This event is in the past.
Dear Pony Clubbers,
The HKPC Chinese New Year Camp will be held at Tuen Mun Public Riding School. This is a mixed age camp and is open to all HKPC members who are aged 7yrs and above and all riding levels from beginner to advanced.
Camp will start at approximately 8.30am and finish at 5pm on Day 1-2. Day 3 is competition day and will finish at midday. The competition will be followed by a BBQ and Prize Giving and will finish at around 2pm.
Activities: Each child will be paired with another member and will share a horse/pony with them for the whole of camp. They will ride in groups of up to 6 twice a day on Day 1 and 2. They will also be able to have a go at vaulting, which is basically gymnastics on horseback and is great fun.
One of the very important parts of camp is learning how to look after the ponies.
The younger, less experienced campers will have lots of help. There will also be non stable activities such as horsey arts and crafts.
Food: On Day 1 campers are asked to bring a packed lunch, Day 2 we order in Pizzas, and on Day 3 there will be a BBQ with burgers, hot-dogs and a variety of salads. Throughout camp there will be water and squash available, as well as unlimited fruit and snacks. On the final day we ask parents to please bring a salad or dessert, the HKPC will provide all burgers, hot dogs, condiments etc.
Volunteers: As you know, these camps cannot run without the help from volunteers. If you are free we would really appreciate your help.
General Information: Parents may come to watch and support their children on the last day of Camp, but for the Day 1 and Day 2, please, only parents who are scheduled to help.
Indemnity, medical and permission forms will be sent to campers who receive a place.
Any questions, please email us.
If any members have their own horse/pony on full livery and would like to bring them to camp please email the secretary and we will try to accommodate you.
