About our Treks and Trail Rides
At Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre we have access to hundreds of acres of unspoiled mountain pastures, with panoramic views and fabulous wildlife. Treks through our beautiful surroundings can take in the remains of a Bronze Age settlement, an Iron Age hill fort, Celtic ring forts, a standing stone around 6,000 years old which was more recently used as a mass rock, and the romantic ruins of ancient farmsteads.
The pace of treks varies from a gentle walk through the countryside for novice riders, to fast rides with exhilarating gallops for experienced riders.
All treks are accompanied by an experienced leader.
When you arrive, we will assess your riding ability in our sand arena. Assessments include basic instruction in stopping, starting and turning. For more experienced riders assessments include evaluations of safety in trotting (posting), cantering and jumping.
Your trek will be tailor made to suit the needs of your party and will be based at the level of the least experienced rider in your party. We do not mix groups.
Views are beautiful – bring your phone or a small camera with you!
