Riding Lessons, Pony Camps & Hacks

Riding Lessons

We offer lessons on an individual basis or in small groups for all levels and riders of any age. We tailor lessons to suit your specific requirements.
Lessons usually last 1 hour. Young Riders, 4 year + can take a lead-rein lesson for ½ hour - please call us on 087 2822358 for more details.

We are now taking bookings for 'Term Horse Riding' - a buy a block of 5 children's lessons for the price of 4. Lessons continue in all weather in our small indoor arena and with horsemanship and stable management.

Equipment
All riders must bring their own well-fitting BHS Approved Helmet, Back Protector and Riding Boots. (We have a certain number of hats, back protectors and boots for first time riders, but will not lend out equipment on a regular basis for hygiene reasons). We also recommend a warm sweater, rain jacket, gloves, jodhpurs, and half-chaps if wearing jodhpur boots.


 

Pony Camps - Easter / Summer / Halloween / Christmas

We hold Pony Camps every Mid-Term Break and during the School Holidays. Usually lasting 3 days from 10am to 2pm, our Camps are aimed at 4 to 14 year olds.

Children have Riding Lessons, Stable Management training, BHS Progressive Tests and Pony Games and much more. Pony Camps are themed according to the season – at Easter there is an Egg Hunt, at Halloween Fancy Dress, and of course Santa and his reindeer/horse visit with a sack full of presents at Christmas. Children are fully supervised all day (early drop off and later collection can be arranged), we have 25 horses and ponies to choose from.

Residential Pony Camps also available for older children. All Pony Camps end with ‘Prize Giving’ and a rosette – we believe it is important that everyone is rewarded for their achievement.

During the School Holidays we take foreign students for residential 'English & Horse Riding Courses' - during this time we also offer 'French & Horse Riding' to a small number of Irish and English students from the age of 8 to 17. The students ride in the morning and take French tuition in the afternoon; they also have the advantage of socialising with our visitors from France - putting what they learn in their lessons into practice. Please email Amanda on info@rmec.ie for more information and prices or call 087 2822358.

 

Woodland Hacks

We offer a 1 hour hack in beautiful local woodland. If you have never ridden with us before we like to access your ability and fitness in the arena first, before heading out on the hack. Please call 087 2822358 or email info@rmec.ie for more information.
