Drag Hunt and Pre-Hunting Holidays

5.0 (4)
3 days 2 nights

Our facility provides extended weekend drag hunting getaways from October through March. For those seeking an adventurous ride, you can trail the hounds across various terrains such as ditches, drains, walls, and drops. Beginners and intermediate riders can join the hunt alongside locals, and it's suitable for advanced children as well. Enhance your horsemanship by exercising the hounds and participating in guided practice on our cross country course. Additionally, engage in natural horsemanship activities to better connect with your horse.

Our offerings are family-friendly, and we gladly welcome non-riders, children, and those new to horseback riding. Amidst serene forest paths, you can enjoy activities such as golf, fishing, shopping, and more, ensuring there's something for everyone. Our center stands out as one of the rare destinations that cater specifically to children and novice riders interested in drag hunting holidays.

Hi! I am Esther. Originally from Holland, I settled in Ireland in 1978 with the dream of creating a sustainable place where people could come and be immersed in nature. I started with a small farm with goats and made cheese and yogurt. My daughter brought the first pony and her passion for horses soon become a main part of our lives as we began to welcome families for horse riding in 1989 and still do today!

    We went to learn how to ride horses and went on a long horse ride. The place is really pretty, with lots of different horses and things to do for beginners to advanced riders. The food at the cute café is yummy. Make sure you have enough time to enjoy it, don't rush!
