“The kids had so much fun with loads of games and activities in between the rides. It’s such a great way for the children to meet new friends and to learn about caring for their ponies independently of their parents or carers. Their sense of achievement at the end of the camp is palpable too and in just three days they gain so much from their experience.”
Camps vary between Pony Clubs, depending on the location. Some prefer to hold theirs at established equine venues such as Bicton Arena or Pontispool while others borrow a farmer’s barn and make temporary stabling for the ponies.
Whatever the chosen venue, fun and learning are a central theme, and this summer Philippa will be behind her camera again at another Pony Club camp where more characters, both equine and human, will become stars of the small screen.
