Each weekday morning at the Horseback Riding Camp, we travel from our camp venue to the nearby Idranyi Riding Center, where riding instructors hold classes for our campers in small groups. The classes are based on skill level: beginner and novice riders get about a half-hour riding lessons each time, on a lunge, while more advanced riders get about an hour-long lessons with or without a lunge, inside a paddock. Advanced riders with cross-country proficiency* get to go cross-country riding for 60 to 90-minute sessions, with an instructor. In the remaining time campers also get to take part in other equestrian activities, finding out what it’s like to work with a horse daily. We take the trip from the camp to the riding center by minivan or car each day, Monday through Friday, which usually takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Afterwards, we get back to the camp in time for the second period of classes, so you can choose another one of our many different subjects for your second two hours.
* Safety notice: The campers’ riding proficiency is checked by the instructors on the first morning to adequately assign the most fitting group, keeping safety of the rider the top priority. Riding helmets and back protectors are provided by us, free of charge. For cross-country riding, a written declaration about the child’s proficiency must be signed by the parents. The minimum age requirement for cross-country riding is 10.
