Beautiful wooden stables overlooking the Paphos forest with magnificent mountainous views to Pano Panayia where the Eurasian and African tectonic plates crashed together, lifting Cyprus up out of the sea. They rise majestically to the far horizon where Pano Panayia nestles on the hillside.Riding beautiful happy thoroughbreds across spectacular varied country - from forest tracks to deserted Turkish villages, mountains and valleys, wide open plains to deep gorges, sea views and places where the entire vista is forest and nothing man made can be seen! Six horses who live as a herd and are very loved, in turn look after their riders, young and old. Rides can be for one hour up to 7 days! Sunset brandy sour rides are very popular in the summer and longer treks in spring and autumn. All abilities are catered for. Groups are small and guided. We also partner horses for Leadership, Team Building and Personal Development Training (Horse Assisted Education) and Horse Healing for Soul Coaching.45 mins from Paphos airport. 1.5km from a traditional, quiet, country hotel.

Wonderful experience: the horses are really nice, healthy and well kept, perfect for children and first-timers and for experienced riders and the ride through the hills is incredible. The guides are also truly great

As both my partner and I were not experienced riders we needed lots of help and encouragement. Amazing views over Polis and Latchi we both... More

The trail is gorgeous, the horses are healthy and happy, and the equipment is ideal-- Caroline supplies jodhpurs, boots, half-chaps, and helmets... the whole shebang. It's a gorgeous trip for experienced riders; those with less of a background in riding should be prepared for a challenge. This is no nose-to-tail trail riding that you've done a thousand times! You are... More

Our second trek with Ride in Cyprus. As our first ride last year, this year it exceeded our expectations. Loz took my husband and I up into the forest and for the whole 2 hour ride, we didn't see or hear another person. The only sounds were the birds singing, and the horses hooves. The views and scenery were breathtaking.... More
