Flowerhill Cross Country is a 250 acre farm belonging to Oliver Walsh with approximately 100 cross country fences. Used by Eventing Ireland for some events there are jumps here for every level. Encouraging fences for young and green horses as well as some more challenging fences. Some fences have all weather surface around them meaning it’s also possible to ride and stay here in the winter although of course you will have a smaller choice of fences to jump when the ground is very wet. Join your encouraging host ‘Oliver Walsh’ on his cross country schooling rounds which run twice a daily for 1.5 hours morning and afternoons. You can also school round at your own pace on your own if you wish. Surrounded by the best possible horse riding land – green fields, woods, the Kilcrow river, and wonderful wildlife, this one is a little gem of cross country riding.

Oliver also is master of the Roscommon Hunt during the months of October to February, it’s the local drag hunt and you are always welcome to exercise the hounds with him on horse back in season.

The yard is a traditional old stone farm yard and stables are well bedded with quality shavings.Top quality haylage is given to your horse and you just need to bring your own hard feed.


The accommodation is not onsite at Flowerhill but Oliver has partnered with Gordon’s B&B just a 10 minute drive away. This former public pub is now a private pub and cute/cosy guesthouse run by Caroline and she’ll even offer you a full board deal if you don’t want to go out for dinner. If you’ve brought your lorry and want to leave it at Olivers well thats fine too as Caroline includes transfers to Flowerhill in her rates. Alternatively, guests can stay at The Oak Lodge in Portumma (less than 15 minutes away) that has forest walks and a golf course within walking distance of the accommodation.
