BHS Scotland Autum Camp with Sam York FBHS, Diana Zajda, Jen Morris and Richard Johnston-Smith

13-15 September 2024

Lindores Equestrian, Braeside of Lindores, Newburgh, KY14 6HU

Come and join us at our popular BHS Scotland Camp (adults only), exclusively for BHS Gold Members. Held at Lindores Equestrian, Fife.

With opportunities for riders to experience expert coaches, have some great fun with like-minded people and a chance of xc training, there is no reason not to join us!

Whether you are a regular competitor or a happy hacker, our expert coaches will tailor the camp to meet your needs. Attendees will be split into groups determined by experience and confidence levels of both horse and rider (novice rider right up to the more advanced). You can tell us more about yourself on the booking form, so please provide as much information as possible.

Riders will experience five hours of coached sessions across the weekend, delivered by our BHS Accredited Professional Coaches in flatwork and jumping. One of these sessions can be on the XC course provided weather conditions allow’. Please note ‘jumping’ is not a requirement to attend this camp. A more novice group can be formed to work on flatwork and polework. Our industry experts will deliver thought provoking sessions to get you fine tuning your technique with your horses’ happiness at the centre of your own improvement.

Whilst the emphasis will be on improvement and education and you will work hard, you will enjoy great facilities and excellent company - ask anybody who has previously attended camp.

There is already keen interest and as numbers are strictly limited, early booking is strongly advised. This Camp is exclusively for BHS Gold Members only (the higher level BHS membership category ‘BHS Friends’ are also eligible). Camp is limited to 32 people.

All of the elements above, including stabling, straw bedding, hay and catering are included in the cost of the camp which is £330 or £360 with a hook up (to cover the £30 hook up charge from Lindores). The cost of camp includes the option of stabling on the Thursday evening prior to camp starting.
