Embark on the trip of a lifetime to the Emerald Island! The trip includes 4 days of XC training with hundreds of jumps, amazing trainers and horses. Your stay is included in a historic Georgian Country House not far from all the action, including the lively town of Galway.

Head off to your daily trainings with snacks and your group of MRC riders. You can expect 1.5 hours of riding in the morning followed by lunch and another 1.5 hours in the afternoon. Meet other riders back at the house or at one of the wonderful restaurant options we will provide in our guide to Galway. 

You will also visit an Irish Sporthorse breeding farm and see how the Irish raise such lovely sport horses. Enjoy group dinners, cocktails and the beautiful Irish countryside.
