All riding must be pre-booked, and you find a weekly schedule with rates here. Text or call Noni to check availability on +353872794392.
The listed time is the time the ride leaves the yard, so you need to arrive a minimum of 15 minutes before to sign in and be assessed on the horse before we head out.
We are punctual with our times, so please arrive early to ensure you don’t miss your ride. Horse riding we do:
Cross-Country Jumping Ride, 1 hr
This is a one hour cross country jumping ride on the park and farmland of Bel-Air.
You will experience jumping lanes as well as natural walls, logs and banks as well and a variety of man-made fences. As we have use of the full working farm, the routes change regularly.
Jumping experience is required for this ride.
Wicklow Hills Scenic Ride, 1 hr
This ride allows you to see the rolling Wicklow hills as never before. Ride through Bel-Air farmland and into national forests for some lovely long canters before washing the horse’s legs in our pond on the way home. No jumping.
Wicklow Hills Scenic Ride, 2 hrs
The beginning of this ride is the same as on the 1 hr scenic ride and then continue further up Carraig Mountain where we pass above the next village, Glenealy, and circle back on the Aghowle side of the forest before heading for home. No jumping.
Cross-Country Jumping and Wicklow Hills Combo
This is a combination of the cross-country jumping and Wicklow hills rides, where you get the best of both worlds.
Jumping is optional.
Group Lesson, 1 hr
Weekly group lessons are available as described in the time table and can be organised at other times with a minimum of 4 people. These can be in dressage, show jumping or cross-country jumping, or a combination of disciplines. Lessons are held in our flood lit all weather arena or in the fields as the weather allows. All lessons are with qualified instructors.
Private/Semi Private Lesson, 1 hr
Private lessons can be arranged midweek, subject to availability and can be in all disciplines, including lunge lessons. Perfect if you want to work on a particular area, gain confidence and improve quickly.
Livery, subject to availability
The livery horses in Bel-Air tend to stay for a long time so spaces don’t become available very often. But please ask Maggie or Noni if you think Bel-Air would suit you as a livery yard.
