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 with your guide accompanying you.

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. If you wish to do a little bit more than walk and try a trot, 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 an advantage/suits beginners

2. 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.  

3. Island Ride If you are very experienced and want a full day out on the saddle with your friends, we recommond an exciting ride to a pretty island with an old farmstead where we stop for a picnic lunch. We will be the only ones out here and the scenery from here is spectacular. You will feel like you are a thousand miles away and are really experiencing the real Wild Atlantic Way. You will see plenty of marine life out here as well including seals, wild seabirds, and crabs. The channels we ride across are tidal and the horses just love to refresh themselves and splash about when crossing them. Duration: c.4 hrs. Minimum No: 4 persons. Considerable experience required. 

There is another option for experienced riders to ride to a historic harbour and have lunch there, just ask for more details!
