Take The Reins Camp

Take time out to focus on your riding enjoying some much needed time away from it all!
These camps take you back to the carefree days of time with ponies, staying away with friends, and just having fun! Take The Reins Camps are a way of enjoying a few days away with your horse in the beautiful Surrey countryside.

Add in a bit of Mindset training too and you've got everything you need to enjoy your time away. 

Based in an exclusive venue in Tilford, Surrey - Stockbridge Farm is only available to Pony Clubs and Flying Changes Camps.

What’s It All About?

Whether you are a Pony Club camp veteran or didn’t get the opportunity as a child, this is an experience you simply have to be a part of. We have the same awesome fun, no tack or stable inspections and perhaps a relaxing evening tipple here and there too.

Come and enjoy your precious horse time with like minded people and fabulous instruction. 

These Adult Pony Club style Camps are for you if you want to have some fun and some chill out time with your horse in a beautiful setting in the Surrey countryside

Your camp includes:

  • Large choice of group lessons and disciplines twice daily (polework, SJ, grids, knock down XC, full XC options) with jumping starting at 30cm up to 1m
  • Group ​Mindset theory session with Jenni to set you up for success
  • ​Daily down time in beautiful peaceful setting to chill out, hack out, or spend quality time with your horses and human friends⁠
  • ​Stables, loos, proper hot showers, kitchen and fridge provided (with plenty of room for a nice cool drink or two)⁠
  • ​Optional group social dinner nights on either Tuesday or Thursday⁠ (or both if you stay all week)
  • ​Goodies, discounts and expertise from our Sponsors & supporters too 

How It Works

You get to choose what group lessons you do to including options of polework, SJ and XC. Groups start at 30cm x-poles and go up to 1m. The beautiful farm has grass roped arenas with a full set of Show jumps, grid jumps and a large array of XC jumps including knock down xc, woodland xc and a fab and fun mini course. The site is on very well draining sand and the going is always good (no hard clay round here!).

You also get a group Mindset Theory session with Jenni to explore how to get the very best out of your time at camp and beyond. 

You get 2 group ridden lessons and down time each day. The hacking is beautiful and around the stunning sandy commons and lakes of Hankley and Frensham.

You stay in your own lorry, trailer, tent, caravan, campervan (or even a winnebago!) in a huge field that is used by the Pony Club for their camps over the summer. Everything on site is hired in with temporary stabling, loos and showers, big fridge and a large marquee for cooking, eating, drinking and socialising in. These camps are self catering and there is no hook up. So it really is Pony Club style fun and back to basics with both 4 and 2 legged friends.

We do have a group Mindset Theory session together but you must be confident in open spaces with other horses riding around you in different lessons. There will be a couple of optional social group dinner nights (on the Tuesday and Friday) but other than that you are left to your own devices to enjoy the camp – there won’t be a fully mapped hour by hour structure to it because when we have done this before it really is too much!

In addition to all this we will be getting our own Sponsors and Equestrian companies on board to supply goodies, discounts and expertise whilst you are here with us. 

You are welcome to bring freinds and family* as the Surrey countryside offers lots of things do see and do including biking trails, scuplture parks, golf, miles of beautiful walking, attractions and you are only short hop away from London for day trips too. 

*Please note – no unattended children at any time – they must be supervised by an adult on site. Extra people will incur a surcharge to cover water and electrics for showers etc.
