About the Event
2023 Moreton Morrell Riding Club Camp…..7th to 10th July
Camp will run over 3 days this year, following the same format as last year.
When and where we go:
Arrive Friday afternoon 7th July any time after 3pm
(Riding Saturday, Sunday, Monday)
Leave approx 4pm Monday 10th July
Moreton Morrell College CV35 9BP
The campus is 64 miles from Naphill but a very easy journey of around 1hr 15 min in a trailer or lorry.
It’s a friendly, grown-up Pony Club camp, offering training, a relaxed social atmosphere and time to enjoy all things equestrian, but with definitelyno tack or stable inspections!
For those who haven’t been before, the College offers excellent facilities, with two covered arenas and one outdoor, so we can plan a varied programme and all work on good surfaces, whatever the weather. The horses will be stabled in permanent ‘American barn’ facilities and riders can opt for individual college rooms (NOT ensuite this year though) or use their lorry or trailer to ‘camp’ on site. There will be a campers’ room so a shower is available and we will have access to common rooms area with fridges etc.
NB it is possible to graze horses in hand but there is no grass turnout option.
What we do:
There will be two sessions each day and there will be a variety of training options. As well as flatwork lessons, we can offer sessions on:
Jumping – from ‘crossed cocktail sticks’ upwards
Pole work /pole physio – ridden flatwork exercises with poles. Arena cross country jumping (the ground on the cross country course at Moreton Morrell is not always suitable for training in high summerdsds). Dressage and arena craft – working to refine test movements for the best possible marks..
Other things may be possible – ask and we’ll try!
Our instructors are available for two teaching slots each day.
Before we go everyone will complete a preference form and from this we work out a programme to suit as many individual wishes as possible. This means that, over the course of three days (six sessions), you will be probably be riding with different instructors and riders.
Everyone will have a session scheduled both morning and afternoon each day, the exact format or length of lessons will be determined by your preferences and you will get the programme in advance of camp. The sessions may vary from larger groups doing flatwork, jumping or pole lessons to paired shorter sessions on any more specific requests.
BUT be aware things may be altered. Last year’s extreme heat meant that some sessions were shortened / rescheduled so come prepared to be flexible.
We will try our very best to meet everyone’s requests but it is very tricky to sort out so please be aware some compromises may be needed to give everyone the best possible time.
In previous years we self-catered for breakfast and lunch; you can bring food with you and use the fridges/microwave in the common rooms, and there is Sainsbury’s in Lighthorne for top-ups. The college canteen MAY be also open (but it was not available last year), we will confirm that when we know.
In the evenings we will eat out in local pubs or you can make your own arrangements.
There is always plenty of time for watching others ride, drinking (tea and wine/beer) and eating cake, hopefully while sitting in the sunshine.
What will it cost:
We have worked out costs, but please be aware they are subject to some adjustment depending on numbers.
Hostel room £360 and Camping (with shared use of a room/shower) £320
BUT if we have optimum numbers there should be a refund (as we have managed for past three years)
These costs include hay but do NOT include hard feed for horses, or any human food.
College horses MAY be available for an extra £30.
We plan to have a maximum of 18 riders.
To secure your place please pay a £100 deposit via the club website BY 6thMARCH. You need to let us know if you are camping in your lorry / trailer or require a college room. Also email that you have paid to me at firstname.lastname@example.org (phone 01844 347972 with queries)
A second payment falls due 1st May and the balance by 1st July
