Banner Equestrian Centre is a family-run venue in the Burren in County Clare. Their facilities include an indoor arena, two spacious outdoor show jumping arenas, and a large practice arena. These were constructed using the unique Fibre Fusion Surface by Equestrian Surfaces Ireland.
The centre regularly holds official SJI (Show Jumping Ireland) events. There are always many promising horses/ponies competing at the events that are often for sale.
Banner Equestrian Centre won the National SJI Centre of the Year Award in 2013, 2018, and 2019.
Lessons for clients with their own horses/ponies are held daily and can be booked. Instruction is given by owners Noel (BHSAI, HIS Register of Coaches, SJI National Course Builder and Safety Steward) and Simone (BHSAI, HIS Register of Coaches, Therapeutic Coach, SJI Senior National Judge, SJI National Course Builder and Safety Steward).
It is also possible to rent any arena for your own training. Ring the centre to book your appointment in your chosen arena.
