County Clare has ideal countryside for horse riding year-round. Some of the most beautifully scenic riding areas are located here including the Green Roads of the Burren. Trail-riding for a few days or an entire holiday opens a wonderful vista, the joy of exploring the countryside on horseback with like-minded company and access to scenery known to few.
