Guided Horse Riding
Trail riding sometimes called horse or pony trekking is riding outdoors on natural trails and roads as opposed to riding in an enclosed area such as a riding arena. Trail rides at Coolmine Equestrian are led by fully qualified professional guides who will ensure your enjoyment and comfort.
All trail ride routes are assessed for elevation, distance and duration along with difficulty and skill levels for the rider. All riders are required to demonstrate the minimum riding skill for their chosen trail ride before departing our centre.

Horse Riding Camps
Coolmine Equestrian offers a fun filled adventure camp for the energetic child!
They run pony camps during all school holidays, and whenever the children are off school.
These pony camps are suitable for children aged 6-18, of any ability. They also run pony play camps for younger children (4-6 yrs).
Pony camps are an excellent way to develop riding skills and progress, are great for building confidence on and around the ponies, and a fantastic way to make lots of ‘like-minded’ friends in a safe, controlled environment.
The children will get involved with all aspects of pony care, including mucking out, grooming, feeding, plaiting, bathing, tacking & rugging up, as well as riding for 3 hours each day. Riding may include, flat work, jumping, hacking, gymkhana, or even preparation for a competition at the end of the week.
