IMPORTANT FOR UNACCOMPANIED CHILDREN :
All clothes, bed kits and objects of personal use (riding caps, boots) should be marked with first name and first letter of the last name of the child
It is best to use a textile or waterproof marker If any item is left behind this will make it easier for us to know who it belong s to.
Children should participate in the packing of their items, so they know what they are taking. Please do not bring valuable objects. If using medication, please do not forget to bring it.
Money for buying things in the canteen can be brought in a closed envelope with the name of the child and the quantity and should be given to the monitor on arrival
The use of the riding cap is mandatory for all and a protective vest for showjumping lessons for those under 18. We have some caps and vests in different sizes available for beginners, who do not have their own riding gear yet.
The registration form for minors should be printed and signed by the person legally responsible for the child and handed over to the monitor on arrival. Without this form a minor can not participate in the activities.
