Main Camp

Somerford Camp 2019

This year’s main camp at Somerford was definitely the best yet. We had a weekend of good weather, a lovely group of riders and a team of horses that just got on so well together.

We had a range of abilities and interests with tailored lessons for those who did not want to get off the ground to those who most definitely did. Everyone enjoyed a bespoke combination of 4 lessons with great instructors. Those who only wanted to do flatwork had dressage sessions with Paul Davies and pole work sessions to add a bit of variety. The jumpers had Neil Fox and Lottie Williams providing an exciting combination of cross country schooling and show jumping at whatever level they felt most comfortable.

All riders had unlimited access to the fabulous farm with miles of beautiful scenery and optional jumps. I would happily spend the entire weekend just going around the farm ride!

Linda and Keith did us proud once again by providing fabulous food. We had a cooked breakfast to set us up for the day, a lighter lunch and then a superb evening meal to leave us truly full.

A combination of visits from old friends, a few silly games and one or two bottles of wine made for a couple of fun evenings! We had a few non- members who joined us on camp this year. They fitted in brilliantly and definitely added to the enjoyment.

Everyone had a great time and all seem to want to come again next year. If you want to join us, keep the weekend 29th-31st May 2020 free. Bookings will open soon.
