We were able to book a 90 minute ride the evening before we wanted to go. Roger was great and provided us with plenty of local lore as well as a great lunch recommendation, horses were very sweet and the ride was just challenging enough to keep it interesting! Would definitely do again!

Roger was so helpful and flexible - fitting us in on short notice for a pony trek with our first-time 7 and 8 year old riders. The ride was amazing - great ponies that were just right for the kids, helpful guidance, and beautiful scenery. Overall a great experience.

We arrived in the morning while it was booked in the afternoon and Roger managed to let us ride at the moment we arrived.

Roger and his family took the girls out and gave a fantastic lesson while trekking through an amazing countryside. The girls really enjoyed it and are looking forward to going back. Highly... More

I took a 2 hour trip for intermediate/advanced riders and was very happy with it. Roger is knowledgeable about the area and has a good storytelling approach to guiding. The horses were in great condition, appropriate for the experience levels in the group, and all Irish breeds (Connemara and Irish Tinker), making it a pretty purely Irish trail ride! Roger... More

Great moment with Roger. Did his best to give confidence to our younger daughter, gave us plenty of explanations about the landscape, how it was built throughout the years and so on. One of our top 3 moments this 2016 summer in Ireland. THANKS!

we had a great tour on the horse back. Roger was very friendly and told us a lot more about the history. We went with the 5 of us and all were unexperienced. the tour last much longer than we had agreed and it was the same price. We would recommend it. Even for me it was nice to do... More
