Adopt A Pony

Each rider has their own horse/pony to ride and care for on their holiday. A great chance to find out what it’s like to have your own!

Starters to advanced riders welcome (children need to have reached a level where they are off the lead rein in walk & trot and starting to learn to canter before they can join one of our holidays.)

Stay for 1 week or more.

Over 40 school horses and ponies suitable for all ages and abilities.

Small riding groups, determined by ability.

The children’s first lesson on a Monday is all about ensuring that the child is in the correct level group and on a suitable pony.

Show Day

Each Friday is Show day.

Everyone gets a chance to win rosettes in tack & turnout, a musical ride or dressage, show-jumping / cross country (weather dependent) or gymkhana games.

Friends and family are invited to watch the fun. Although competition day starts at 10 am, (with dressage, tack and turnout and sometimes a round of jumping), parents are asked to join us from 2pm onwards when there will be a demonstration in the form of drill rides and / or a jumping session, where the children can show their parents how much they have learnt during their stay with us.

A prize giving and barbecue (weather permitting) concludes the day (finishes around 6pm).

Accommodation

Our young guests stay in the cosy cabins. Each cabin is set out dormitory style with bunk beds. The cabin supervisor sleeps in an adjoining room. Meals are taken in our Nosebag restaurant. Hot, cold and vegetarian menus are available.

We will hold a waiting list for any weeks which become oversubscribed and will contact you if a space becomes available.  In order to be placed on the waitlist you need to send in a completed booking form and they will be held in strict arrival order.

REMEMBER TO BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT

BOOKINGS FOR THE FOLLOWING WEEK CLOSE AT 5PM ON THE TUESDAY PRIOR

A normal holiday week caters for around 30 children per week.

* During the very busy summer weeks (i.e. when all the UK schools are on holiday – from end July) we can only accommodate boys on certain weeks. Girls are also welcome on these weeks. We find that boys enjoy their holidays much more if there are other boys here for them to socialise with.  The boys room sleeps 8.

We regret that we cannot reserve spaces without a booking form and a deposit, and any spaces available will be allotted on a strictly first come first served basis.

FAQS

Is there availability for the week I want and how do I book?

Places cannot be held without a completed booking form AND a deposit of £100 per child, per week, or the full fees if less than 30 days to arrival date. All spaces are allocated on a 1st come 1st served basis. If the week becomes full before your form arrives, you will be notified and placed on a waiting list if requested. Acceptance will depend on availability of beds and / or horses. Those wishing for a Non-Residential space with their own horse / pony may well be able to jump the queue.

Completed forms may be emailed to holidays@wellington-riding.co.uk

Once your form and deposit have been received and processed, confirmation will be sent out via EMAIL, for this reason please make sure your email address is included on the form and printed clearly. In an effort to be more environmentally aware your invoice and parent pack will also be sent out via email approximately 6 weeks before your holiday date. Please let us know if you do not have email facilities and need this to be sent out as a paper version.

What are the arrival and departure dates and times?

A Full list of this years’ holiday dates and availability can be found on our website. Our Residential holidays begin on the Sunday afternoon (after 3pm) and end on the following Saturday (before 10am). Please note that we cannot ‘check in’ children until after 3pm on the Sunday as the Supervisors do not start work until then. Unsupervised children arriving earlier (because of flight times for example) will be required to wait in the clubhouse until the supervisors arrive to start their shift. Please note we do not provide food for the children before 5pm on the Sunday.

Where do we check in?

On arrival, families should report to the clubhouse / reception (you can leave your luggage in the car for now), to sign the children in. The clubhouse is at the end of the car park – follow the signs.

Can my child bring her mobile phone with her?

We prefer children to leave valuable items like mobile phones, ipods and gameboys at home, but if you would prefer them to bring their phones with them they need to be handed in WITHOUT EXCEPTION, on arrival. The children will have access to their phones at lunchtime, but at all other times they will be kept safely in the office. If you are having trouble contacting your child, you can call the office during working hours on 01189 225379 for us to get a message to your child to call home; or; if it is an EMERGENCY, and out of office hours, the Supervisor has a mobile phone: 07826 708081. Please don’t worry if you haven’t heard from your child, it generally means that they are having far too much fun to remember to call!!! Pocket money will also be looked after in this way and should be handed in on arrival.

