Good ponies friendly staff, great experience for my ten year old daughter. She was particularly anxious to try out one of the local Connemara Ponies and that's exactly what we got. Would recommend without hesitation.

Excellent experience. Last minute booking for me and extended family. Some experienced and some not so. With very small kids with little patience and adults scared to death of animals. All were handled very professionally. Loved it and it was worth every penny.

Roger was extremely accommodating to set up a ride for our 8 year-old daughter, and went above and beyond to make it enjoyable for her. Despite being on a horse only once before, Roger had her galloping within an hour. Getting to play with his kids and the family dogs made a great experience even better for us! Very convenient...

Excellente ride that the four of us could do on our own, a real VIP treatment! Even though we had one of our daughter as a beginner, her horse, rightly picked up by Roger, did the good job all along the 2h30 trekking, that is half an hour more than expected. The balad itself was a must, with beautiful landscapes... More

Had a lovely afternoon horseback riding in Connemara with Roger as our guide. The horses were beautiful and sweet. As a first time rider, I was made to feel very comfortable and had a lot of fun. The views of the countryside were breathtaking and climbing up into the hills on horseback is a memory I'll never forget. My friends... More

My husband and I wanted to do a bit of pony trekking whilst here in Ireland on our honeymoon. We are both complete beginners and Roger put us to ease straight away!

The horses are very well taken care of and are trained by experienced riders (not only used to do tourists rides). You can see that the guide loves what he does and that he is very knowledgeable about horse training. The ride through the mountains were challenging for me as an experienced rider but still a lot of fun with... More

Roger and Josh were great guides; patient, informative and helpful for two novice riders. You'll experience some great scenery including Lough Corrib and the hills of Connemara. A great experience.
