About Pony Camp for Kids

'Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world' - Josephine Demott Robinson

'Put your hands in the air and step away from the Play Station.' Getting young cowboys and cowgirls to release the control panel of the latest rodeo game may seem as realistic as getting away with substituting an organic brussel sprout and spinach purée for a chocolate fudge milkshake. The good news for all parties concerned is that a pony camp has all the fresh air and exercise (that would be the brussel sprout and spinach component) served up undetectable in a double thick coating of fun and adventure (the yummy chocolate fudgy part that makes it go down a treat).

The little village of Kaapsehoop (Cape's hope) has given parents hope ... and a little rest and recuperation - after all it is vacation time. This village that lies between mountain ridge and forest plantations provides contours, camping, gullies, streams and nature in an environment that is home to wild herds of horses mountainside.

A fully supervised and guided pony camp begins at the hand painted wooden sign that swings at the entrance to the ranch on Monday morning and ends at the same signpost at lunch time on Friday - but the stories of branch swinging; tree climbing, cave discovering, stream swimming and pony gallivanting will last another whole week. Kids advance their social skills interacting in outdoor games and activities as well as learning to straddle a gentle natured creature that, unlike Fluffy the family Maltese, is supposed to be ridden. Bring torches and bedding and tuck-shop money, leave all electronics behind.