How much pocket money do the children need?

£30 is plenty of cash for the children to bring with them. All they need cash for is for sweets or drinks that they might want to buy, or for any bits and bobs they might like to purchase from the tack shop. Alternatively, parents can authorise tack shop purchases on their credit card (please make sure you set a limit! and that we are notified if your card is changed between your booking and the holiday date). Any entry fees arising i.e. cinema etc are included in your booking fee.

What is the difference between Residential and Non-Residential Holidays?

Residential Holidays: Children booked for a Residential holiday arrive (as above) on the Sunday afternoon and stay until the following Saturday morning. The holiday is inclusive of all meals, evening activities etc, and the children are fully supervised at all times. The children sleep on site in cabins.

Non-Residential: On a Non-Res holiday, the children do not stay on site with us, but travel in and out on a 9am-5pm basis. This is suitable for children who live locally, or if parents and children are staying at a local B & B / Hotel (I would recommend this for the very young child – we do take children from 7 years old, but find that they get extremely tired by day 2 or 3 due to the fact that late night ‘chatting’ keeps them awake!). Lunch is included in the Non-Res package, as are all the riding activities that the Residential children take part in, and, by prior arrangement, children can be dropped off earlier or collected later to facilitate parents working arrangements. , Children should be delivered to the clubhouse each day and ‘signed-in’, and collected again from the clubhouse and ‘signed-out’ by a parent. PLEASE NOTE: It is extremely important that we have been told by a parent if someone other than them is going to be collecting their child.

Evening meals and evening activities are not included in the regular Non-Res package, but if you would like your child to eat with the Residential children in the evening or to join in the occasional evening activity, we may be able to arrange this for you.

Because of other commitments I may not be able to drop off / collect my child during the normal times, is this a problem?

If your arrival and/or departure dates are different from the normal, please explain why. We may be able to accept children for an extra weekend or day either before or after their holiday, but this will depend on bookings – please note on your form and we will do our best to accommodate.

When could my son come on a riding holiday?

Due to horse-riding being such a female orientated sport in the UK, and the fact that the accommodation is dormitory style, it can be very difficult for us to accommodate boys. For this reason, during the summer months we can only book boys in for Residential holidays for either the first 3 weeks of our season (before the English State Schools break up) or for the specially designated ‘boys’ weeks. Girls will also be accommodated during these weeks. Availability for other weeks during the year depends on bookings – please contact the office for information.

My daughter is now 12, but turns 13 during her holiday, do I pay the higher or lower age bracket for her holiday?

If your child turns 13 either before or during the actual holiday, the higher age bracket costs will apply.

Where do the children sleep?

The children stay with us on site, in one of our custom-built cabins. The cabins sleep 30 children dormitory style with bunk beds. There isn’t an awful lot of storage space within the cabins, so please, pack light! Cabin 1 has 14 beds in one large room and normally houses the 12 and unders. There are 2 toilets and 2 shower cubicles in this cabin, as well as a separate room for the cabin supervisor. Cabin 2 is split into 2 rooms, one has 8 beds and normally sleeps the 13-14 year olds, and the other room sleeps the oldest 8 children. This cabin also has 2 toilets and 2 shower cubicles and a separate room for the supervisor.

Of course, there are always exceptions, and if I have 14 x 13 and 14 year olds they may be placed in Cabin 1, while the younger children are in Cabin 2. We are, however, quite strict about keeping the younger and older children separate. The younger children will go to bed earlier, and we are also well aware that a 16 year olds’ topic of conversation may not be suitable for a 7 year olds’ ears! Boys are not mixed with girls unless they are of the same family and are happy to share a room.

Tell me more about the cabins….

