This camp has become a popular addition to the Abernethy list of options for residential holidays and is ideal for anyone who loves horses and is keen to work on their riding skills and hang out with new friends. As the camp has grown, so the age group has grown and this year we will be splitting the older and younger participants into 2 groups for all sessions, including the evening programme.
Check out our 2013 saddle club camp video.
If you would like to use this camp as your Gold DofE Residential, please inform the office team when booking.
As an Approved Activity Provider for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Abernethy Ardgour is also able to offer DofE horse riding expeditions at Bronze and Silver level, ask us for more information.

During instructed sessions, the Ardgour Riding Centre coaches and the Abernethy instructors will be tutoring the riding, stable management, kids cookschool and outdoor activities.
In non-instructed time, our activity group leaders will be supervising you and organising activities. From making sure you make a packed lunch and respect the centre and its’ facilities to joining in with the outdoor activities and challenges, our team will generally be looking out for you during your time away from home.
Give us a call and we can advise you on the best way to travel.
