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.

See Roger. Me and my wife are beginners and Roger found us the right horses (patches and Brendan) and took us on a great tour and had us laughing. He's a great guy and I'd recommend anyone in the area get some riding in. The rates are extremely reasonable and you'll have a blast

Lovely and well schooled horses who enjoy their jobs. Nice riding through country lanes and bridle paths to the lake. Splashing in the lake was great fun. Roger was friendly and great to talk to, and he did a wonderful job of fitting us each with a horse to suit our abilities, and catering for a wide range of abilities... More

3 of us newbies joined 6 others for a 90 minute group trek around Connemara. The horses were great and the scenery was outstanding but it was Roger and his team that made this a 5 star experience. Their patience and encouragement put us all at ease and we were all comfortable with trotting within 20 minutes! Great value for... More

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!
