School holiday camps ...

Byalee's school holiday riding camps are world-famous ... at least in the Hunter!

There are cheaper camps around, but what price do you put on your child's safety? We are the most experienced, long-running, most established provider of holiday camps in the Hunter.

Dates for our spring holiday camps:
Tuesday, October 2
Tuesday, October 9

Drop your child off at 10am and collect them at 5pm. They ride in the morning, they ride in the afternoon. They are fed morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. They help feed the horses. They learn to tack up the horses and hose them off. They win lots of prizes. Their confidence grows - and they sleep really well that night!
You will need to book and pay to hold your child's place - be warned, we often have to turn away children so book early especially if you have a group.

Safety is emphasised and after running camps for more than 20 years, we know what works and what doesn't. We break at lunchtime and include a horsy DVD to give the kids' muscles (and the horses!) a break.

The cost is $110 per day per child. Please contact Ann-Maree Lourey on 0407 453 494 or email

Camps run rain, hail or shine and please note, payments are non-refundable, but a credit can be carried forward to the next school holiday.

Here's a testimonial from the mother of first-time campers:

'My two sons atttended your holiday camp last Tuesday, and I just wanted to say a huge thankyou to you and your team for making their first experience on a horse so positive!! They both thoroughly enjoyed the day, loved all the other activities you planned, but mostly they loved learning about how to ride and relate to the horses. They both said they had lots of time with the horses, and learnt a lot. So thank you very very much!'

And a testimonial from a mother after her daughter's first visit to Byalee's camps:

'It's a wonderful opportunity you provide for kids to interact with horses.'

And a grandmother's comment post-camp:

'Thanks for giving the little ones amazing memories that will stay with them for life.'
