County Galway Ride

County Galway Ride
Connemara/Galway Ireland

This superb riding holiday takes place amidst some of the most beautiful countryside that County Galway is famous for. It is a land of rolling hills and green fields, divided by a latticework of stone walls and quiet country roads. It is a land rich in folklore, legend and archaeological treasures all waiting to be explored on the back of an Irish hunter or a pure-bred Connemara pony.

The varied terrain includes the Slieve Aughty mountains and large tracts of woodland. On the trails, there are opportunities to jump a large variety of natural obstacles, hedges, ditches and of course the walls for which County Galway is famous. All of these can be avoided if you would rather not jump. The program provides riding and jumping at a pace that can be varied to suit riders of different abilities. 

One of the highlights for more advanced riders and for those wanting to improve their jumping skills is the event course. The course was professionally designed to accommodate riders and horses of all levels. An international three day 2 star event has been held at the course since 2004 attracting riders from all over the world, including America and Europe. As well as the international standard fences, there are plenty of natural and man made fences that any rider will enjoy jumping.
