Roger offered us a very good horse riding experience. Horses were very calm, and the staff was very supportive of people with a limited (or no) horse riding experience. We had a lot of attention from them. We had a nice trek through Connemara ills. Thank you Roger!

I took my three children, all who are beginners. One of them fell off, in the experience. Roger took the time to help him get over the fear of getting back on and then walked back holding on to the reigns, while my 6 year old stayed on his horse. He wanted him to have a positive experience. It seemed... More

Wonderful trek experience from the town to the forest to the hills to the ocean- all in 2.5 hours! I rode Elayne and she was so sweet and easy- all the staff were very helpful too

Our family enjoyed our trek through the mountains with Roger. It was a misty, drizzly day but so beautiful up there. Our party of 5 included a 7 year old, but we were all newbies to horse riding. Roger made us feel very safe, gave such interesting commentary along the way, and we didn't want it to end. Thank you,... More

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic trek with roger a couple of weeks ago. The weather on the day we booked our trek was terrible so we had to reschedule for the following day and roger was very accommodating even though it was all very last minute. I am a reasonably experienced rider but it was my boyfriends first... More

Roger was a great guide, with lovely calm horses and ponies for riding. Many of our family hadn't ridden before including my 7 year old son. He did great on the back of a calm little pony called Juliette. Roger took us on a 1.5 hour trek up into the hills so we could look back on the cute little... More

Arrived at the stables and wondered where the horses were. Then as I walked passed the individual stalls up popped the heads of some very handsome Connamaras greys and dapples. Was greeted by Tom who showed me a very pretty grey Coonamara mare. She was having a last minute munch but was already for me, after bridling and stirrup check... More

Roger, the owner, did a fantastic job! The horses are trained exceptionally well. No matter which horse you get, they respond to your "lead" and that's what most establishments lack these days! I was in love with Con, what a fabulous horse! I enjoyed every second of the ride- we went on the 1.5 hrs trek which was so beautiful!... More

For a group of unexperienced riders, this was an amazing experience. I was not sure what to expect having never ridden a horse before but the staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Roger was an excellent guide who not only led us on our trek but explained so much about the history of the area and the land itself. This... More

Had a great riding lesson on a beautiful horse named Angel before the trail ride. Learned a lot. The views from the mountains were spectacular, and the ride in the waters was fun! Will never forget.
