Beautiful location

Lovely area to ride and well trained horses for every level rider. Make sure you spend time walking around town after your ride- it's a beautiful location.

Our ride with the point pony trekking was a dream. Located right on the ocean, we enjoyed the beaches and towns as soon as we started out. As experienced riders we were able to enjoy a faster paced ride while less experienced riders in the group still got a great experience too. The horses were great and in good health.... More

They cater for all, levels and have an experienced staff,who... More

We came across this by chance, although I had seen Christine Bleakeney go horse riding from here along the beach. Sean was able to take me for an hour's ride at short notice, and it was lovely. The scenery was superb along the beaches. The pony was calm and well behaved. A great experience.

Two hours treking with Matilda was the highlight of my trip to Connemara. The scenery of course was amazing as the weather behaved throughout and horse riding on white sandy beaches was all that I had hoped it would be. Matilda was a fantastic host, experienced and did everything to make sure that both myself and a visiting friend had... More

They were amazing at the stables, friendly guide. The horses were healthy and happy. Words can't describe the experience, the views were out of this world. If you're in the area and enjoy riding you must go

This ride takes you to some of the most gorgeous coastline in the world. We had a fantastic guide, exceptionally well-behaved horses (with cows, dogs, the one car we saw). We had a group of varying experience levels and our guide catered to us all. The 3 hour ride was perfect - gallops along the beach, splashing through the waves,... More

Absolutely spectacular scenery and a wonderful guide. We went with two young kids and the trek and horses were ideal. They had a great time!

The Point Pony Trekking provided some nice Connemara ponies and an Irish draft horse for us. We had a group of mixed riding abilities, and they were able to provide appropriate horses for all of us. The landscape here was beautiful, and we had a great time riding along the beach. On a side note--they didn't respond to my email,... More

Even though the weather wasn't perfect but the experience wonderful. Very friendly staff, horses well behaved. Absolutely beautiful beach. Even if you are an amatour 1h trekking is good. Follow directions on their website because it's 'in the middle of nowhere '😉
