From the Horse’s Mouth
Pony Camps include horseback riding lessons for children with a focus on building confidence and balance in the saddle and having fun. Kids learn how to care for ponies, gain skills through lessons and confidence on treks through the surrounding hills. Kids may stay overnight during children’s pony camps sessions each summer.
Travel with your child on a family riding holiday or send them to camp at Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre while you explore Ireland. Many international families also send their kids to camp by themselves, another great way to gain confidence and life skills.
Built in pre-Georgian times, with exterior walls over 3’ thick in places, Rusheen House, which is set on 28 acres of lush green rolling hills and woodland with panoramic views has always provided a friendly welcome for generations of children.
With six ponies and six horses, kids and adults can also enjoy guided horse treks ranging from an hour to a day at Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre. These trail rides are appropriate for beginners or experienced riders. Horseback rides are through mountain pastures with breathtaking views, where you can see ancient ring and hill forts, standing stones and wonderful Irish ruins.
