"I recently got to spend the day with Padraic and Ailise while in Ireland. They are wonderful and have a very nice facility. You can tell they live and breathe for their horses. All of them are happy, healthy and the one I rode was lovely. If you are looking for lessons, training or trail riding, give Drummindoo a call!"

Sarah Eisler

"What a great riding academy!! Padraic and his daughter are both great horse people and very knowledgeable. Their horses are well loved and cared for. The facilities have everything you could want from a riding school. Indoor arena, outdoor arena, galloping track, grass field and pastures."
