Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need Horse Riding Qualifications?

No you don’t.  If you have a passion for horses and are capable of working at the horse riding/equestrian centre then there’s a great job at camp for you. You’d need to be capable of pitching in and mucking out, saddling up and all the common day to day activities you’d expect to do.

I already hold a qualification, is this ok?

Yes.  If you hold a Pony Club, BHS Award or any other qualification, you’d be incredible at camp. You clearly have the passion thats needed to work with horses, and the skills to be an instructor and teach the children. You’d be a star!

What does the job involve?

Every camp is different but horse riding at summer camp is for the children to enjoy, and all will be different ages and levels of ability. So some sessions will be walking first time campers on the horses, some sessions will be trotting and others will involve jumps.

Working on the equestrian centre means you’re an integral part of camp, so you’ll have all the fun that someone who works at sport, or on the water front enjoys!

Will I get chance to take part in other activities?

Yes. Even though you’re job role is in horse riding, you’ll have an active part in camp.  There are many breaks in the day, join in with evening activities and skits and be a valuable team member in colour wars!
