Anna's ridden internationally. She's really friendly and the horse I rode was her ex-dressage horse who, apart from being beautiful, was the best trained horse I've ever ridden. And Anna's mum insisted on getting the sun lounger out for my husband!

I went to Blackwater Stables during my first trip to the ring of Kerry, in fact it was also my first time ever riding a horse! Had a really enjoyable day and I learned a lot from the few hours I spent there. It was very well instructed and excellent advice was given
