Visited sheans with my 8 yr old daughter and did a beginner's trek. The trek took us through the scenic countryside of ballymoney which was lovely. One of the staff stayed close by us for the whole trek to ensure that we were good and he chatted away and gave lots of encouragement to my daughter. The farm is in... More

the visit to the farm included interaction with the horses and a demonstration of the harvesting of peat moss. The owner was very enthusiastic and gave us a great tour. The hospitality of tea and scones was appreciated.

My daughter booked a pony trek for my 9 year old grandaughter & some of her friends as an alternative birthday party. All of the children - even those who were initially nervous - enjoyed it immensely. The ponies were very well behaved & staff who accompanied us were friendly & competent. We were provided with a barn for the... More

I guess we would have enjoyed this more if the weather were a bit clearer, but the owner seemed adamant about giving us the tour regardless, even though most of us were ready to move to our next destination. The neighbor fellow who joined us was delightful - as were the tea and scones. Could have left it at that.... More

A delightful visit with the family on the Sheans Horse Farm. A long-time neighbor was there to visit and add a little color. I asked if my Scot-Irish name was still about in N. Ireland and he assured me that it is. Although I didn't cut turf, I observed it and got the smell of it burning. The scones were... More

We love coming to Sheans. We have been on treks with friends as well as the family and attended the Christmas experience. Sheans put 100% into everything they do and it really shows, fantastic hosts, great staff, beautiful horses, breathtaking views and a really memorable experience. We've been before and we will definitely continue to come back- an unmissable experience... More
