Horseback riding is a healthy pastime that you're never too old to learn.
We can offer you two weeks of training intensively to learn Horseback Riding - Very private - Very quiet - On the countryside of Ireland. We are a family run equestrian establishment, consisting of a guesthouse accommodation with stable yard adjacent.
Our horses are well trained and suited to the complete beginner or the more adventurous rider.
Your day begins with a full Irish breakfast, or continental if you wish, then you and the stable hand / instructor will find a horse suitable for you. (He will be yours for the entire holiday).
You will groom your horse and get to know him in the arenas - indoor, for wet weather and outdoor for sunshine.
Lessons are conducted in the morning on a one to one basis with your instructor. You will be taught full care and control of your horse and also basic stable management.
Our instructors are fully qualified with the BHS certificate.
In the afternoon you are taken on an outdoor trail – possibly in a small group, suited to your riding ability. We have several trails to offer you, even a pub trail, for those over 18 years.
Riding generally ends at 4:30pm each evening.
One day each week we ride at the Atlantic Ocean over miles of sandy beach and Sundays we ride until lunchtime then guests are taken to local town for shopping, sightseeing etc.
You will learn at your own pace, you will not be asked to do anything you’re not comfortable with but after a horse riding holiday at Ardmourne House you will be amazed at how much you will have achieved..
May, June, September and October at the moment are perfect months for the complete beginner as they tend to be less busy than July or August.
