We went on the beach ride on 27th Aug 2014, with an 8 year old, 15 year old novice and me as an adult beginner. From the first minute we met a warm and friendly welcome, Tom as our accompanying guide and instructor was absolutely brilliant and went out of his way to make a fuss of my 8 year old. Her pony was keen to stop and munch on grass and she got a bit upset but Tom patiently helped her and soon she was having a great time again. He was a mine of horse information and wit. He took a lot of care to make sure we got some amazing photos out in the bay and took extra time to make sure we more than got our money's worth in the time on the beach. His calm and expertise helped us all to relax. You will not do better for an experience of a lifetime, in the capable hands of Tom and Sandra.

With three total novices, (one with a mild fear of horses from poor previous experiences) we were given an amazing ride none of us will forget. Despite being a complete last minute idea (same day booking) this may be the the highlight of our two weeks in Ireland! (It is for sure for our 10 year old who is suffering from castle fatigue!)

I took 4 girls out to Moycullen Riding Centre on Thursday 31st August, 2014 aged between 13 and 15. They had no experience with horses and were very nervous but this was always something they wanted to do. Sandra and her staff made them feel completely at ease it was such a great experience and the highlight of their trip. They were trilled at the end when Sandra asked them if they wanted to canter in the ring. The horses were so well trained and the staff were very helpful and kind to the girls. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone. K Noonan

Myself and three friends traveling from Newfoundland went on the beginners country trail! The staff were very welcoming and nice, also very helpful! As a beginer, I was a little nervous at first, but with the staffs instructions and well trained horses, I had a very enjoyable ride! Highly recommended !

A massive thank you to Sandra, Tom and all the staff at the riding school. My two children attended a three day summer camp there and had the "best days of their summer vacation". It was something new to try out and we will do it again next time we are back from Boston :)
