The pony camps every year a big party. The program is packed with activities and a lot of rest you do not get. Or overeating, cosiness and a lot riding!!!
The pony camp week consists of five day programs, of about 9.00 o'clock in the morning until about 20.30 pm. So you're not sleeping at the stables. Make sure you have a good night's sleep because you bet that you are tired after such ponykampdag! The week runs from Monday / Friday.
The program is packed with horse activities. You have the whole week a horse or pony!, that you select at registration for the camp, so be on a special horse in time have in mind! When you wake up at the stables will go first put your horse outside in the sunshine and good care, brushing and having crabs. If your horse is nice and brushed his hooves are gonna saddle clean. And then the morning program always begins with riding, a nice dune ride, a carrouselles, games or a polderrit.

When you have eaten their fill at the dinner starts the evening with some weather riding but also a dart evening, karaoke, and finally on Friday the cinema.
From October to April we organize every Sunday morning a beach ride.
This is a ride for advanced riders who carries on a stretch of beach between Castricum and Egmond Within. Through the dunes of Egmond and surroundings you drive to the beach where you will have a fantastic experience. At the sign of the very experienced coach all in their fastest gallop horses will make a section of the beach. Click on the image for a video of a beach ride!
It is therefore of the utmost importance that the rider can keep the well under control horse.
For this, it is therefore necessary that we should know whether the rider is suitable for such use on the beach.
If you want to arrange a beach ride and you are still not known to us, then it is wise to make another trip to us, so that we can judge whether you are able to ride a beach ride.
The beach rides are very popular and so quickly booked. So be quick to!
