Our farm is situated in the most beautiful and untouched area of the Green Island - directly on the North West Atlantic coastline. Here you will find the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the golden beaches, the green fields, the mountains and the clear waters of the streams and mountain lakes.
You will stay at the Horse Holiday farmhouse or guesthouses in the neighbourhood - all with a view of the sea.
The rooms have private showers/WC en-suite, and you are welcome to use our sauna to relax your aching muscles.
The horse is the unique element of this holiday.
Our horses are unspoilt and enjoy a fresh gallop over miles of beaches.
We have horses to suit all abilities of rider.
They are well mannered and experienced and very surefooted. You and your horse will have plenty of time to get to know one another.
On arrival, we will match horse and rider. You can look forward to each day with confidence. Your Irish Hunter will take you at a leisurely amble if you wish and he is also competent at galloping along the sand-dunes and beaches or jumping the obstacles on the Cross-Country Course.
The jumps on the Cross-Country Course have been designed and selected to cater for different levels of jumping, so everyone can have fun.
You can also ride the area where the Cross-Country Course is without taking the jumps and view our mares and foals, young stock and deer. The very experienced, as well as the less experienced, are well catered for with us.
If you can walk, trot, canter and gallop with confidence, we have the horse and holiday for you
"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.
