How good are Sandie’s HPRA holiday riding camps….

The last camp of the September/October 2016 school holidays is on now. The next camps will be held over the summer school holidays. Details will be on this website closer to the time.

Meanwhile take a look at how much fun the riders had today in the jumping session, before heading off in the afternoon on a riding race challenge, where they have to find hidden hints to find the prize. They will go home tomorrow, happy and tired from a fantastic camp.
