Includes food, equipment
Up to 2 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

~Email me your specific dates and I will update the system so you can book. Subject to availability~

We'll meet at Crockatinney Stables, where you'll have a riding assessment. You will be required to ask a well-schooled horse for canter in order to qualify for this ride.

Once I am confident you are of sufficient ability, we'll ready our horses and the trailer and set off to a nearby horse-friendly beach (25 mins drive)

We'll enjoy approximate 90 minutes riding on the beach, including photo shoot and picnic.

We'll return home to the stables, and the experience will come to an end once the horses are back in their stables.
Other things to note
If guests do not pass the riding capability test, we will instead have our riding experience onsite in the enclosed arena, followed by a hack on our off-road trails.

I have been awarded my British Horse Society/BHS Ireland accreditations (Stages 1 & 2, including the Ride Safe Award) and I am working towards my instructor/coaching qualification.

I am interested in Equine Facilitated Learning as a therapeutic practice, and try to base my learning on Equitation Science.

Peoples’ interest in horses stems from the fact they were an integral part of all human societies for millennia. We owe a lot to horses, but sadly their relevance is being lost in our culture.

As prey animals, horses are extremely perceptive and sensitive to changes in human behaviour, and we must learn to regulate our emotions around them (an important and transferable life skill!)

I hope to be able to inspire your appreciation of horses in some small way. Get in touch with any queries - I’m always happy to help!

This was such a special experience for me! When I first spoke to Roisin I had told her my dream was to just gallop down the beach. Honestly, I thought this was going to be your average trail ride. Boy, was I wrong. It was a full on English lesson and I loved every second of it! Roisin is such a wonderful woman with loads of knowledge! These horses are her pride and joy and it shows. She cares about your safety as well as theirs and take precautions to ensure it. She is an absolute jewel! I never dreamed I would gain so much perspective on not only the Irish breed horses but on riding in general. I believed myself to be pretty handy in the saddle, a western saddle that is. But I was so happy to learn this new style and I just can’t get over how great an instructor Roisin turned out to be! I wish I could take lessons from her regularly! I even dragged a friend along who also just couldn’t stop talking about how wonderful this experience was! It turned out to be a beautiful sunny day and the BEST day of my entire vacation! Thank you so much for all of your help! I sincerely hope to visit again someday!

My husband took me here for my birthday!!! Absolutely incredible experience, best surprise ever. Roisin is an amazing host, very friendly and played along in the surprise even during the event. She introduced us to Hector and Bell (unofficial husband and wife) which my husband and I got to ride later on! We even got to meet Roisins drove of wandering delightful donkeys; I got to feed them carrots :D The beach is in a beautiful small town just a few minutes drive from where the stable is; and if the sun is out... you're in for a real treat!!! Overall this is a once in a lifetime experience, it was absolutely spectacular. We definitely recommend! Thank you Roisin :D

Roisin created a once in a lifetime experience for me on the beach in Ballycastle! Her passion for riding and love for her horses is inspirational. She makes the rider feel incredibly comfortable because she is so knowledgeable about the craft and in-tune to her horses. Booking an experience with her will be the best decision you make on your upcoming trip! This experience is one I will remember for the rest of my life!

I am an experienced horse person & past owner, whereas my partner is not. We both felt Roisin was able to meet both of our abilities with great consideration and care. We first rode in an arena where my partner got a most excellent class in the basics so he could be confident in the saddle, and I received helpful pointers on posture and proper collection with my horse. Roisin then surprised me with candles on Halloween cupcakes, as it was my birthday! After a sweet bite and a cuppa, she loaded up the horses and we headed to the seaside. The beach ride was fabulous during a long & colorful sunset, and she took epic photos to capture our experience on my birthday. I highly recommend this experience!
