Summer Pony Camp
Pony Boot Camp for Advanced riders

Your child can live their dream for a full week at the Slieve Aughty Centre pony camp!

Available Monday to Friday July 5th to 9th and 19th to 23rd and August 16th to 20th.

Pony Boot Camp:

Perfect for the older advanced rider who either owns his/her own pony or wishes to.  We will cover everything you need to know to own and care for a horse or pony, such as parasites, feeding and basic first aid.  Find out what your pony needs at different times of the year.  Find out where horseshoes came from and why horses are so fast.  And of course we will do plenty of riding, including lessons, treks, bareback, horsemanship, pony games, jumping, and mounted weapons training!!!
