Mary Leonard's Riding School is a family run centre started in 2013. We are located 3 km from Newcastle West, Co Limerick on the R522
The Riding School is set on a traditional Irish farm with nice views of the Rooska and Ashford hills. We have a 20 acres of cross country and a further 50 acres of scenic farmland for Trekking.
We run lessons on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday in the afternoons and on Saturdays. We cater for both children and adults from the age of 8 years old. We offer group lessons and private lessons for beginners to advanced riders. We specialise in showjumping and cross country. We have 2 outdoor sand arenas, an indoor and a large cross country course.
All our students start in a one to one lesson so they can learn at their own pace and understand the technique and skills needed to take part in a group riding lesson. Our ponies and horses are well trained. A suitable pony will be carefully chosen for the student according to their riding ability.
All our Instructors have BHS qualifications and have years of experience teaching children. We actively compete showjumping, eventing and go hunting when we are not teaching. We produce young horses for ourselves and take horses on livery.
We offer Riding/ English Holidays for children and teenagers. The students are encouraged to learn English while enjoying their passion Horse Riding.
