Horse Riding in Sligo

Seatrails: Heritage on Horseback Trail
Have you ever wanted to do horse riding along the Wild Atlantic Way? Try horse riding in Sligo and soak up local heritage and gorgeous scenery!

Enjoy pretty Irish countryside and beautiful beaches along the Wild Atlantic Way on horseback and learn about local Spanish Armada history and Irish famine history as you trek along the shore. We accompany you while riding and point intresting sites and nature along the trail. You will meet your guide Auriel in the friendly stable yard where rabbits, chooks, geese, dogs and cats all roam freely amongst the horses. You will then be supplied with a hat and boots and you’ll meet your horse who will take you on a special journey. We will always do our very best to make sure you have a memorable time and will be there with you for the whole experience. Tea/coffee and treats are served after and are complimentary.

There are a number of options for you to choose from-

1. You can do a 1 hr guided ride, taking it easy, enjoying the views as you clip clop along the shore:  Little or no experience required

2. If you wish to do a little bit more on your horse, then a 1.5hr ride is a great way to feel free and get some Atlantic air into your lungs while trotting and cantering (optional) down a gorgeous beach: Some experience required

3. If you are very comfortable in the saddle and would like to explore the coast and inland on country lanes lined by green hedgerows, then choose this 2 hr ride: Experience required.

4. If you want a full day out on the saddle with your friends, we recommend an island ride. Here, we will cross a magnificent tidal lagoon, traverse wild sand dunes and canter (optional) on expansive golden beaches. You will see heaps of wildlife on this ride such as wild sea birds and seals. We include a packed picnic lunch break at a ruined farmstead on a pretty secluded island and return afterwards across the lagoon. 

Duration: c.4.5 hrs

Terrain: Rocky shore, sand, tidal lagoon, beach. 

Minimum number: 3/4. Considerable experience required
