I had a great time at the camp and I also made many friends who live abroad. All in all I spended 2 fantastic weeks and I really recommend it to any horse lover to visit it. hopefully they will have a good time like I did, or an even better time than mine!" - FILIP 15 YRS. "We recommend Kildinan Equine to anyone who loves horses and wishes to spend a great time in Ireland. My son Filip stayed with Debbie for 2 weeks and returned home excited. Not only did he have a great time but he also improved his riding skills. Debbie is a lovely person that made me feel that my child was in good hands. As a mother I was very anxious, taking into consideration that my son travelled for the first time alone abroad, but Debbie was available every time I contacted her and my son felt that he was visiting friends. To have such a nice environment in a summer camp, is extremely rare to find. Kildinan Equine should be your first choice when considering a fun yet educational program for your child during their vacation."
