Horseback Riding in Ireland
The magical charm of the Emerald Isle makes Ireland an ideal destination for horseback riding. We have a wide variety of riding vacations from jumping to trail riding which have been well tested and proven over the years. Hundreds of our clients have enjoyed them. Few countries revere the horse as much as the Irish and horseback riding is deeply woven into the culture. The Irish usually like their American cousins anyhow, but a common love of horses adds an additional bond. Irish horses like the Connemara are world famous and much sought after.
The rural countryside with its stone walls, green fields and rolling hills is very pleasant to explore trail riding in company with a good horse. There are miles and miles of open beach which are ideal for a gallop and the horses always love it. Of course the rich history of the country is everywhere to be seen dating back to very early times of St. Patrick and before when Ireland saved our Western Civilization. Try to read Thomas Cahill’s wonderful book, “How the Irish Saved Civilization” before you go.
