Ireland XC Intensive Trip

Join for an intensive cross country training in the West Coast of the Emerald Island. You will train over a vast territory with over 150 fences; a mixture of natural logs, drops, bush fences, banks, ditches, stone walls and a huge variety of man made obstacle with most of the fences including 2 or more height options to suit different abilities. With around 70 Irish Sport horses available, there is a range of horses to suit and accommodate rider levels and trainers will work with you to improve your skills and techniques over the weekend.

While not riding, take an evening trip to visit the charming harbour city of Galway, known for its robust busking and local shopping. You can also enjoy great restaurants, pubs and music in one of Irelands most loved areas. 

Interested in Irish Sport Horses and looking to bring one back to the US? We can facilitate test rides and introductions to Irelands top breeders. 

Experience: Riders should be a solid level 3 intermediate. XC riding is for brave and confident riders looking to improve in skill and confidence.
