Two Trips in 2019: May 28 - June 7 & July 16 - 26
UPDATE: There is one spot left for the May/June trip. July is sold out.
Each trip begins and ends in Dublin. You’ll have time on day one to explore the city’s unique blend of historic treasures along with it’s diverse cosmopolitan richness.
After a celebratory first night together in the well known Temple Bar District, we’ll travel by van to the northwest coast and stay overnight in Mullaghmore near the farm.
The following day we begin our 7 days of riding adventure. The Irish countryside offers a spectacular array of coastline, rugged mountains and rolling hills. We’ll ride at a comfortable pace mixing up long stretches of quiet walks with lively trots, plenty of cantering and even a few exhilarating gallops along the gorgeous beaches!
We’ll ride from B&B to B&B with stops at the local pubs, clip-clopping down the country lanes taking in the beautiful palettes filled with sheep, rock walls, cows, ancient peat bogs and a few donkeys!
This is your opportunity to connect with your authentic self and your heart's desires in the presence of equus in one of the most magical places on earth ~ Ireland.

Testimonials from previous participants
"Ireland is a magical land, experiencing it from the strong and supportive back of a kind and balanced draft will always be a lifelong treasured memory. Joyce and Christina deepen the experience with their connection to the horses, the riders and the land. It is much more that a trail ride, it's a soul quest." ~Suzanne S. Las Vegas, NV, 2015
"The riding was arduous but immensely satisfying. The bond between riders grew and became truly inspirational and so fulfilling. The vistas were never ending as far as the eye could see. Cantering on the beach was exhilarating...Joyce and Christina brought the group together, helped tremendously with the horses and led us on a spiritual journey. The spiritual aspect of this trip adds to the fullness of the experience in ways unimaginable." ~Maureen C. Youngstown, OH, 2016
"Opportunity of a lifetime you deserve. Christina and Joyce offered a safe, fun adventure full of introspection, depth and freedom to explore ~ and what could be better than doing that on horseback? The horses were amazing and so was the journey. Thank you both for your wisdom and the many opportunities to grow and learn. Full of gratitude. " ~Lin L. Castlerock, CO, 2016
