    Great experience
    It doesn't get any better than riding a Connemara horse in Connemara Ireland. Got to see beautiful countryside along with a lot of history. Very reasonable for an hour ride. The Galway tourist office set this up for us.

    Great experience
    Had a great experience at Moycullen riding centre. Went as a group of first time riders but staff were excellent and put us at ease. The horses were great for inexperienced riders and we felt safe the whole time. The views on the ride were also stunning. Would recommend to anyone looking to do horse riding.

    A Must-Do if you love horses!
    This experience was an absolute delight! Michaela was friendly, patient and made the horseriding a joy! The scenery was breath-taking and the horses are absolutely beautiful! Sandra is the owner and just a swetheart! She has hired well-trained and experienced employees who adore her and love what they do. The animals are happy and it shows! I will miss my horse, Jessica! Get those snacks, Jess!

    Amazing experience
    Went on a beach trek with my mom and sister. I had very little experience in riding but everyone was very understanding and helpful throughout the entire ride. The horses were gorgeous and the scenery was stunning. Would definitely recommend for all people regardless of experience.

    What a wonderful experience!
    What a wonderful experience! Michaela was a phenomenal leader and ride coach for our tour. Her history on the land and area, to how she worked with the horses and eased me into my first ever ride. Was a great time and beautiful day for the trail! George was a funny horse to ride, playing follow the leader with Bobbie (horse). You can tell the horses are well loved and happy!

    Amazing adventure
    My ride was pre-booked. I was the only one on the ride with Tom and my horse Failte. Was a beautiful sunny day, the scenery was gorgeous. Horses were all well cared for. A plus as i have ridden all over the world and in some locations this is not always the case. I am older and an experienced rider but i just wanted a very leisurely ride and this was perfect. Would highly recommend

Booked a beach ride and expected to canter across the beach as their video showed. No we just walked whilst someone walked on foot beside us then we were told we could have a canter in a circle. I call that FALSE ADVERTISING not worth the money. Wouldn't recommend

Went out into the countryside with a few of my closest friends. The views were absolutely gorgeous, especially as someone who doesn’t get to see the countryside very often. The horses were lovely and well cared for, would definitely come again.

My 14 year old daughter was given an old horse that would not canter or trot. Even the guide could not get the horse to run. My daughter was very frustrated and disappointed. The guide kept yelling at my daughter like it was her fault the horse wouldn’t go. He had the riders canter in a big circle, like a lesson, and not along the beach as advertised. The guide walked with us and was not on a horse. The scenery was pretty but I did not get what I paid for. I wouldn’t go back here.

Lovely experience and great staff who are very knowledgeable. Would recommend. We'd do this again. It was a drizzly, damp day and we still had a wonderful time.
