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

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

We stayed near Heraklion on our vacation on Crete, that combined with the excellent reviews made me contact Gregory for a ride. We had a wonderful time. We were picked up promptly at 830 from our Hotel, our guide Eddy was lots of fun and helped us get our energy going! Upon arrival we sat for some coffee and enjoyed... More

Simply amazing excursion. Cannot express how brilliant of a day we had. Horse riding and more! First of all, as a horse lover and enthusiast, I would like to say that this company is passionate about the horses they own. They are in superb condition and seem very happy in their homes. As a horse lover this was great to... More
