HOLIDAYS & Sleepovers
Sleepovers are organized occasionally at Adagio. This is exciting for the children who ‘ put their ponies to bed’. After a fun-filled evening with games and good food, they make and sleep in the tents at the pony club with Caroline and Rudrika, under strict security arrangements and in a safe environment, only to wake up in the morning to start grooming their animal friends.
During school holidays, day camps or week-long camps are organized when children spend the whole day at Adagio. They not only get the chance to ride twice a day, but also to team up with their friends to look after their ponies and to learn about their feed, rest time and routine during the day.
Special camps for experienced riders
Special camps for senior riders are also organised, to work on particular aspects of their riding, e.g. jumping, dressage, endurance, etc. The riders are coached exclusively by Colonel PP Singh himself or by visiting foreign coaches.
CAMPS IN EUROPE with Olympic Riders
Some European camps have been arranged in central France near Paris and yet another one with the pony club and riding school of Rodolphe and Aude Scherer, also in France. Rodolphe is a 3- times Olympic rider for France in three-day-event (he was placed individual 4th at Athens and team 4th at the Sidney Olympics), who spends a fair share of his time travelling the world for coaching camps. Aude, his wife and also an international rider, runs a pony club and riding school next to Rodolphe’s professional stables in their hometown. Aude and Rodolphe welcome Adagio children for a week or fortnight of incredible riding and exposure to some of the best coaching and riding facilities in Europe. Their school can cater to the riding needs of children ranging from 5 years-old beginners on Shetland ponies to experienced and competing children or adults on horses.
Two more camps are in the pipeline, one in Athens, Greece and the other in Normandy, France in the years to come.
Annually, a European pony camp is organised during summer holidays in India for young children to grant them exposure and latest insight into the wonderful world of equestrian sport. There they explore, learn and interact with their European counterparts regarding the latest techniques, saddlery and equipment used for development of their riding skills. Over the years this has been an exhilarating experience for the participants.
