During the Summer holidays Wicklow Equestrian Centre hold a number of Summer Pony camps. These camps offer young people the opportunity to spend time with and around horses and ponies learning how to care for and ride ponies.
The Program Pony camp normally runs from Tuesdays to Fridays from 9.30 am to 1pm daily. Each day the campers will recieve 1 horse riding lesson, 1 stable management lecture and will have to care for their ponies including feeding , mucking out, grooming etc.
The cost for the camp is €140. Each camp is divided into levels of ability where we try to keep those of a similar standard together. We recommend that each child brings suitable cloathing and a snack to keep them going .
