The trek was nice and full of great information on the area. Half way through we started going off trail and that... More

We had a greta ride out wirh Roger who was very knowledgable and shared with us interesting information about the area. The ponies are great and were suitable to the different level of riding. A beautiful way to see the Connemara area!

Roger was very accommodating as we only contacted him a couple of hours before our ride. He clearly loves his horses and knows a lot about them and the countryside. It was more a tour than a ride. The ponies were easily managed and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Stables are very modern and well equipped. Owner Roger very experienced, friendly and helpful. Excellent Sand Paddock for schooling your horse. Horses to hire for all ages and best of all the beautiful countryside for off road riding. Well worth visiting this centre for anyone wanting to do some trekking or livery your own horse overnight.

We contacted Roger via the Facebook page and booked an hours ride for the same afternoon. To say we were complete novices on a horse would be an understatement! I've had one bad experience on a horse and my other half had never been on a horse in his life! Roger and the team were great and took it all... More

We were a party of 7, which included a 5 year old and a blind,disabled man, who was treated exceptionally well by Roger...(Unlike another facility which refused to allow him to ride). There were a few first timers among us, but we were in extremely safe hands. So much so, that my 9 year old nephew conquered his fear of... More

We spent an hour trekking as a family of four. Roger and Carol made the experience relaxing and enjoying from beginning to end. We are beginners and they really put us at ease, my 3 daughter even fell asleep for a moment in the horse! Highly recommended.
