Camp Necessities


Also if ponies have any vices or problems, e.g. crib biting, wind sucking, weaving, stable-walking, etc. it is essential that we know about it, as you may be asked to take your pony home at night time if this is the case. Please remember to worm your pony before camp. Read the section on worming in the manual of Horsemanship. Please check your Pony’s Shoes and have him / her shod for camp. Passports and flu vaccinations must be up to date for ponies to be admitted.
