Young Equestrian Skills (YES) - School Holiday Programme
Kings Park Equestrian Centre is dedicated to developing young riders with their equestrian skills in a safe and fun environment.
Our School Holiday Programme is based on "Pony Club Camp" format, packed full of exciting activities, It allows kids to catch up with old friends or make some new ones in a safe and supportive environment.
Children will be placed into groups of similar age and skill level with days based on a mix of flat riding, jumping and games/sporting.

This programme is based on children who own their own horse. A limited amount of stables and yards are available if you would like to board your horse or pony for the duration at an additional charge.
Please note this is not a day-care based programme. Horse riding is a very dangerous sport and, where possible, a parent or guardian should be present and be responsible to assist the child with saddling, unsaddling and general care of their horse. All current Covid-19 regulations will apply.
We have strived to keep the costs as low as possible and therefore would welcome any help on the day!
