School Holiday Program - 11 to 18 years - Program 2

This program’s theme is dressage test riding, formation riding and show horse.  You will learn how to navigate your way around a dressage arena, how to ride accurate figures, memorise a test and perform it to get the best work out of your horse and how to achieve the best score you can  for your level.  You will learn how to present yourself and your horse for show horse competitions, how to ride the perfect workout and we'll have some fun in a Zia Park show horse competition.  We will put together a musical formation ride for you to practice every day and when we've got it just right we will film it and publish it on You Tube.  We always modify the content of our courses to suit the experience of each group, so don't worry if you're a beginner, you will be able to participate in everything at camp.

This program is suitable for beginners and for more experienced riders.  Unmounted activities may include lessons in stable management, care of horses and equipment, rules of competitions and show preparation.  Pupils will ride at least twice daily. Activities may include traditional lessons, mounted games, dressage test riding, show jumping, cross country jumping, trail riding and active riding depending on riders' standards and interests.   Riders will be grouped according to age and riding experience.
