A new season awaits at Dromquinna Stables

Winter is a busy time at Dromquinna Stables as horses are all housed in the yard and stabled in loose pens from the end of December to the beginning of May, they need regular exercise and care and they are kept fit with riding lessons after school and on weekends.
It is also a busy time for the owners as maintaince of yard and farm restarts at the end of October and stops/not ends at Easter. They have to take care of all repairs that need to be done around the farm and yard, a day fencing, a new wall, a new coat of paint can all be on the agenda for the day followed by mucking out and looking after the horses, of course.
Spring has been busy so far for the stables as the horse training side of the business has been well visited by horses and ponies for training and schooling.
Also Saturday pony club and weekend lessons went ahead weekly and they were very lucky that the weather did not interfere too much.
Riders from the Saturday club went show jumping in Bantry before and after Christmas and did very well, coming home with plenty of rosettes for double clear rounds.
The stables are looking forward to seeing new and old well known faces again for the Easter break and are holding a 3 day Easter camp in the second holiday week (7th- 9th April, see advert below for details).
They are looking forward in taking you on a beautiful ride along the shores of Kenmare Bay or into the mountains along the Wild Atlantic Way while on your Easter Break in Kenmare. Come and have a lesson and improve your seat and position on the horse or try your hand at Polocrosse, a brilliant game from horse back which will test the agility of horse and rider, recently added to Dromquinnas ‘menu’.
The owners of Dromquinna Stables would also like to take this opportunity to thank their riders for their great and dedicated custom and all the drivers on the Sneem Road for their courtesy while meeting them on their journeys.
Furthermore they would like to extend their thank you to fodder suppliers, plant hire, veterinary care and mechanics to keep old machinery running well and to the manual helpers (you know who you are!)
They want to wish everyone a healthy and happy season, so saddle up and ride Kenmare!
