About Cooley Equestrian Centre

This centre was set up in 2000 by the late Maureen Doherty & family. Maureen was a keen horsewoman and had taken part in most Equestrian activities down the years. She spent time as instructor at Morven Park, Virginia. In the late sixties Maureen was also an excellent judge.

The centre is now run by her daughter Gillian (BHS, Equestrian Federation Coach, RDAI Instructor) who is also certified under disability awareness, child protection and First Aid.

Situated 2 miles from Moville past the historical site of Cooley Cross, with fabulous views over Lough Foyle and surrounding countryside.

Lessons are available for all levels of riders:
  • Beginning to Advanced
  • Hacking
  • Holiday Rides
  • Summer Camps
  • Horse kept at livery

All lessons given by qualified experienced instructors.

This is an AIRE approved centre, also approved under BHS Road Safety, Test & Training. We are pleased to say the centre incorporates Riding for Disabled (Inishowen branch). These clients avail of the facility on Tuesday/Wednesday weekly in the Maureen Doherty Centre. The RDAI is a charitable organisation and all instructors, helpers, etc on appointed days work on a voluntary basis, without whom it could not function, would you like to help?

We were in the area for 4 days and went twice for riding lessons as a family. We were all more or less beginners and quite nervous. The stables are run by Gillian who is professional and fun. As well as Gillian giving the lesson, we each had an instructor allocated to each horse right next to us, ensuring we were safe, and giving us tips. The horses were very well behaved. It was a fantastic experience and we all agreed our lessons there made our holiday really special and memorable. Will definitely go back if we find ourselves in the area.

Fantastic Yard! If you love your horse this is the yard to place them in if you want the best care from people who know and love horses too.
