Horse Riding

If you’re mad about horses this is for you…

Our popular Horse Riding programme mixes tuition in Equitation with Stable Management and Animal Welfare.

Horse Riding takes place in approved Equestrian Centres close to Horizon venues and is available in Gurteen. Students groom their horse, feed him, and look after him. Being an experienced rider is not necessary. We have programmes to suit beginners, intermediate & experienced riders. All riders will do an assessment on Day 1 in the sand arena and progress from there. The more experienced riders will be granted the opportunity to canter and jump. Each day you will trek on all kinds of trails throughout beautiful woodland and open countryside. At the end of each week all participating students participate in the Horizon Gymkhana where they can put all their new skills into practice. Helmets will be provided but students are welcome to bring their own but must bring a pair of shoes or boots with a heel.
