Bantry Pony Trekking started with a few ponies that were neglected and/or unwanted which we bought.

 Come for the craic!

We decided pony trekking and gentle lessons was the least exploitative way for them to earn their keep . As the years have gone by they also contribute to the upkeep of our “Freeloaders” !!!!!

They are a bunch of about 15 horses and ponies of various ages, some are old and retired, enjoying life, some were neglected or abused and as a result are unsuited to riding and some are pitiful youngsters waiting for a chance.

All these will enjoy life here as long as they are sound and happy, but some would suit fostering, sponsoring or re-homing, if you would like to know more, or help , please contact us.
