Stables are located directly behind Arnold's Hotel. had a week's riding holiday here and a large choice of horses to suit all abilties. Riding out on beach is excellent. Staff very attentive and safety conscious. They have boots and hats for hire as well.
Would recommend

My wife loved her Connemara pony. Perky lived up to his name. Never tired, nimble and surefooted. We spent 4 days riding a variety of beautiful scenery. Staff balanced the fun and speed with the capabilities of the group so no one was bored or overwhelmed. Helen the owner picked the perfect horse for each person. Even if the weather is iffy or you only have a few hours, this activity is worth the time, regardless of your skill level. One of the beaches is only 5 minutes from the stable. If you have more time, the options for spectacular scenery are enough for a week of riding.
