“If you must go out in the rain...”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We had such a wonderful ride with Amy on September 25th! The weather was frightful (perhaps not by Irish standards), but once we turned away from the rain driving in our faces, we were much more comfortable. Here we were, all bundled up in our fleeces and rain slickers and Amy had just a jacket on. Youth! Your delightful and cooperative horses took us on the beach and in the tidal pools where we had lovely canters. After once around a big circle, Asim said “can we do that again?”. They all laughed at my mud-splattered face. No wonder Megan wanted to go into the lead! She’d have galloped on if I had let her. No mud when you're leading. We appreciated the offer of helmets, boots and chaps so our suitcases were a bit lighter...more room for souvenirs. As 4 adult, experienced riders, we thoroughly enjoyed our adventure.

“Breath-taking Experience”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

My 9 year old son and I went horse riding with Caroline in Eagle Rock twice during our holiday in Kerry recently. We were provided with Helmets and back protector for my son. We made way down to the beach with Derrynane House in the background. The horses Caroline selected for us were so trustworthy and safe. Caroline assessed our ability and once on the beach we did lots of gantering along the waters edge. An exhilarating and breath-taking experience which we would highly recommend.
