Meet our 25 Irish Cobs
Our Irish Cobs
Longs is the home of 25 Irish Cobs who enjoy their freedom running on 150 acres of land.
Irish Cobs are a native Irish breed with an excellent temperament. They are docile, sure-footed, weight carrying and honest: perfect for all different levels of riders.
Our horses live outdoors, except during winter months when they all live indoors in a great big barn.
I'm Bruno, you will see me strutting my stuff around the yard, I am one of the lead horses at Long's. The guides call me a loveable rogue because I am full of fun.
My name is Henry, I arrived at Long's last year and now am a fully fledged trekker ready for a fun season ahead. I have made lots of pals here, they can't resist my adorable big brown eyes.
Is misa Tom! I'm a wonderful horse who loves his job. I am a bit of a traffic warden around these parts, making sure all my friends can cross the road safely. The guides have a soft spot for me.
Jumbo, as my name suggests, I am one of the big boys. If I'm not working I can usually be seen catching some zzz's in the sun. My laid back attitude makes me very popular and I am great company on a trek for anyone who is tall, just like me.
Dia dhuit, Justin here. I am a lead horse at Long's. My job is to keep the younger crew in line and lead the way over the beautiful sandy beach of Ventry or the tops of the surrounding mountains. From a lovely walk to a fast gallop, I set the pace.
My name is Peggy, I'm a beautiful mare with a shy but caring nature. I always form a nice bond with my riders. Together we will take things nice and steady so that you can admire the beautiful surroundings of my home.
Champ by name, champ by nature! I am a Welsh pony and part of the furniture here at Long's Trekking. The guides adore me because I am always reliable and do my job very well. From beginners to more advanced riders, everyone can take a spin around the beautiful Ventry countryside with me.
Larry, ever the enthusiast! I am a big horse with an even bigger personality. I love taking people out trekking! The guides spoil me with carrots so much that I'm turning orange.
Pedro here, I have typical handsome Irish Cob features. I have been described as cool and steady. I take life easy and enjoy my job. You will feel very relaxed if you ride me.
Hello, Captain here! I am a Clydesdale horse. You may recognise me from the "Budweiser" advertisements. A big, strong, gentle giant who is also very handsome. If you are tall, you will be an ideal rider for me and we can admire the beautiful views together.
Hello, I'm Marko! This is me smiling, playing with my friend Tayto and just like him, I also love a treat! I am a comfortable ride and know my job very well.
Conas atá tú, Séanie is my name, it means "gracious gift" and that's just what I am. I'm a friendly, clever boy who knows that if I pretend to need a pee I can grab a quick bite of grass.
Hi, I'm Chloe! I am a sweet girl born and bred here at Long's Trekking centre. Because I am not the biggest of the bunch, teenagers make ideal riders for me.
My name is Annie, I am a lovely mare who knows what she is doing! I can take riders of all levels of experience, from a nice steady scenic walk to a nice, fast canter. I can do it all.
