Livery birr equestrian centre midlands pony rides horses

We offer regular pony camps throughout the year and in particular during school holidays.  This is an ideal opportunity for children to spend full days exposed to all the fun of owning their own pony for the week!  They will learn stable management and also enjoy dressage, show-jumping and cross country lessons and on the last day they will enjoy some friendly rivalry as they participate in the end of week show-jumping competition, where parents and families are encouraged to come along and see what they have learnt during the week.
