About your host

I am lucky enough to have owned and managed Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre for the past two decades. During this period my daughter, Lily, has grown up here, along with our family of home-bred or rescued Connemara ponies and Irish Sport horses. Over the years we have imbibed the history of the area, and can tell you the stories and legends behind the charming ruins and archaeological features…

What we’ll do

When you arrive, you will be welcomed by our two small super-friendly Jack Russell terriers and Heinz 57 puppy, who will make sure that your car drives slowly into our yard by running alongside it! We will introduce you to the horses and chat with you about your riding hopes and fears before filling in registration forms and fitting you with compulsory riding hats and boots, should you need them…

What else you should know

You should be physically fit. Even a gentle horse ride can lead you to discover muscles in places you never knew you had!

What I’ll provide

Equipment
Riding hats, boots and horses. Wear long pants and socks even if the weather is hot, and bring your rain-jacket.

What to bring

Cameras, rainjackets, stretchy pants (jodphurs, jeggings, loose-fitting jeans), socks

Where you'll be

We will be riding through hundreds of acres of pristine mountain pasture. We will visit the remains of a Bronze Age village, admire a 6000 year old dolmen, look at Celtic ring forts (one with its ancient field pattern still intact), and learn about the families who occupied the picturesque tumble-down farm houses. Depending on the time of year, your guide will also explain the bio-diversity around you.
