Crossogue Equestrian in beautiful Tipperary, Ireland, welcomes adult guests, families and unaccompanied teenage guests for fully inclusive Ireland riding holidays. 

Crossogue Equestrian offers riding vacations and equestrian training opportunities for guests in a number of equestrian disciplines with a specialty in open countryside horse riding and cross country jumping. There are gallops and a diverse range of cross country obstacles all over the farm with lots of challenges for both horse and rider. All riders first spend time in the arena with expert instructors, so they can get to know you and you can get to know your horse and develop confidence in the partnership before embarking on the challenges that await on your Ireland equestrian vacation.

Trails and cross country rides wind through fields of young thoroughbreds and breeding stock. Guests on these Ireland equestrian vacations are invited to share in the experience viewing the young horses as they develop and those in full training. The Molloy family, who own and run Crossoque Equestrian, have been involved with horses for five generations. They also train racehorses for steeplechasing and guests are welcome to watch all aspects of the training routine and come racing when the family has runners. 

For over 25 years, young riders have been an vital part of Crossogue during the summer holidays. There were six children in the Molloy family and today the summer riding camps are just like what they experienced during summers with friends when they were teenagers. Young guests enjoy the change of scenery and the variety of horse riding activities that they've come to expect at Crossogue.

Because this Irish horse farm is centrally located, a day at an Irish hunt can be organized on any day of the week for your Ireland equestrian vacation. Crossogue Equestrian will select the most suitable meets, booking guests in and organizing the best horses to suit each client individually. The staff will provide you with food for the day for your Irish hunt and a little something to revive spirits at the end of a long and exciting day. Crossogue Equestrian is also happy to organize pre hunting clinics for those who have not hunted before and want to be properly prepared of the day's sport.
