A riding lesson

Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre is based at Rusheen, a townsland between Borrisoleigh and Upperchurch, Co. Tipperary, Ireland. We are located between Thurles, Templemore and Nenagh in the beautiful and unspoiled Tipperary Uplands, home to the legendary Ned of the Hills.

We provide an outstanding horse riding experience though unspoiled mountain pastures, rich with landscapes, legends and hidden Irish history. Our knowledgeable instructors will guide you through this stunningly beautiful countryside.

We cater for all levels of equestrian and we do not mix groups on our pony treks. Your ride will be tailored to the ability and confidence of the least experienced member of your party.

Riding hats are compulsory. As a courtesy we can lend you one, as well as suitable boots.

We can provide livery facilities for those who want to bring their own horse with them.

Our facilities are annually inspected and approved by the Association of Irish Riding Establishments (AIRE). This means that you can horse ride or pony trek with us assured in the knowledge that we achieve the high equine welfare and rider safety standards required for membership of the Association.

Family room 1We have on-site BnB accommodation for guests who would like to stay overnight before or after their trek, or who would like to arrange a riding holiday with us.


We are committed to using natural horsemanship techniques in the training of our horses and riders. We believe in ethical and sustainable tourism.

So come and experience the magic of the mountains on horseback at Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre. We are nearer than you think!
