Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hard to beat a morning of pony trekking along a beautiful sandy beach in Connemara! As a family of 4 we are all novice riders, but the ponies and guides are certainly experts so were in great hands! We did the 1 hour loop an thoroughly enjoyed it.

We had an excellent time. My wife, three daughters and I, none of us very experienced riders, really enjoyed the whole ride. The ponies are so well trained they could do the loop by themselves. The guides were great. Riding along the Connemara coast is not to be missed,

Sincere apologies but I don’t recall the guide ( who told us this was the first time she was managing the business on her own as the owners were away)…..she was absolutely outstanding! From the get go, she was both welcoming & reassuring that as novices, we would all love the experience……& that we did. No clock watching, the leisurely experience provided us an opportunity to trot on the beaches, something I’d never have thought we’d do and it was clear their ponies are well used to carrying people who haven’t a clue!

Highlight of our Ireland vacation. Everything about this horse riding trek was perfect. We had perfect weather and perfect Connemara ponies to ride. Loved our trail guide and also the owner of this equestrian facility. The landscape is stunning. I hope to come back to Ireland for more horse riding adventures. The Irish people are so warm and welcoming. Absolutely love Ireland.

We had an amazing time despite the overcast weather. The staff was competent and friendly and the horses so well behaved, I had no concern for our safety. My 9 year old had never ridden before, and the guide made her completely at ease, so she thoroughly enjoyed herself. The beaches we visited were gorgeous, and seeing them from horseback was a different experience all together.

What an incredible afternoon. My daughter had the most amazing one hour trek on a beautiful Connemara pony. This centre is exceptional. So friendly and accommodating with a keen eye on safety and Covid measures. A huge thank you to Joanne who took my daughter on a lead rein trek and was very kind & friendly - truly made our afternoon. The trek on the beach is breath-taking. Pop this at the top of your list if you’re in the area. An absolute gem of a stables in a knock-out location. Very many thanks for a wonderful end to our holiday.
