Hunt with the Galway Blazers on experienced, quality Irish hunters.
Your host, Willie Leahy, is Field master of this famous hunt.
Stay for a week or just a weekend. Ample opportunity to try out your horse before the hunt over natural and manmade fences and over our international standard event course. After hunting a warm welcome awaits in charming hotel or B&B accommodation with superb breakfast and dinners served.

Visits to neighboring packs can also be arranged. Limited places available so early booking is advised.

Ireland is known the world over for its hunting. There are 38 recognized packs of hounds. The hunting country is as varied and challenging than will be found anywhere else in the world. In some areas the land is crisscrossed by stone walls, in other parts of the country the obstacles can be big ditches or banks. Aille Cross is in the Galway Blazers country. This is ideal hunting country, open, level going divided by the stone walls for which the hunt is so famous.

The Irish hunting horse is as unique as the country itself. They are bred from the native Irish Draught crossed with a Thoroughbred stallion, producing an animal that is hard to match in its courage, tremendous jumping ability and kind temperament. At Dartfield and Aille Cross we have a large selection of horses that will suit any ability and size of rider. We pride ourselves on being able to match your ability to one of our horses to ensure that your hunting holiday is the experience of a lifetime.

Hunting Holidays
Dartfield Equestrian Centre and Aille Cross offer riders, experienced or novice, the opportunity to hunt in the Galway countryside. Willie Leahy, your host at Aille Cross, is the Field master of the Galway Blazers Hunt.

Riders should be secure at all paces and over fences. However, unlike many other hunting holidays, riders have a chance to get to know their hunters and the country beforehand. The package includes six days of riding with one to three days hunting.
