DO YOU WANT TO ENJOY A SUMMER IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY BUT ALSO IMPROVE YOUR RIDING SKILLS? THE HAZELHORST IS THE PLACE TO BE THIS SUMMER!
Each and every summer The Hazelhorst is the place to learn, enjoy, relax but also have the time of your life with other camp guests of your age who share the same feeling for horses and sports. Our team of qualified staff members has a lot of experience with foreign guests and make an individual program with goals at the beginning of camp for each person. Depending on the period of your residency which is normally between 2 and 3 weeks you will improve your dressage/jumping skills as much as you enjoy the relaxing and the time with your camp members.

During camp we offer a several workshops, clinics and training sessions but also time to enjoy the nature by riding through the countryside in one of the national parks which are near to our accommodation. During the summer months we organize camps for a period of 8 weeks continuously. Based on the needs of our guests, we can make a custom made proposal for everyone. We accept children in age groups from 7 till 17 years old. During a camp period (one week) we accept a maximum of 30 guests. In consultation with our foreign guest we can provide transport from the airport (Schiphol, Amsterdam) to our stables.

CAMP PROGRAM & (DIFFERENT) LEVELS
Our guests will ride twice a day; one dressage and/or show jumping training and one tour through the country side. The accommodation of The Hazelhorst lies directly next to a large national forest park with extensive riding possibilities. Every week we compose training groups of a small number of students, whose riding level and wishes correspond to one another. This because of the fact to give focused and interesting training sessions for all of our guests.
