Point Ponies made sure we had a great ride. We're inexperienced riders. The way to see the real Ireland. Beautiful beaches. We rode among grazing cows. Very nice.

Sean was a kind host who easily accommodated 4 inexperienced riders. The beach trek was stunning and the horses easy. Riding boots and protective headgear provided. An amazing 1 hour experience.