Our accommodation is basic but totally suitable for this type of outdoor activity holiday – believe me, plush carpets don’t stay plush for very long once children have traipsed in and out with their muddy boots! Both cabins are fitted with Intruder and Fire Alarms, and our specially chosen supervisors are qualified in Child Care, Child Protection and First Aid as well as having a clean DBS check. All meals are taken in the clubhouse.

What about Insurance?

Legally we are no longer able to recommend or include Insurance as part of our holiday package. When searching for travel insurance for one of our children’s holidays, please make sure that the insurance covers ALL aspects of horse riding, i.e. show jumping (even if your child is only at the level of stepping over a pole on the floor), cross-country jumping, hacking AND competition i.e. the Friday show. Insurance should cover personal accident and injury, as well as a cancellation clause.

Please note that as a business Wellington Riding is fully compliant with all necessary Public Liability Insurance as well as being BHS (British Horse Society) and ABRS (Association of British Riding Schools) Approved.

Please provide evidence of your insurance to the Junior Holiday coordinator before the start of the holiday. This can be done by post or email: holidays@wellingtonriding.co.uk

How many children are there in each riding group?

Riding groups are divided up according to ability. All children are assessed during their first ride on a Monday morning and are put in to groups of usually no more than 8 riders. There are normally up to 5 riding groups per week.

Please, please, please don’t read too much into the group that your child is allocated. Every week the levels of the groups are different depending on bookings, for example a child happily jumping 2’ 6” may find herself in “Pink” group one week, but on another week, might be in “Blue” group or even “Red”. These colours are random every week.

If my child wants to visit with a friend, can they stay together?

As a rule, children are divided up in cabins according to age, and in riding groups according to ability. We can be flexible as regards sleeping arrangements if a slightly older child is coming with a younger friend, i.e. the older child could stay in the younger cabin (we do not normally allow 12 or unders to sleep in the older cabin). Please make sure that you write your friends full name on the booking form if you wish to be allocated the same dorm.

For safety’s sake if friends are of different riding levels, but they want to be in the same group, the better rider will need to move down to the group of the less experienced rider – we can only do this if that group has space. Even if 2 friends are in different riding groups, they will spend a lot of their time together during their days, i.e. until 10am, lunch time (between 12 and 2pm), and all evening after 4pm.

Letter Published in Pony Magazine 2013

“My sister and I went to Wellington Riding for a riding camp after reading about it in the magazine. Charlotte rode Crackers, the same pony that the winner of the competition in PONY rode. He is a 14hh chestnut pony with a snip and a white spot on his bottom. I rode Tobias, a dark bay cob with a wide blaze. Tobias and I came 4th in tack and turnout and 4th in show jumping out of 8 on the show day, which I was really pleased with. I really enjoyed the week – one of the best moments was jumping 3 foot 1 in the chase me Charlie (putting us joint 3rd) and coming second in block elimination. Although he was definitely lazy at times, he taught me loads about riding different ponies and gave me confidence to jump higher than ever before! It was sad to say goodbye at the end of the week but we have lots of good memories, and wanted to say thank you to PONY for telling us about Wellington in the first place!”

***

“Just wanted to thank you for the fabulous week C…  had with you. She came back home over the moon and she is already thinking of a next time with you.

 On the show day I was very impressed by the teachers, how nice they were to the kids, making them feel confident on their exercises and making the parents feel relaxed.

 You have really created a super nice school and we look forward to join again”

“I wanted to thank you and all the lovely staff at Wellington for the wonderful week P…. experienced with you. She had a truly amazing time and is already trying to arrange a weekend ride with a friend. I can also see the holiday camp becoming a yearly event!

“I want to say a huge thank you to you and your team for the wonderful time you gave C…  last week. She couldn’t have sounded happier when she telephoned us each lunchtime, and it was so impressive to see how much progress she made in her riding on Friday. She also made some good friends and she is keeping up with them via Facebook.

As a Child Psychologist I was incredibly impressed with how you organised all the girls and how well they all got on with each other.

