) – departing afternoon of Sunday 5th May

Friday

Cabins and stables will not be ready for occupancy before 5.00pm on the day of arrival. There are no lessons on the Friday, but you are very welcome to turn up before 5pm to enjoy a 'pre-camp' hack (a route will be provided – you may be allowed to hack around the grounds – no jumping – Friday evening, subject to weather), or use the gallops (please book these directly with Pontispool).  

If you prefer (or work dictates) please feel free to just arrive after 5pm to settle your horse in, unpack into your cabin and then join us for food.

Dinner

Saturday

Breakfast, lunch, dinner.

2 lessons, one morning, one afternoon.

We are also delighted to be able to meet one of the requests from your feedback and can offer massages (human) for those of you that would like to treat yourself to a little pampering. Laura Williamson, will be available by pre-arranged appointment on Saturday afternoon to sooth your tired muscles. More information on this will follow to those that book for camp.

Sunday

Breakfast, lunch.

2 lessons, one morning, one afternoon.

Cabins and stables must clean and vacated by 5.00pm.

Accommodation at Pontispool

Is in their shared cabins. We will do our best to put people with their friends (make sure you put your requests on the booking form) but unfortunately there is very little chance that you will be able to have a cabin to yourself. 

There is however an option to up-grade to “Lodge” accommodation with internal showers/toilets. The lodge sleep 16 in twin rooms and can be booked for an additional cost of £25/person/night (must be for both nights). Each room in the lodge is a twin, allocated on a shared basis.  If you want a room to yourself, it would be an additional £50/person/night. (Note, children are not allowed in the Lodges)

Note, no bedding is provided – you will need to bring your own sheet, pillow and duvet or sleeping bag.

Early Bird Discounted rates for members 

If deposit is paid BEFORE 15 March, the early bird rate for Instructional camp is £250
