Old Kilgrobbin Farm, Dargle Valley, Midlands Meander

Human-equine interaction at Horseplay

Old Kilgrobbin Farm is home to the Horseplay experience, which invites guests to spend a morning playing with magnificent Fresian horses.

Here, you will be introduced to natural horsemanship, and will acquire the basic knowledge and skills required for interacting with horses on the ground, and not just on their backs. This is a genuine horsewhispering experience, and provides guests with the insight as to how horses respond to body movements and gestures. It is a truly magical experience, and requires no previous knowledge of or interaction with horses.
