Worried about what your child is going to do this coming holiday? Why not treat your child to a fun-filled holiday experience at Zarivonco? With loads of activities and horse interaction your child will be well looked after while having the time of their life.

We welcome all children from the age of 2 years and older. There is a junior day camp option for younger children aged 2-7 years and a senior day camp for children 8 years and older. The younger/inexperienced riders will be led on a lead rein in the horse riding session. The remainder of the time your child will learn about horses, interact with them while grooming and caring for them and learn (and do) the chores of a stable yard. As the horses do need to rest as well, we have included educational game time, group games and even arts / craft sessions.
