Horse riding camps are a great option for boys and girls who want to spend a few weeks of the summer learning English and going to horse riding classes to learn, among other things: to ride, get to know and care for horses or to go on long group treks in the country enjoying nature. The horse riding camps take place in various areas of Spain and England. The list below includes all the available options:

Horse riding has been a sport since Roman times. This sport is especially recommended for children since not only do they get physical exercise, but the relationship between the horse and the rider and the care of the horse is also very important. Also, the fact that it is a sport which is performed outdoors in natural surroundings is an added extra which allows the child to enjoy sport and nature at the same time.

Spain and England are both countries where the various types of horse riding are very popular and for this reason the majority of horse riding camps are located in these countries.

Most of these camps offer a combination of English and horse riding classes. Therefore, the participants go to English classes for part of the day and the other part is dedicated to the sport. The camps are aimed at boys and girls of any level, from complete beginners to children who are used to horse riding or ride on a regular basis. The idea is to enjoy the summer, improve their level of English and make friends of different nationalities to share their love of horses with.

In Spain you can choose between various programmes:

  • The Sotogrande horse riding camp: this is an international school which offers a camp during the summer. This camp includes horse riding and English classes for the children to enjoy the horses, learn languages and live an unforgettable experience.

  • The horse riding camp in Spain: This camp takes place in the heart of the Parque Nacional de los Lagos de Aigüestortes y Sant Maurici, en los valles de Àneu, one of the most beautiful valleys of the Lleida Pyrenees. Participants in the riding camp, depending on the chosen activity, go to their language classes, to the nature workshop or to one of the activities of the multi-adventure program. At noon, they have lunch and start the horseback riding session. In the afternoon, they take advantage of the free time to relax, take a dip in the pool or chat with their new friends. It is open to boys and girls with a beginner or intermediate level.

In England the following options are available:

  • Exsportise Horse Riding Camp: Exsportise offers a horse riding camp with English classes in the south of England, so that young horse lovers aged between 9 and 17 years old can enjoy a different summer making friends from all around the world.

  • BSC Horse Riding Camp: in this camp, which is situated in various locations around the United Kingdom, young people between the ages of 8 and 17 years old have the opportunity to improve their level of English thanks to the intensive course offered, while they enjoy their favourite sport three afternoons a week.
