You can ride to a local beach from our barn and straight into the Atlantic Ocean. We cater for all riders, first timers and the more experienced thrill seekers. Hunting holidays are organised from August to March with our local packs, plus we prepare riders for hunting in Ireland by organising hunt clinics.

We had an amazing experience riding on the beach in Galway! Wonderful horses and a warm and welcoming staff. James gave us a memorable experience, was charming company for our non-rider, and even took a video for us ! Highly recommended.
