For many young kids riding horses is their dream, and every year they wish and beg for their very own pony or mustang – depending on the cowboy/girl. Unfortunately owning your own steed is a particularly expensive prospect, so this year for Christmas, why not do the next best thing for your little rough-rider and send them to Kiah Park? Kiah Park is one of Queensland’s leading horse riding facilities and is offering some amazing camp experiences for your little ones these school holidays right here on the Sunshine Coast.
Established in 1978, Kiah Park quickly grew into one of the best horse riding facilities in Queensland, specialising in running horse riding holidays for children nestled within 315 acres of the beautiful Beenam Valley. Kiah Park hosts camps of all shapes and sizes from week long School based camps to long weekends and day camps during which your kids will learn a wide range of skills from riding, to horse care, to basic camping and bushwalking skills while having a ball exploring a wide range of activities. Starting off within the safe confines of the arena, your children will learn the basics of horseback riding, before moving out to the fields to refine their skills before moving on to some trail riding through the breathtaking valley surrounds before the whole experience culminates in a test of their riding skills in the form of a Gymkhana riding competition.
The facilities are truly top notch. Your children will be staying in cabins located along the ridge of the valley overlooking some truly breathtaking scenery. The cabins are separate for boys and girls, and camp staff stay with them in the cabins for safety and supervision purposes. Each cabin has double bunks and hot shower facilities, and if your little one has a friend coming to the camp as well, they can be arranged as roommates if they like. The camp is intended for children ages 6-12 and caters for all riding abilities so this really is the ideal way to let your little cowboys and cowgirls experience what it’s like to ride and care for their very own steed.
