Horse Riding & Pony Trekking

Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre

Welcome

UNIQUE AND OUTSTANDING HORSE TREKKING EXPERIENCE

Welcome

Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre is a horse riding and pony trekking centre based at Rusheen, a townland between Borrisoleigh and Upperchurch, Co. Tipperary, Ireland, Eircode E41 X393. It is centrally located between Thurles, Roscrea, Templemore and Nenagh in the beautiful and unspoiled Tipperary Uplands. In addition, we are only a short drive away from the M7 and M8 motorways, which go from Dublin to Limerick and Dublin to Cork. So why not stop-off to experience the magic of the mountains on horseback?

Our small family -run centre has been established for the past 20 years. We specialise in horse riding and pony trekking experiences in the unspoiled Irish countryside. These include: lessons for children and adults; one hour and two hour pony treks; longer horse trail rides to the pub; on-site residential short breaks and riding holidays; solo traveller vacations; school tours; birthday parties; and pony camps.

What makes us unique:

  • Our one and two hour treks are completely off-road, through the mountain pastures which surround the Centre.
  • Ride through countryside which is unspoiled, spectacularly beautiful, and rich in wildlife, archaeology and local legends.
  • Experienced and knowledgeable guides accompany all our rides.
  • All levels of rider are catered for, from beginner to experienced.
  • We do not mix groups on our pony treks, so your ride will be tailored to the ability and confidence of the least experienced member of your party.
  • Basic instruction and rider assessment are included at the start of your trek.
  • Equine and rider welfare is our priority. We use natural, gentle horsemanship techniques in training our horses and riders.
  • Ride with us and support ethical and sustainable tourism. We are a local, family run business supporting other local businesses.
  • Free loan of riding hats and suitable boots.
  • Please note height and weight limits apply.

What makes us unique:

    Santa aka Finn O Sullivan arrived during the week with some lovely Agrobs Feeds for the horses. 😁🐴

    The older ones are loving the Weisenflakes and Alpengrun Mash, and the working ponies and horses have been munching on Myo Protein flakes with their Lucerne 💪

    Agrobs have a great range of all natural feeds to cater for every horse, to improve their gut health and overall performance.

    Without molasses and artificially grown products in their feed, horses can truely thrive. Agrobs ask.have a fantastic range of mineral feeds to ensure the horses have balanced diet wherever they are in world! 🌼🌱

    We are also trying the Equisolv CBD powder and so far, the results for both human and horse have been great! 😁🐴

    Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre will now be a stockist for Agrobs feed! 🤩
    Just let us know if you would like any more information or a brochure. A healthy horse is a happy horse 😁😁🐴

    Thanks also to The Horse Therapist for her amazing feeding advice 😊
