Is your daughter or son crazy about horses and ponies? That’s right, so are we! And so are our farmers. FarmCamps is a great place for pony fans, because at many of our farms you can cuddle ponies, take riding lessons or have your own grooming pony for a few days. At some farms you can also bring your own horse or pony. So there are plenty of possibilities! Our horses and ponies are eager to meet you. You will find all our horse and pony options below… So you and the kids can take your time to see what you like best! Are you ready for it?
Then go for the pony package! The package for children who like to ride a pony and play and cuddle with a Shetlander every day. You will be ridden on a shetlander pony (B, C, D or E). A unique experience for every pony fan.
Become a real pony pro with the Pony Diploma Package. The activity for all children whose pony love is starting to take serious shape. You will learn everything about horses and ponies in a number of lessons. From pony care to riding a pony. And the best part? Every lesson you get to ride a pony yourself. You take rides in the indoor or outdoor arena. At the end of your stay, you take an exam where you show your parents what you have learned.
When you are little, life is not always fair, because you are not yet allowed to do everything. And if you love ponies then it’s not always nice. And sometimes you can get a bit angry with mum and dad. That is why we have the ideal solution for the little ones: the cuddly pony! You can brush, groom, feed and hug this cuddly pony all you want, of course! Ideal for little horse lovers!
At many of our farms (FarmCamps De Smulhoeve, FarmCamps Five Star, FarmCamps Fleur Stables, FarmCamps De Buitenhoeve and FarmCamps De Bosrand) you and your parents can take wonderful walks through nature with the ponies. The ideal compromise for parents who like to go out and children who prefer to stay with the ponies. Recognisable?
Did we hear that right? Do you have your own pony or horse? How lucky you are! We understand that you like to take your faithful companion with you on holiday. No problem: at many of our FarmCamps farms you can bring your own horse or pony.
For months and maybe even years you have been asking for it: you soooo want your own pony! Until now, your parents haven’t really given in. A holiday at FarmCamps is the ideal solution. In fact, at some farms it is possible to have your ‘own’ pony during your holiday to groom, ride, brush and cuddle. A holiday with your own pony, how much fun is that? This is all possible at our farms FarmCamps De Smulhoeve and FarmCamps Fleur Stables!
Did you know that there are some very good and sweet instructors walking around at our FarmCamps farms? The ideal opportunity to take a riding lesson (or several!) under the watchful eye of a qualified instructor. From beginner to experienced rider: all horse lovers are welcome!
Hey, we haven’t forgotten about you guys! There are obviously horse lovers who are not so little anymore. Do you enjoy riding horses yourself? Taking a lesson? Adults can also indulge their horse passion at some horse farms. From experienced rider to ‘it’s been a while’. It’s all possible. Check out the options here.
You can camp in luxury on FarmCamps farms in a real glamping tent. Our tents are completely furnished and fully equipped. Good beds, a nice sofa, a kitchen with gas cooker and espresso machine. Find out more about our tents here.
Our farmers are the nicest in the Netherlands. They have been specially selected for their enthusiasm and are ready to tell you all about farm life. The farmer and farmer’s wife often have young children of different ages as well, so it is always fun on the farm!
Camping on a farm is fun for both young and old. Whether you go for a midweek or just a weekend. There is plenty to do! While the children are out and about with the farmer or farmer’s wife or playing with their new friends, parents can go running, cycling or finally read that book.
Camping on a farm is of course a unique experience. You wake up among the cows or horses (or both!) and really get the chance to experience Dutch farm life to the full. From feeding the animals to making cheese.
Is the weather a bit worse? No problem! There are lots of games in our tents. A good time for a game marathon in the tent! Is your holiday really about to fall apart? Then take advantage of our Fine Weather Guarantee and rebook your holiday for free.
