I've enjoyed beginners lesson with my son here: horses are well behaved, safety ensured. Horses are well looked after here and yard cleaned all the time. However, some facilities for customers need improvement, mainly area where people change shoes. Would return for a trek, as Beata tought us well.

I had a very nice time trekking through the woods with Tim, the stable manager. He took care to check that I had expeience before going on one of his more adventurous routes. He pointed out the beautiful sights and there were plenty of places to let the horse take a good gallop. All the people in the stables were... More

My friend and I had really good time with guys in Killegar Stables. Really nice people working there, and they look after you, and make you feel very comfortable even if you aren't very experienced. No one is rushing you either. Horses are very pleasant and well behaved. Trek is the best way to see the scenery, but we will... More

It was a wonderful day and three people were out with us during the lesson, the instructor ( nice polish lady)... More
