Ride Out with CEAD-Ireland

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 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. 

We have a great selection of trail rides with different skill levels:
