Went for a first date with very little riding experience. We got going very quickly and I felt like I was in safe hands the whole time. It was very fun trek and the people with us were very friendly and sociable. Excellent activity would recommend to anyone who likes the country side.

I brought 4 children here for a ride. Booked in advance and allowed plenty of time to find the stables. Take the road signposted Ballykelly 2km from the main road. Kids played with the friendly dogs and watched the previous groups ride. I met Paddy the owner and he persuaded me to ride with the kids. I'm glad he did.... More

Myself and my husband went out on a lovely trek this week from oldcourt stables! We had a fantastic time! I hadn't ridden in almost 2 years and my husband had never even sat on a horse! We were given 2 lovely horses and Rachel our great guide brought us on a lovely hack up the roads and then through... More

A group of 6 of us went for a ride at Oldcourt Stables, and were thoroughly impressed by the experience we had. Paddy and his team were excellent in preparing us for our trek, especially the less-experienced riders amongst us, and wasted no time in getting us on our horse and setting us on our way. We trekked through the... More

We took our 10 year old twins and our 10 year old niece here on a recent trip to Ireland ( we did it two years ago and it was equally good this time around ) the kids loved it. I feel it's good value for money for an hour. It was busy when we got there but I have... More

We called Paddy while we were visiting Ireland recently and we were able to book a time for a nice 2 hour ride through the countryside. Our party of 4 were led by 2 guides through varying types of trails including: roads, open fields, narrow forest, thick mud and flowing streams. The natural beauty of Ireland was wonderful to enjoy... More

We went on a trek last Friday whilst on holiday in Wexford. Myself and my 4 year old son Henry were given the best service and our trek was just spot on. It was my little boys first time on a horse and Paddy and Jean were just so lovely. We are planning on re-visting the stables again in the... More

If you are going to ride on holiday, Paddy is the man to find you the right horse that suits your ability. Friendly stables set in beautiful countryside with safe horses and a menage if you prefer a lesson. There is nowhere better in the vacinity.

We had a brilliant hack, despite the rain, with fantastic gallops through the fields and a trek along the stream. We'll definitely be back to see Indie and Chain. And Paddy;-) Pete and Jayne West Mids.
