All curriculum is written and designed by Dhabian Academy
Equissentials is the perfect choice for individuals, groups and schools to introduce as either an ECA or part of their curriculum.
Camps are designed for children from the age of 6 to 16 years, and are run through each school holiday.
The camps are one and two week programs where the students will learn everything from how to read a horses body language to feeding treats and tacking up for their lesson. They will also learn what the horse eats, how they have been used through history aswell as where and how they live.
An ideal way to introduce your child to the world of horses or to increase their knowledge if they already ride, meet other children their age with the same interests and have all round fun.
The day is made up of classroom time, stable management and then riding. Once the riding is done the students have their snacks and then time to work in their work books before movie time.
Snacks are included in the cost, although we ask the parents to ensure that the student have a water bottle with them and a packed lunch.
All students should wear comfortable clothing, with long pants. Sturdy shoes and depending on the time of the year sun screen. (All summer camps are run only in our indoor arena).
Keep a watch on our calendar for the next available dates.
