The morning after our arrival we received instruction in harnessing, driving and caring for our horse. Our instructor accompanied us, first in their own grounds, and later on the open road, before letting us off on our own to explore the quiet roads of Mayo. But, the company was always within easy reach if we needed them! Traffic generally takes great care and slows down to a crawl as much out of curiosity as courtesy.
The caravan had sleeping accommodation for 4 persons, and a breakfast cooker, electric kettle, sink, kitchen equipment and seating to allow holiday meals to be prepared and served in the caravan.
We travelled about 10miles (3 hours) each day and stopped overnight at selected farm sites where we were welcomed and made to feel at home. Overnight stops cost around 16 euro, electricity hook up about 2 euro. At a minimum, they provide parking for the caravan, grass for the horse, waste disposal, electric hook-ups, toilets and hot showers. However they sometimes provide much more, including packed-lunches, cooked meals, picnic tables, barbeques, farm produce and sometimes transport to local visitor attractions.
