  • Stables: $30 daily for undercover stables and/or $15 daily for open-air metal yards. (stables & yards have a $50 Bond returned it left clean of all manure, hay & wet sawdust)
  • Fun Riders who want to attend without taking part in the Formal lessons, but doing other activities (Beach Ride, Trail Ride, Stockmans Challenge) cost is $50
  • Other Fees: Camping fees: $25 for a powered site or $15 for an unpowered site per night. Camp Incidentals: $20 per family contribution. 

FACILITIES:  Camp sites will have access to power and water, and will be close to the stables and yards. Plus the shops in Burpengary are a short drive away for all those last minutes items.
