This year, we are offering a dressage, showjumping and cross country training clinic, delivered by top-class instructors.
Training sessions take place in our large all-weather sand arena, over natural obstacles around the farm and at our local cross country course.
Ask us about group rates and about creating a training clinic to meet your group’s specific needs.
We can provide horses and ponies to help promote confidence or to offer a challenge!
To ensure the comfort, safety and enjoyment of all Connemara Equestrian Escapes Cross Country Training Clinics, all riding guests must be confident at the walk and rising (posting) trot, canter paces and have some jumping experience in an English style saddle. There will be plenty of opportunities to canter or gallop, but if you’re not happy going up the gears you will be offered an alternative. For example, you may decide to dismount and take a stroll, with or without your pony. You may like to ride into the Atlantic Ocean and bring your horse or pony for a paddle. Whatever you decide, one of our experienced guides will stay with you until it’s time to rejoin the group. Find it difficult to mount from the ground? No problem! In Connemara there are as many stone walls and big rocks as there are colourful stories. Nature’s mounting blocks are plentiful and our ponies and horses are happy to stand and wait for you to get organised. Our aim is to make your time with Connemara Equestrian Escapes as memorable as possible, for all the right reasons.
