A trail holiday consists of 3 or 4 full days trail riding and 2 or 3 days of cross country jumping with an optional day off on Friday to visit local sites of interest or go shopping in nearby Galway. The trail ride is a full day away from the Centre, crossing mountains, stopping at peaceful lakes, or spending a full day riding through the forest with a picnic in the field. Riders return to the Three Towers Eco House each evening.
Although all the Irish countryside is beautiful, a trail ride to Lough Attorick promises to be the highlight of your holiday. Nestled amongst rolling hills, Lough Attorick is a remote natural lake with easy shore access and pockets of trees for shade, camping and picnicking. In warm summer weather, the lake is the perfect spot to go swimming with the horses as the bottom is soft sand and the water stays shallow for several meters before gradually deepening.
Don't want to do cross country or would like to add some lessons? No problem! Trail holidays are very flexible and can easily be combined with a training holiday.
