Youths learn all about horses, how to care for them and ride them correctly in a safe environment taught by fully professional coaches. Depending on the level of camp you choose, youths may ride the horses for 1 – 2 hours or more per day and find out about their equine pals with interactive learning sessions!

There are several options available to book such as full week camps, half day camps, participating on single days of camp and much more.

  • Fantastic fun and great exercise
  • Organised activities with qualified instructors & supervisors
  • Informative sessions with information about equine dentistry, chiropractors and farriers etc
  • Make new friends

Pony camps are an excellent way to develop riding skills and progress, are great for building confidence on and around the ponies, and a fantastic way to make lots of 'like-minded' friends in a safe, fun and controlled environment. These exclusive camps offer the opportunity for a select number of students to train with top equestrian coaches, explore the country side on horse-back and vacation in Ireland. Coolmine Equestrian has a rich history of horsemanship as well as a fantastic international reputation for providing youth horse sport camps. Ireland is known worldwide as Horse Country after all!

Through a variety of riding experiences children improve their riding, gain confidence and make friends for life. Campers share this experience with other like-minded teenagers from all over the world attending our residential summer camp. Many children return year after year to reconnect with previous campers and their favourite ponies.
We run pony camps during all school holidays.

The various pony camps below are suitable for children and teenagers aged between 6 and 18 years old.
