Non-Horse Owner Camp

Camp designed for kids without their own horses.

Our programs pair our riders together with a horse to share through the day. The pairs and their horses are allocated in relation to their height, weight, and riding ability.

Many kids come to our NHO programs by themselves, we have found our system creates friendship and allows us the opportunity to provide more hands on horse experience during their stay in a safe environment.

Avoca Park offer amazing fun filled camps for both horse owners and non-horse owners during the school holidays!

Join our well trained team and meet some new friends – all while having some great experiences with one of our horses!

We utilise our state of the art equestrian facility (with an indoor and outdoor arena, mountain trails obstacle course and safe riding track).

All kids stay is in our 8 bed bunkhouse, decked out with bedding, TV, bathroom, full kitchen and lounge area.
