Welcome Back to the British Horse Society Ireland Adult Camps at Castle Irvine Equestrian Centre (previously known as Necarne Equestrian Centre).
As you will know, if you have attended a British Horse Society Ireland Camp at Necarne before – this is a magical place to be. The old stone stable courtyard sets the scene and ambiance.
There are now four large arenas on offer – one of which is a beautiful walled garden and another a state of the art indoor riding school. All arena surfaces are excellent and have been recently renovated. Hacking is also still available in the beautiful estate and this is truly a treat in itself.
In 2022 we plan to have six camps available to British Horse Society members.
Camp 1:- 10 to 13 March 2022
Our accommodation options are as follows:-
As there is no onsite accommodation we have booked luxurious Air B & B accommodation with each person having his or her own room. All accommodation is within walking distance.
Bring your own horse box/lorry or caravan and make use of the hook ups available on site.
Be a day camper and organise your own accommodation and stabling.
Catering will be provided by Yvonne from Kitty’s Kitchen. The food was superb in 2021 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it with all tastes catered for.
Stabling will be in the Courtyard Stables; bedding and hay/haylage will be provided.
The programme for each camp will include two lessons per day on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Arrival day on the Thursday is used to settle in and perhaps go for a hack. There will be a number of talks or demos. And, of course, hacking in the estate will also be available to warm up or cool down your horse.
These camps are suitable for recreational to competitive riders and lessons are arranged to suit you and your horse. So don’t be anxious - the camps are a very positive experience for all who attend!
All Covid precautions will be in place in line with the regulations at the time the camps take place - to ensure we are all as safe as possible.
So who are the coaches?
Camp 1 will be the great team of Mark Robinson, BHS Stage 5 Professional Coach/BHSI and Mandi King, BHS Stage 5 Professional Coach
