Mowbray Park FarmStay has been running horsemanship camps for over 40 years. They’re suited for children aged from 8 years to 16 years.
Our camps are a wonderful way to introduce children to horses in a well managed and fun environment. During your time on the farm you will also get to experience a range of farm activities guided by our farmers. We have a pool and tennis court so come prepared.
Suitable for all levels of experience, from the beginner to the intermediate or advanced rider who wants to keep progressing their skills and knowledge.
Our Horsemanship techniques are holistic in the sense that we teach from the ground up. We talk often about horse behaviour and why horses act the way they do. In these conversations the children learn about prey and predator dynamics.
Over the duration of the camp the children will develop a partnership with their horse, they will discover how to communicate with their horse using a combination of love, language and leadership.
Our aim for each child attending is that they finish the camp with a better understanding of horse behaviour, thus creating a safer environment for humans and horses.
The camp is two nights three days, we’re all in the same lodge with a ‘house Mum’ on the night duties, fun activities in the evening. Arrive between 9.30am and 10:00am on the first day and finish up at 3.30pm on the final day. $450.00 per child.
Our next camp is the 12th to 14th January 2018
