Pony Trekking & Horse Riding Connemara

Ballynahinch Castle Hotel is located in the heart of Connemara, Galway and is an ideal base for gentle pony trekking holidays or galloping horse riding vacations!

For the riding enthusiast there are a number of excellent options available and Ballynahinch Castle has a great relationship with all the local Horse Riding Centres and the Equestrian Centres in Connemara. The local riding stables can cater for all levels of horse riding experience and stature and keep horses as well as Ireland's only indigenous breed of pony, the "Connemara". Ideal for pony trekking and valued the world over for its temperament, resilience and surefootedness, the Connemara Pony is a unique feature of the local landscape. We can even arrange a visit to the stables of the country's top breeder here in West Ireland.

So whether your preference is a cross country hack, a trek along country lanes or a gallop across the sands of Omey Island at low tide, then let us know and we will arrange it for you.
