Horse riding creates a sense of freedom which is rare to find in other sports. So, the time has come to try it out. There is no reason to worry whether you are experienced or not. Apostolos will reveal the secrets of horsemanship: how to control a horse, how to maintain your balance on the horse and more.

Fotini, Christos, Babis who are very experienced trail leaders, will help you act on your impulses on the horses. Use your legs to hold tight on the horse and embark on your adventure. We climb up on the hills, we pass through the woods while being whipped by the branches and twigs of the trees; we gallop on the safest parts of the trail and there is nobody ever wanting this magnificent adventure to end. The duration of the trail will depend on you and your skills.

 

THE TRAILS

The “short” trail for youngsters or even teens, around the ranch, the first connection with the horse. All horses are accompanied by experienced instructors.

“Cofto”(The shortcut) is a trail of about 20 minutes. We climb up St George’s hill and right before the peak we set on our way back. The view is extraordinary. The team is accompanied by experienced instructors who either walk next to the horses or ride on them.

“Pefkakia”(The pine trees) is a trail of about 45 minutes but it can be less if we gallop for long. The trail is exquisite. The team is accompanied by a number of instructors depending on the number of the riders and their lever of riding skills.

Extreme pefkakia(Extreme pine trees), Vrahos (the “Rock”), extreme vrahos (rock), dasaki (the “woods”), all are trails for more experienced riders or more adventurous beginners.


Attention: You approach, touch and ride our horses under your own responsibility.
