Representing Horse Riding Estabishments in Ireland
The Association of Irish Riding Establishments
Formed in 1974, the function of A.I.R.E. is to Approve/Accredit and promote Riding, Trekking & Facility Centres at home and abroad. Approved Riding Centres are listed on this website and www.gohorseridinginireland.ie
Centres are listed per County, per Activity and by name, the location is also placed on our Map - all found under Riding Centres at the top of the Home page.
AIRE offers each Approved Centre their own page offering details of their facilities and services together with a picture. Each year the centre is visited in respect of safety of client and welfare of animal. The tack, yard, stables, arenas and paddocks are viewed in respect of good practice. Current Insurance and Safety Guidelines will be in place.
Instructor and Manager Qualifications are monitored on a yearly basis ensuring all required courses by Health & Safety and the National Children’s Act are in place. Instructors must have the minimum of BHS Stage 2 Teach or HSI Level 2 or Irish Pony Club B+ Teaching Qualification to be approved by AIRE.
AIRE represents its members by consulting and co-operating with Horse Sport Ireland, the governing body. AIRE is represented on various H.S.I. committees giving their members a voice for improvements, changes and new incentives. AIRE will communicate with Failte Ireland and the Department of Agriculture developing and encouraging the highest standards of quality and service in the management and operation of Horse Riding Establishments.
