Flowerhill Equestrian is a dream for riders who love to jump or for those looking to improve their jumping skills and confidence - located on 250 acres of glorious countryside and with a range of fences, it's an authentic taste of Ireland and its horsemanship. Your host, Oliver, is a former field master and current huntsman. He has a range of working horses and his team will match you to suitable steeds which they feel are safe and enjoyable mounts for you. The horses have good jumping and hunting experience, courage and common sense.
This riding centre offers a huge range of obstacles with approximately 150 fences. These include walls, logs, ditches and manmade fences with many offering two or more height options allowing for different experience levels. All riders should be confident at walk, trot and canter with some basic jumping experience, but nervous jumpers will find plenty of smaller, inviting fences whilst the confident riders can feel more challenged. Those who prefer not to jump can still enjoy cantering the open fields or wading in the lakes and rivers, as well as joining in with exercising Oliver's hounds.
Guests are accommodated in one of two welcoming B&Bs, just a short drive from the stables, or in Flowerhill House on a self-catering basis. Both B&Bs provide you with packed lunches for the riding days but one also offers a full board option. There are lots of great pubs and restaurants in the area which provide wonderful evening meals and entertainment, these are a short drive from Flowerhill or within walking distance if you choose the B&B in town.
Team member Holly has visited and ridden here on several occasions - please contact the office to chat with her about it.
