During QLD school holidays we run camps at GCEC for children up to 17yo. Our member riders have priority in booking and will be able to secure their spots before camp registration is opened to non members. Bookings are essential. Caps are usually 2 and a half days; Tuesday and Wednesday from 9am to 3pm and on Thursday from 2pm - 5pm with an optional sleepover on Thursday night. Friday morning collection is at 9am.
Camp participants will enjoy the whole horse experience during camp - everything from taking care of your horse, how to properly tack your horse and all the security and safety associated with being with these magnificent animals ! Campers will also learn theory about horses that they will remember forever ! And of course there is riding, and pony games and, weather permitting a swim in the river with their favourite pony ! If they are ready, riders can work towards advancing their Canter level !

We organise onsite jumping competition every 4 or 5 weeks.
For the younger ones, it's a course with numbers and exercises to remember. There are judges, and at the end of the day, awards for all riders who have competed. It's an excellent experience for young riders and a great practise for our riders competing at Showjumping. We are the only riding school organising competitions onsite for our riders, and allowing them to compete without having your own horse. On competition day, we absolutely welcome parents and rider helpers !
We also take riders to competitions outside. Riders need to own their horse to be able to compete outside. There is also the option of leasing one of our school horses or ponies. Competition days are always great times for children who learn a lot thanks to the coaching we provide.
