Great weather great horses - so recommend the beach trek as it cleanses the soul! My partner was a beginner and he was trotted within minutes as he felt safe yet the horses still had some life in them :)

Thanks for an amazing first horse experience on the beach. one of the highlights of our 2 weeks following the Wild Atlantic Way. Helen and Niamh were the perfect companions for a T-R-O-T (it's important to spell it, horses are always listening LOL) Thanks again

The operator of this facility, Helen and her daughter Niamh are fantastic women. Their knowledge, abilities, friendliness and care are at the top of my list!! Would go again just to experience their world.

On a recent weekend break we booked a half an hour lead-out on the beach for our two children and took two horses out ourselves also. We all loved it - the horses (Lilly, Lollipop, Rio and Murphy) were calm and we all enjoyed the ride immensely. Definitely recommend.

I booked through Equitours and we stayed at Arnold hotel. The staff (Joe, Catherine, Charlie, Siobhan, Melissa, Sejo (probably spelled that wrong) and of course Helen & Niamh) were amazing. They were kind and helped my Aunt and I have a once in a lifetime experience. The views on the trail rides were unreal - and I have pictures to... More

Really enjoyed my first time riding a horse. Good day out with the family and the views you get even whilst on the half hour ride are spectacular!
