Re: Anyone been on an adult riding camp?

I went on one last bank holiday. I didnt enjoy it very much as it wasnt very well organised, there was too much difference in the abilities of the riders. I normally compete at a minimum of 90cm, my sister is still at the lowest cross poles stage and we were in the same lesson! Not that i object to riding with my big sis but i did feel sorry for her as the instructor would only let her trot or canter over a pole on the ground! There were issues with the amount of stables, quality of food and alot of time spent doing not a lot. Needless to say i wont be going back again. The level of instruction was a bone of contention as well, out of the 4 instructors only the organisor and 1 other taught each of the 3 days and then one would only take private lessons at an extra cost, so there was no real chance of carrying on with anything i had learnt. A big disappointment i'm afraid.


I would like to do one of the active rider ones but at the moment i have other things planned when they are on.

 No, but would love to go.  Me and some of the yh girls are planning on taking a horsey holiday together in September, meeting up at a kind of mid way point and having 4 days break.  Should be fun, we've never met before only know each other from here and fb
