“Great hacking experience”
Reviewed August 26, 2014

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.

“Short trip.”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

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.

“Excellent Experience for Beginning Horse Riders”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

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 to Galway, in a beautiful setting, this is a must experience for any horseman or women.

“Superb ride”
Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

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 and sightseeing.
Moreover Roger is pretty cool, easy to go whilst professional, I could learnt a lot all along the trekking.
Highly recommended!

“Fun Irish Adventure”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

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 and I enjoyed waiting for the bus in Oughterard at The Boat Inn afterward, as well. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun adventure in the west of Ireland.
