Horseback Riding Holidays

Horsemanship horse riding holidays for adults and families in the west of Ireland.

At Slieve Aughty Centre, thought and care have gone into creating a relaxing, peaceful place to re-energize your mind, body and soul.  Create harmony with your horse by working on the ground to communicate clearly with your equine companion.  Learn to transfer your ground work sessions to the saddle and ride mindfully.  Surrounded by more than 2,000 acres of Coillte-managed forestry and quiet country lanes, pass under the shelter of tall trees, through gentle flowing streams, and over scenic country roads, exploring different areas on horseback during treks.  In the evening, relax in comfort and style in The Three Towers Eco House and Organic Kitchen, quenching your appetite with homemade food and organic beer or wine.

Each day Slieve Aughty Centre provides three healthy meals, horseback riding in Ireland and opportunities to learn English, relax, or enjoy the surrounding sites. A riding holiday begins on Saturday with arrival and departure of guests and includes:

Accommodation at The Three Towers Eco House or Eco-Lodge,
Breakfast, lunch and dinner at The Three Towers Organic Kitchen,
4 horsemanship sessions, 4 arena lessons and 4 two hour treks,
Optional 15 hours English Language tuition at additional cost,
Access to other activities such as walking, swimming, golfing and more,
Riders are assigned horses and ponies by our knowledgeable staff and all guests prepare their own horses each day to gain experience caring for horses and to develop a relationship with them. The programme is designed to expose riders to different types of horses and ponies at an appropriate level of challenge.  Suitable for all riding levels.
