Would just like to say a big thank you to Shean, Trea, Jason, Bubbles, Bud, Archie and Misty, just some of the characters we met this week at the Horse Farm. The horses were so calm and gentle and the humans were too. The kids enjoyed this immensely (wanted to go back the next day and the next!) We had... More

Can't rate it high enough, took time to check we were confident and competent before taking us out for a full hour hack. Horses were in good condition clearly cared for and loved. All first rate

First time visiting and certainly won't be the last. Unbelievable how the staff made you feel so welcome and comfortable from the very start, the Best Customer Service I have ever experienced. Riders are all assessed on their ability before going out and matched to a horse to suit, and level of Trek or Hack to suit experience. I done... More

I have never been horse riding before and my husband had not been riding for 40 years. We took our teenage and early 20 year old daughters with us who are advance riders. We had contacted Sheans horse farm prior to our visit to Northern Ireland and booked a trek and hack with them. After being assessed my daughters were... More

Had a great experience from the outset at Shean's. Maggie was incredibly good to us from the start - so much so that she gave up on eating her afternoon tea to sort us out when we showed up early! At the end, Maggie was there to greet us and make sure that we had enjoyed the walk around the... More

Coffee and scones with the McKinley family, before climbing the hills, to view breathtaking scenery, and watch a manual peat cutting operation in person. Smell that beautiful aroma of burning peat, life blood of Irish everywhere in the north. Staff was fantastic as 46 Seniors gamely attempted that climb to view history.

Great day had by my friend and I. Took the 90 min hack lead by Kevin and not a road in sight. Great staff, great views, great horses catering for every level. Definitely recommend and will most certainly be back! Well done Sheans!!!!

Took My nephews and friends. The owners were great with us all as most of us visiting today had no experience. They gave us clear instructions and gave us confidence. Highly recommend to everyone. My nephews want to go back tomorrow. A well run business
