Welcome to the Beas River Senior Residential Camp event page. Registration is now closed.
Spaces for this camp are very limited due to the number of horses/ponies we can get, so please register early. The cost of camp is $4,500 this includes two rides per day, accomodation for 3 nights in the Beas River Chalets, all meals, water and healthy snacks.
Payment should be made together with your registration. Your registration will only be considered complete when we have received proof of payment. Please read the Event policy document found below regarding payment methods and cancellation. (these can also be found in the "Documents" folder under the "Files" tab on the website).
Camp is open to members 13yrs and above, and Upper Intermediate / Advanced Level. 12 year olds may be allowed if they are very securely at the correct level (at the discretion of the DC/Chief Instructor). This is roughly about C+ Test Level - you do not, this year, have to have your C+ Test but you should comfortably be at that level. Please refer to the riding Levels page of the website for a description of levels. It will be at the discretion of the District Commissioner as to whether you are of a high enough level to join the camp. This is for safety reasons as it is a cross-country camp.
If there are still places after registration has closed we will lower the age and experience level and adjust the type of training to suit the riders we have at camp. If this happens, the x-country competiton will most likely be taken out and x-country training will only happen if the instructors are confident that all the riders in their group are competant enough to handle expected problems on the grass.
Members may wish to bring their own livery horse, but due to feed, transport and stabling costs (which the HKPC will pay for) there will be no reduction of camp fees
We will now be staying in the Beas River Chalets on Monday night before camp starts. I will be at the Chalets between 5 and 6pm to check everyone into their rooms. You are responsible for your own dinner on the Monday night. Thursday night we will be staying in the Marfoos rest area so please make sure you have something to sleep on, a sleeping bag/blanket and a pillow.
Day Four info
Both the showjumping competition and the cross-country will be held in the morning. The cross-country will start around 9am and we aim to finish the show jumping by about 12pm. Once the ponies and horses are looked after there will be a lunch followed by prizegiving.
As always parents are very welcome to come along on the show day and we will need volunteers for the cross-country jump judging in the afternoon (no horsey knowledge needed). You may also join us for lunch, we will not charge, but of course any donations will be gratefully received. If you wish to join us for lunch please state how many people on the registration page as the catering staff will need specific numbers.
The prizegiving will be at approximately 2pm. Pick up around 2.30pm
