Students should bring a riding hat of the correct standard, (Correct standard hats will be available to rent for €20 per 2 week course if necessary) a pair of riding boots, a body protector (optional but recommended), and pair of riding trousers. We also advise parents to ensure return luggage has been paid for, return check in and boarding passes are printed and that all documentation pertaining to the student's return flight is included in the Travel Documents e.g Parent's Indemnity Forms allowing the student to travel unaccompanied.

European Health Insurance Card

Students require an European Health Insurance Card (available at no charge from your local Health Office). Adequate personal and luggage insurance is recommended.

Other Requirements

Students will need an exercise book and pen for the English lessons. Students need a sufficient supply of clothes, including a light raincoat, as well as towels and a sleeping bag. For those who wish to play tennis a racquet is required and for those who wish to go swimming - swimming togs and a swimming cap is compulsory.

Mobile & Money

We also recommend students bring a mobile phone as it is the easiest way to keep in touch with home. Students should also bring some pocket money (at parents' discretion) for the excursion, sweets, etc and for a swimming or cinema trip if it is proposed.
