Pontispool Adult Horse Camps

We run several extremely popular Adult Horse Camps annually at Pontispool.  These camps are open to all levels of rider over the age of 18 years.  We offer fabulous facilities and accommodation to suit all budgets.  We organise everything for you, including expert tuition from our experienced instructors, as well as a specialist speaker or demonstration for one evening and a fun competition and prize giving on the last day.  Our in house catering team provide amazing food throughout the weekend.   

All you need to do is bring your horse and we will do the rest!

New to 2024 - Eventer's Camp

Are you hoping for a successful Eventing season in 2024? If so, then come and sharpen up your riding skills at our specialist Eventer's Camp, running from 1st to 3rd March 2024. Perfect for those jumping 80cm and higher, this intensive weekend of training is the ideal way to prepare for the competition season ahead. 

Alongside sessions in cross country and show jumping, you will also receive training in flatwork and pole/gridwork - giving you the best possible start to achieving your new year goals.

Provisional instructors are Cameron Beer, Tim Cheffings and Abbie Lynch.

(Riders must be 18+ years old or 16/17 with adult supervision).

Don't just take our word for it...

Please thank the whole team of miracle workers who wove magic into our first Pontispool camp. It has exceeded my expectations (which were already quite high).

The human accommodation was lovely and clean, the food was perfectly balanced and beyond delicious, your xc and arena facilities were exciting and well maintained and the horse yards worked well for us too. Chris was a good instructor with a bottomless depth of knowledge that he generously shared with us all.

Because the camp ran so smoothly it brought our the best in everyone which fed a feeling of solidarity between us all.

Thanks to the whole team.  I hope to be back soon.

Hope you're well! Just want to say thank you and that the deluxe room I stayed in at camp was incredible. Room was absolutely immaculate in every way and more than I hoped for. Thank you so so much.

May I say your food and hospitality has been the best by far. Everyone on camp said how amazing the food was and how friendly you and your staff are which makes a lovely happy atmosphere.

Thank you very much for a really lovely camp last weekend. 

It was my first time with Pontispool and I really enjoyed every minute of it. Instructors were brilliant and food was great! It was a well organised camp and all our questions/worries were put aside as soon as we arrived (thank you)
