Coaching and Facilities


Melanie Wrynn, a high performance coach, is passionate about what she does, having had over 25 years of experience on the competition field.

“I LOVE what I do, I always try to give 150% and after that you can only do your best!” This is the very positive approach Melanie Wrynn displays both in her riding and life in general.

“I think everything is possible and we need to reach for the stars and dream big! You need to have the right focus, commitment and perseverance,” says Wrynn who, over the years, has spent a lot of time training in Germany.

Melanie Wrynn, who is a level 3 Horse Sport Ireland Approved Coach, is well respected in her domain, a natural communicator with a very warm and popular style. Her commitment and passion for the sport, along with her understanding of the physiological element and her attention to detail, makes her an interesting one to train with!

Melanie trains people privately and in groups in dressage, show-jumping and cross country both at home and abroad.

She also enjoys running clinics which take place over several days providing training in all 3 disciplines as well as taking on students on longer term programmes where they come and stay and train at the yard for a set length of time.

Ardeo Sport Horses is well located at Mount John, Newcastle, County Wicklow on the edge of the N11 with close proximity to all the main international transport links – road, sea and air.  This 21-acre site provides both flat and hilly terrain to create a world class training venue for producing Irish Sport Horses.

Thanks to the brilliant Gary Rhodes of Equestrian Surfaces Ardeo Sport Horses has a laser-level flat, fully irrigated arena (40x60cms) with superb footing both in summer and winter.

Seamus Mullan, of Emerald Equestrian, put in a covered walker and covered 20m lunge pen.

An outdoor cross-country playground created by William Micklem, with a superb design, providing nearly limitless options through our water, bank and ditch complexes and built by the well-known cross country builder Tony McMenamin.
