A lovely, winding ride into the steep hills above Coroglen. Some steep sections which beginners may find intimidating, but the wonderful horses know their way well and will keep you safe, as will the terrific guides. Our experienced 10-year-old daughter was given a horse with...More

Absolutely beautiful scenery and wonderful horses. The guides were brilliant and we had a fabulous time. Would definitely recommend a trip here for some off road adventures and wonderfully hidden scenic spots.
