Equestrian Centres in Donegal


What better way to start your day than a canter along a gorgeous beach or a trek on a horseback around quiet country roads. From the saddle of your horse enjoy a different perspective on the landscape. Listen to the sounds of nature, the crashing of the waves, delight in the colours of the wild flowers and enjoy an exhilarating equestrian experience which will leave you wondering why you never tried it before.
