INTRODUCTION

Come and join us on an adventure where equestrian activities are combined with English lessons and fun activities.

The English Country Riding Program is open to boys and girls of all levels in July and August (one to several weeks available). However, participants are required to have completed at least one year of equestrian experience.

During their stay, in addition to their riding sessions, the students participate in fun English lessons. To help them improve, they will be supported by coaches and instructors during training and campus life who will ensure that the language spoken is only English. To achieve this, the number of students of the same nationality will be limited.

This program includes horse riding, accommodation, and recreational activities during the stay as well as English lessons. Since 1988, this camp has been welcoming young athletes in a warm, fun and safe environment. The main goal is to ensure that all young people return home having improved their sporting, language and confidence skills.

Available Programs

In a privileged setting, the participants of the horse riding camp live their passion to the full while participating in English lessons and activities to make the most of their summer. Participants alternate their day between horse riding, English lessons and recreational activities.

TRAINING/ACTIVITIES

What is the level of the riding sessions?

Designed for beginners (with at least one year of experience) as well as experienced riders, this camp is an ideal opportunity to learn or improve the art of horseback riding. The participants spend half a day riding, either in the morning or in the afternoon. The main purpose of the horse riding camp in England is to welcome young people who want to both develop their sporting skills and improve their English. This is achieved through a combination of training, English lessons and recreational activities, therefore the level of intensity of the training is not considered to be high.

What are the topics covered?

Taking care of and preparing the horses is a key part of the program. Every day, the young riders learn how to groom and prepare their horses before riding them. They also learn the names of the equipment they use and the characteristics of the horse. All sessions are conducted in English. As well as long rides in the English countryside, the students also take part in dressage and show jumping. Beginner riders start with poles on the ground, but the difficulty increases for more experienced riders. At the end of the program, all riders compete in a competition and put into practice everything they have learned during the week.

What is the level of the riders?

The horse riding course in England is recommended for riders of beginner to advanced level (minimum one year experience). On the first day of the course, the young riders are divided according to their level so that they can do their riding session with riders of the same level as them to ensure the best possible progress.

Training Facilities

All the campuses offered for horse riding camps have good sports facilities. Large outdoor natural grass pitches, gyms or tennis courts are among the facilities available. A shared lounge with sofas, TV, board games and magazines also allows students to relax and chat with friends.

ENGLISH LESSONS

Summer horse riding camps in England are the ideal opportunity to experience a complete language experience. Riding sessions and daily life are conducted in the English language, in addition to which the students also participate in fun English lessons in the morning or afternoon, taught by qualified and experienced teachers. At the end of their stay, they receive a report on their progress.

Camp Schedule

A typical day during the camp

The students wake up in the morning and have breakfast. Before starting the horse riding or English lessons, they have a short meeting with all the instructors who explain the day's activities, and this meeting is also held after lunch. In the morning, the participants have either English lessons or a horse riding session. At the end of the morning, they go to the canteen to have lunch and get their strength back for the afternoon's riding sessions or English lessons, depending on whether they have already done so in the morning or not.

The horse riding camp in England also welcomes other young people on campus who have selected other sports or activities such as football, tennis, drama or rugby. Participants in the summer horse riding camps have the opportunity to meet these young people during free time at the end of the day.

In the evening, when all participants have had dinner, they participate in evening activities, organized by the animation teams. The purpose is to strengthen the team bond within the group, allowing the youth to create many memories and new friendships. The participants then go to bed to get ready for the next day.

This program is given as a rough guide. It may be modified or adjusted according to technical criteria, safety requirements or the weather conditions at the time.

Excursions

Excursions are organized during the weekend when participants stay two weeks or more. Young people can enjoy the following activities: a visit to an amusement park, a cultural and/or tourist visit with a shopping break at the end of the day.
