Horse riding holidays with a difference!

 
New Packages coming soon this Summer! 
 
Yes, County Mayo has the best white sandy beaches for taking long gallops on and wonderful hills to trek across, but did you know that Westport, County Mayo also has its own qualified Monty Roberts Instructor?
 
Padraic Foy was born into a family whose association with horses goes back generations. After working in various sectors of the equine industry including show jumping, showing, racing and breeding he qualified as a Riding Instructor and Padraic Foy, owner of Drummindoo Stud, felt that traditional methods of training did not always meet the needs of the horse and he believed that if people could understand and communicate better with horses, life would be better not only for the horses but for people too.
 
Prior to departing on a four day trek you will have the opportunity of spending a day experiencing and trying Monty Roberts’s theory of ‘Join-Up’, communicating with horses through theory and hands-on round pen work. You will learn that it is based on trust and is achieved by communication via body language and an understanding of the psychology of the horse. Padraic will give a Join-Up demonstration. After this you will get the chance to experience for yourself a Join-Up and the magic moment of Join-Up.
