    SUMMARY OF THE TRIP top

    Annaharvey is a 390 acre farm and woodland complete with homely accommodation, a stable of great Irish horses and over 200 cross country jumps to cater for all levels of jumping. Family run and based in the heart of Ireland, Annaharvey is the perfect spot if you love jumping, want to gain experience and confidence or just do a lot of cross country riding in the lovely green Irish countryside on good solid horses. Sam and Aisling run the horsey side of the farm; Sam is a qualified course builder and both he and Aisling regularly compete in Ireland bringing a wealth of experience and gravitas to this set up – they really do know their stuff!. Annaharvey as well as offering riding holidays also hosts numerous hunter trials and Eventing Ireland competitions throughout the year and is well respected as one of Ireland’s best cross country venues.

    It’s a really homely and warm environment for anyone to visit whether that be on their own or with family and friends. Big group sizes can be accommodated, so for anyone thinking about getting their friends together to do something different for some-ones birthday, this is the perfect place, a few hours of exciting riding per day and either a quiet evening meal with a few drinks or a visit to the local pub for some good Irish craic!

    We also think this is the perfect place for anyone getting back into xcountry and jumping, if you perhaps were competitive as a teenager and are thinking of getting back into the sport, this is a great option to trial before you buy a new horse and set out your new path.

    Rhona on Flowerhill Cross Country Riding, Ireland

    Flowerhill is by far the best cross country riding experience I’ve ever had. I can’t describe how amazing Oliver and his horses are – I now have a horse on livery there... that says it all!
