My family and I decided to have a self catering holiday in Co. Down and with the current circumstances of lock down activities have been difficult to figure out. Mount Pleasant trekking was an absolute find, first off they really did all they could to keep us safe recommending we bring gloves and reassuring me on the phone that they were taking all measures possible. We decided to go on an hour long private trek which cost 35 pound per head which I believe for the experience you received was a great price. Our family has had one or two of these treks together in the past so our experience with horse riding was minimal however the leader of our trek, Gemma, was so professional but also friendly and reassuring she taught us the basic things we needed to know in controlling the reins and carefully chose horses to suit temperaments and height etc... She made sure our helmets were the right size and helped us with mounting and demounting the horses. I had a lovely horse named Jack who occasionally got greedy for some leaves along the trek but it was fairly easy to keep him on the right path with the guidance of Gemma. The trek itself was gorgeous!!! There was variety in the actual path which gave you different experiences with your horse and the view was incredible. I would like to thank Mount Pleasant for an incredible experience and would recommend this place to anyone and everyone!!!

Highly recommend this venue. Superb hack -- gorgeous, peaceful scenery even on an overcast day. All off-road. We opted for one hour private trek. Good opportunity to trot and canter. Amy, our guide, was excellent - very professional and friendly. The horses, Max and Sally, were perfect. All in all a great morning at an outstanding stables.

Annie was our guide and we opted for the 2 hour private Hack. Beautiful surroundings for our Hack. We walked, trotted and cantered. Annie was very attentive and on the 1st canter I asked for it to be steady as I was still getting used to Romeo and she did a lovely gentle canter. I didn’t need to spur Romeo on at all and he did listen well. My sister was on Pocahontas and has no problems with her either. We will both definitely be back.
