Horses have long been a traditional part of everyday life in Ireland, and nowhere is this more true than on the Dingle Peninsula. As late as the 1950s most farm work and ploughing was still done by the horse. A Sunday afternoon ride by horseback was an outing treasured by native and visitor alike. And what better way to connect with the beauty of nature than via the leisurely pace of the horse! Today, machines have replaced the horse on all but a few Irish farms, but dedication and affection to these trusted friends lives on through its use in leisure and sporting pursuits.
The Dingle Peninsula provides the ideal location for the freedom experienced while horse-riding or pony trekking . . . mile after mile of soaring mountains, of open grass covered hills falling gently to the sea, of tranquil, narrow, back country road lined with flowering red fuchsia and golden yellow gorse, and of sparkling, sandy beaches. If it's nature and beauty you're looking for, you'll find it here in abundance.
