Offaly Ireland

A warm welcome awaits you at the lovingly restored equestrian center just one hour from Dublin. Enjoy your days pursuing healthy outdoor activities, returning to roaring log fires, the best of Irish food, and a relaxing evening.
The Equestrian Center offers excellent tuition with the use of both indoor and outdoor arenas. Twenty-five horses are ready and available for all different levels. Novice and advanced riders will find their perfect horse for their holiday. One of the best equestrian vacations in Ireland, with lots of horse riding available in all disciplines, particularly show jumping, cross-country, or dressage. Here you will enjoy wonderful horse riding facilities, including a great range of challenging cross-country fences, but also catering for the needs of a complete beginner.
There is an extensive cross-country course of over 130 obstacles on the 380 acre farm. They range from simple logs for those who are only starting out at jumping to an  Intermediate Horse Trials event course.
We know that the vast majority of riders do not aspire to compete at very high levels, but nevertheless enjoy jumping cross-country for fun. We have lots of small logs and simple jumps for those who want to just have some good times on horseback. Often people spend all their time training in an arena to show jump, however our cross-country course is an ideal way to do lots of diverse jumping and have plenty of excitement and learn some new ideas along the way.
We also hold competitions known as "Hunter Trials" in the Spring and Autumn.  This is simulation of hunting conditions where the competitors run over a marked course . They are let off at timed intervals and the least faults in the best time is the winner.  This is a great competition for novice cross-country riders with the classes as follows: Pre-novice (2ft3in jumps) Novice (3ft jumps) and Open (3ft6in jumps).
The riding center enables you to stretch yourself that little bit further than ever before. Alternatively, if you just wish to do some gentle riding, we have many interesting and relaxed rides around the farm that you will enjoy. Simply trek around the farm and country lanes at leisure. Trail ride through the beautiful Slieve Bloom Mountains and end the day with a sumptuous meal followed by a quiet drink in front of the fire.
