If you asked a child where horses lived and he replied with “behind the TV screen,” it’s probably by time that you let him or her out of their protected space and back into the outdoors, unless you actually have a miniature horse behind your television set. Tear your little troopers away from the TV set and show them where horses actually live with today’s deal: a five day, four night pony camp for R1000 at Mazz Vaulting and Riding Club.
The five day and four night pony camp is an adventure unlike any other. Children will be whisked off to a land far away from the illusions of Dexter and Deedee and their pony-making laboratory to a horsey heaven. Besides being shown the vaults and riding, they’ll also be able to enjoy intimate sessions with the trusty steeds. The camps run at different times throughout the year including:
- 27th June – 01st July (normal camp all ages 5 – 17 sleeping indoor)
- 04th July – 08th July (normal camp all ages 5 – 17 of age sleeping indoor)
- 08th Aug – 12th Aug (Teenage camp 12 – 17 of age sleeping outdoor must bring own tent)
- 12thDec – 16th Dec (Teenage camp outdoor sleep ages 12 – 17 must bring own tent)
- 19th Dec – 23rd Dec (outdoor sleep all ages 5 – 17)