Neither C…  nor M… a had a single area of complaint. They enjoyed every minute of it all.

Thanks again, and we very much look forward to booking the next holiday.”

Dear All at Wellington Riding, I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you all for the wonderful weeks holiday which our daughter, G, enjoyed over the recent half term, she had an absolute ball at Wellington.

She is pony mad and so she was in pony heaven for the whole week.  She made lots of lovely new friends and her riding has really improved too which is a bonus.

The set up at Wellington is really great – as a parent there is a real sense of security in the knowledge that the children are happy and well looked after.  The children are taught all aspects of riding and stable management at a very high level.

Many thanks to you all for making G’s holiday really special.

Suggested Equipment

Optional

Pocket money to cover sweets, gifts, etc. is required. £30 per week should be sufficient to cover this. Pocket Money should be handed in on arrival for safe keeping and your child will be given time to spend their money on a daily basis. Excursion costs are included in the holiday price for 2016.

Where appropriate, please provide in writing any information concerning medical conditions and medication currently being administered.

If you feel your child may need to take medicine during their time with us please bring this with you for their holiday.

Telephone

We would be grateful if you would refrain from telephoning your child, as experience has shown that children settle in better if undisturbed by personal calls, especially in the first few days. It is also difficult to get children to the telephone during their activities which are held in different parts of the Estate. Our Holidays Co-ordinator is available if you wish to ask about your child or check on their safe arrival. Normal office hours are 9.00 am – 5.00 p.m. Office numbers are 01189 225379 or 01189 326308. The Cabin Supervisors also carry a mobile phone at all times out of office hours, but this number is for EMERGENCIES ONLY PLEASE: 07826 708081

Refunds are not made.

In the event that guests have to cancel within four weeks of the start date of their holiday, fees are due in full and no money will be returned (see insurance above).If guests wish to change the date of their holiday, notice must be given in writing at least four weeks before the start date of the holiday. We will endeavour to find and offer another available and acceptable date within the current year. If such alternatives cannot be accepted within the current year, all payments will be retained to defray costs of the cancellation (see insurance below.) An administration fee of £25.00 will be charged for each change made. Failure to provide required notice in respect of cancellations or changes to holidays will result in all monies being forfeited.

Cancellation Insurance

It is essential that clients are covered by a fully comprehensive activity holiday insurance. Unfortunately we can no longer provide this for you. When considering your insurance, please ensure that horse riding, including jumping, is covered by your policy. Please provide written evidence of this policy before the start of the holiday.

Discipline and Responsibility

Living alongside and mixing with other children is a valuable part of the holiday experience and we try to ensure that everyone is included. Every child wishes to enjoy their holiday and we keep a close check on teasing, bullying or any other anti-social behaviour that may spoil an individual’s enjoyment. Our experience over the years means this is rarely a problem, but please tell your children that they must speak to an Instructor or Supervisor if this should occur. If your child informs you of a problem, please contact the office so that we can take immediate steps to remedy the situation. When necessary, we will be firm with children who are affecting the enjoyment of others. If problem behaviour is persistent or serious we will contact the parent or guardian. We reserve the right to send any child home immediately at parent/guardians expense and to charge for any costs incurred. No refunds will be made for any children sent home for behavioural reasons.

Important Hat Updates For 2016

Due to a change by the European Commission regarding EN1384 and BSEN1384 no longer being an accepted standard, all hats which ONLY meet the standard EN1384 or BSEN1384, with or without a kitemark, and do not comply with another standard from the below list, WILL NOT be permitted for use at any BHS Approved Centre.

Hats which bear EN1384 or BSEN1384 ALONG WITH another standard from the below list, will be permitted. For example, BSEN1384 & PAS015 (1998 or 2011) along with the Kitemark would be acceptable, but not BSEN1384 on its own.

Hats should also ideally be Kitemarked. The Kitemark is a quality assurance mark and is the registered trademark of the British Standards Institute (BSI). It can only be affixed to products certified by them.
