Two of us went on a hack with maggie, both experienced riders which allowed us to do all things including gallop! Great time and good fun with good conversation the whole way round and great horses!!

We had a wonderful time today - in fact my very first time on a horse. My girlfriend booked a 3 hour picnic trip, and I have to be honest - I was considerably nervous about the thought of getting on a horse (for the first time). Everyone at Sheans were very friendly, and their horses perfectly trained. Kevin was... More

Danny, Mags and co provided another magical day out at Sheans Horse farm. Great relaxed organisation and as always horses were matched perfectly. If you're in North Antrim don't miss the chance to visit. Ian Blair

Today I had a nice 3h picnic trail hack with Sheans Horse Farm. Even it was quite cloudy and foggy the view on top of the mountain was amazing and would, with a clear view, surely be unique. The stuff was very friendly. The only thing I can complain about was the muddy part where we had to walk: very... More

I have been to Shean's several times during this past summer and the hours drive is definitely worth it! We have been led on different occasions by Aine, Aidan, Donal and Danny and everyone has been fantastic in ensuring we have had a safe and exhilarating day. Would definitely recommend a nice leisurely trek to enjoy the scenery or the... More

A friend and I went on an hours hack at Sheans last week and absolutely loved it! Everything about the place is great... The scenery, the horses, the staff. We had two great horses and were well looked after from start to finish. We had our own boots etc but this was all available if you needed it. The hack... More

My daughter and I have just returned from a walk, trot, canter hack at Shean's. We had a fantastic time led by Danny. The horses were all safe and responsive and we even had a short gallop which we loved. We will return and also recommend you to friends. Wendy and Lee

A group of three adults and two children visited Sheans on Sunday afternoon we all had a lovely day with fantastic guides as none of us had ever been on a horse before. A massive thanks to Danny and his team for an excellent adventure. We will most definitely be back but will have a longer session. Views were spectacular.
