Slieve Aughty Riding Centre is a small family run riding centre in the west of Ireland catering for all levels of horse riders from ages 5 and up.  We believe in building partnerships between horses and riders and teach to develop effective communication between horse and rider and for the rider to develop the skills to be confident and stable on the horse.  Our horses and ponies are part of the family and have been with us for many years, living in herds as close to a natural life as possible. Many are ridden bitless. 

We offer riding lessons in our 30x50metre outdoor arena, treks in the surrounding 2,000 acres of Coillte forestry, cross country jumping, lead reins for beginners, pony camps, pony birthday parties, package riding holidays and opportunities to bring your own horse for schooling and on holiday or club outings.   


The riding centre is open from 10 to 6 pm Wednesday through Sunday, closed Mondays and Tuesdays. Same day bookings are not possible. All riding must be booked in advance and riders must be age 5 or more.
