Unique courses in horses

In order to attract more adult guests, Crossogue House is now offering a number of different packages to suit couples and larger groups.

A day visit to Crossogue will start with a pot of tea or coffee and freshly baked scones topped with Crossogue jams and preserves made by Mark's mother.

The day includes morning and afternoon riding sessions, with a two-course lunch in between to help you re-energise.

The riding sessions can include flatwork, show jumping or cross-country lessons. Prices for a day package begin at €120 per person.

Prices for an all-inclusive weekend with full use of the period house, multiple riding sessions and all home-cooked meals begin at €395 per person.

Crossogue also offers specialised one-day cross-country clinics and Mark is happy to create tailor-made packages for individuals, couples and larger groups.

"It could be an anniversary, birthday or any other occasion -- just give us a call and we will tailor everything to suit your needs," he says.

Mark can also organise a day's hunting on any day of the week, taking care of everything from selecting a suitable meet to organising the best horses to suit each client individually.

"We are also happy to organise pre-hunting clinics for those who have not hunted before and want to be properly prepared of the day's sport," he adds.
