Forty-seven Years Of Horse Experience – At Your Service!

Giddy Up Pony Camp, A Place For Every Child!

Giddy Up Pony Camp is an excellent adventure riding camp where young riders learn to ride and take care of a horse, learn English as a second language, spend the summer romping around the beaches and having a great time on Prince Edward Island, in Canada. They learn to have confidence in themselves.

Riders ages 7-16 get to stay at the prestigeous 4 star B&B, Ar Dachaidh, in Orwell Cove or they can be day students, which ever best suits the child.  On site instruction in English as a Second Language, with a qualified experienced teacher, is offered for those requesting the ESL package. Youth riders from France, Thailand and Japan have registered for fun filled camps in the past. They have joined young riders from PEI, Connecticut, Quebec and New Brunswick making friends for life.

Mission Statement

We strive to provide each and every young rider with a wonderful riding experience based upon mutual respect, safety and fun.
