What can they expect?

From day one they should expect to have FUN! The week consists of flat work ,jumping, stable management and use of some of the amazing facilities at Hickstead including the water complex in ring 4, but most of all,  having  a great time with all your friends.

Camping will be in any of

  1. Your lorry/trailer (hook up will be available with a contribution to cost if needed)
  2. Your own or borrowed tent
  3. Provided by us in jockey rooms.

We have limited ability to supply camping accommodation but can do if necessary as we don’t want anyone to not be able to come for this reason.

The focus this year is on making memories and being independent whilst of course having a fantastic time and being safe and cared for.

  • Ponies/horses will be kept in professionally supervised yard. However part of camp is members fully caring for their own precious steeds! A list of equipment needed for your pony is in the forms to follow.
  • Younger members are supported by older campers and we have pastoral adult support throughout
  • All meals are provided
  • We have a set of experienced instructors whom we use all year and following their feedback campers are designated “Rides” for the week. The Rides are decided by many factors including current pony club test riding level, age of rider, size of pony/horse, and friendship groups. Most importantly we will be prioritising rides to build confidence, encourage team working, and create networks of support and ambition within our pony club for the competing year.
  • The forms will provide further information.

ADULT HELPERS:

We will need a minimal amount of parental support but do of course need extra hands for set up, poo picking in arenas, stand by for rides, any emergency situations. Please let us know if you are happy to go on our volunteer list.

Requirements to attend Residential camp

You must have attended at least 3 rallies on the pony you are taking to camp in the previous 12 months to be eligible to attend. Camp counts as one rally if you are riding the same pony. If a rider has not attended three rallies on a new pony they will be asked to do so before confirming their place so they can be seen riding and grouped accordingly.

THIS IS A PONY CLUB NATIONAL REQUIREMENT BUT EXCEPTIONS WILL OF COURSE BE CONSIDERED WITH DISCRETION AND DISCUSSION WITHIN COMMITEE IN THE FOLLOWING CIRCUMSTANCES :

  1. PC Members from another pony club  – just get in touch and we will contact DC or mutual instructors to confirm suitability and attendance at their rallies. Ideally would like to see the combination in action in some way!
  2. Sudden lameness and being lent another pony/horse  – if combination are known or assessed.
  3. Young/Green horses who may need rest/swop as agreed with instructors . GROUPS will not be changed though from initial pairing,
