I would like to take a horseback riding vacation in Ireland focused on cross-country jumping. I might have some time in February, is this a good time to go?

I want to take a cross-country riding vacation in Ireleand
I'm considering going in February to either Co. Galway or Co. Wicklow but I'm reading inconsistent things about the weather in February.
One of the providers I spoke to about the riding mentioned I could only do 2 hrs of X-country riding/day because of the wet weather and ground in February. This is inconsistent with the Ireland weather website which shows February as one of the driest months. http://www.met.ie/climate/monthly-data.asp?Num=1475
Is the ground soggy and the weather wet in February in Ireland? Is February an ok time to go - what are the riding conditions likely to be like?
