English Plus Horse-Riding

About this course

Emerald, in collaboration with Carrickmines Equestrian Centre, are delighted to offer our English Plus Horse-Riding Programme. Ireland has a long-standing tradition in equestrian sports. Our programme allows students to experience this tradition while also improving their English language skills. Professional instructors take charge of the afternoon horse-riding lessons, which include dressage, polo-crosse, trekking, cross-country and competitions.

This exciting course is designed for students between the ages of 11 and 17 years. It offers young people the possibility to improve both their English and horse-riding skills in a two-week programme by combining our Intensive language course with a horse riding skills course.

Carrickmines Equestrian Centre is a family-owned equestrian centre built up over 20 years and is today one of the largest in Ireland. The centre is located in a very picturesque setting overlooking Dublin Bay. The centre boasts some of the finest equestrian facilities in Ireland including an indoor arena, 80 acres of farmland (for trekking and cross country), a large all-weather arena ideal for polo-crosse and a floodlit outdoor sand arena.

I attended the English Plus Horse-Riding program at Emerald. I had a really good experience and it motivated me to continue taking Horse-Riding lessons in my country.
