I booked a ride with Roger not expecting to be the only rider. Had a lovely ride into the surrounding hills chatting about Irish history, past and present. I rode a well-mannered horse that was better than I have been on for a long time. Book your ride into the real Irish countryside you can only see from horseback.

If your wish has always been to canter with a horse throgh the green and boundless Irish pririe, you are in the right place!!!
I've ridden just 6 times before, but I was able to canter with their quiet horses, and even for my girlfriend, that is more expert than me, was a great experience. So it doesn't matter how good u're at riding, just enjoy your experience!!!

This was a great experience. Ireland is so full of beautiful scenery that you can enjoy so much more on a horse. Roger was so amazing. He took the coat off his back to give us because we were cold! my family & I are so grateful for his help along the way & in pointing us in the right direction to go afterwards finding us a place to stay the night. I loved the horses & would definitely go back again. Thanks Roger & Tom!

I was passing through Connemara and missing my own horse. Roger was able to book me in at very short notice, assessed my level of experience and matched me with Bagel, a grand horse for the job, and a lovely friendly guide. We rode along quiet roads, green lanes and to the top of the mountain with stunning views. We enjoyed many a fast canter where we could and had a fantastic trek. Ponies well cared for, (plenty of water available), tack in good condition, all levels of experience catered for. Knockillaree comes highly recommended.
