We had a lovely evening (despite the rain!) going up the mountains through the olive groves on horseback. I have ridden before but my boyfriend hadn't and he was a bit nervous but the staff were very reassuring (and a bit crazy!) The horses were well looked after and mostly calm. One of the workers kept giving us the most... More

We were met by Gregory from our hotel in Kokkini Hani, who immediately made us feel welcome and had us in stitches in the mini bus on the way! On arrival the people at the stables were extremely friendly and helpful with the horses. The introductions to everyone else on the tour and their paired horses was great fun as... More

Eddie picked us up from our hotel in the mini bus and we drove off to the stables which took about 20 minutes (from Kokkini Hani). We were assigned our helmets and our horses (who had some hilarious names)...and even we got new names for the day (I was baptised 'Barbie', my boyfriend was 'Ken'). Our group had mixed ability...

My daughter and I went here whilst on holiday in hersonissos and we had a fantastic time the men that run it are very friendly and make you feel right at home. We have both ridden horses before but there were a lot of people who had not and everyone enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

I'd ridden before, my boyfriend hadn't. This made no different at all. Everyone at the stables was friendly, welcoming and made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. We rode though the hills during sunset-gorgeous scenery. We spent the whole night laughing and the BBQ at the end really felt like a family dinner. The horses are beautiful, the company amazing and... More

We had such a great time, the views were beautiful, the horses were well looked after and the food afterwards was out of this world. This was all topped of by the owner Greg who had us in stitches and couldn't do enough for us. Thank you!

The whole experience from start to finish was quite unforgettable. The Owner picked us up from our hotel and we were the only people riding that day as it was the end of the season. He gave us some education on origin of words (see My Big Fat Greek Wedding for identical example) and was very friendly. I got a... More

A family of 5 including 3 adult offspring [ranging from nil to modest riding experience], the well-turned out horses ably catered for our entire spectrum whilst a birthday celebration was most charmingly included after lunch for our 19 year old daughter. We booked privately before we left England and Greg's emails were the best! The hour's drive from Rythymno and... More
