“Fun for whole family of non-riders”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

My wife, three young daughters and I all enjoyed the "hour" long ride. None of us are riders and Peter and his staff made us very comfortable. The horses are very easy going and obviously used to amatuers. The views were awesome and the ride a lifetime memory.

“Terrible Weather but Amazing Guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Wife and I did this tour on an overcast/rainy day but she has been wanting to ride for months so I thought we'd roll the dice. Peter greeted us with warm smile and introduced us to our horses, Guinness and Max. We did 2 hour ride which it says is for riders with some experience, but he tailors his rides for anyone, so unexperienced riders just didn't canter with the more experienced. Weather deteriorated soon after leaving and it was soon raining and windy and there were no real views for our trip. However, I know the views of the burren and cliffs were there somewhere. In the dismal conditions Peter's enthusiasm and frequent questions to get to know us better really shone through and made the ride enjoyable. Will return to attempt again on a clear day.

Did a beautiful trek over the hills overlooking the burren, galway bay and the aran islands.
The enthusiasm of the owner,Peter was infectious.
Great value and well worth visiting.

“Beach Trek to Fanore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

We planned for everything - rain, hail, cold. What we got was the warmest day so far of the year and beautiful sunshine. Almost Five hours or so in the saddle with a break for lunch, great fun. Definately going to go back. Thanks to Peter, Steffi and Rebecca.
