Adult horse camps are soaring in popularity, and if you have never taken your horse on one, here are five reasons why we think you should give one a try. Here are 5 reasons to bring your horse to camp:
Polish Up On Your Passion
If your passion is Showing, Dressage, Jumping, Eventing, Natural Horsemanship or discovering the beautiful British countryside, there is a horse camp out there for you! Some camps will offer a good mix of everything whilst others are tailored specifically towards a particular area or discipline. Horse camps are a fantastic escape from the everyday and generally will give you a great mix of learning and fun.
Make New Friends
Horse camps are a super way to meet new people and make new friends. Choose a local horse camp, and you could even meet new hacking buddies! Meeting like-minded equestrians will make horse camp even more fun than the practical aspect of the staycation with your horse.
Give Your Horse A New Experience
Staying away in a new location and stable is a unique experience for your horse, without the added atmosphere of a show. These new experiences will lay a positive foundation for the future and give your horse more confidence without the worry.
Try Something New
Horse camps are the perfect way to try something new with your horse; Perhaps you have always fancied jumping your dressage horse or trying side-saddle. The beauty of going to a well-organised camp is that you can dip your toe in and try something new with your horse. You never know you might find a new discipline, you both love!
Horse Camps Aren’t Just For The Confident Rider
If lack of confidence is stopping you, look for camps that specialise in nervous riders. Choosing a horse camp tailored towards giving rider confidence will mean you will have a supporting hand should you get the wobbles and worries.
