Riding by the Sea
"O the Opal and Sapphire of the wandering Western Sea, and
the women riding high above with bright hair flapping free ."
Thomas Hardy could be describing the scene at Grange, Co. Sligo
on Ireland's Atlantic Sea-board as horse and rider are silhouetted
against the early morning sky of Europe's westernmost coastline.
From Horse Holiday Farm you can ride left and right along miles
of sandy beaches.
You can trek along the lanes of the hinterland and mountains,
waterfalls, lakes and historic castles and houses.
You can improve your riding skills on our cross-country Course
of 10 miles and over 50 obstacles set on 400 acres.
An experienced guide will show you around, but you are free at
any time, to ride as you please, before breakfast or at sunset.
The horse is yours for the duration of your holiday, so you may
ride as you please each day.
Wednesday is rest-day for the horses.
This will give you the opportunity to do some shopping or tour
the counties of Sligo and Donegal.
As an individual or in a group, you will have an unforgettable
holiday with lots of adventure, fun and relaxation.
