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.

We had a hard time finding the location and when we called for assistance the help we received was none too friendly. We found the owner had an unpleasant attitude and was not patient with me, an inexperienced and fearful rider. I was put on a very large horse and was repeatedly scolded for not controlling him well. Who needs... More

From the minute I contacted Caroline and her staff, I felt this was going to be a special experience and I wasn't wrong! I booked a 2 hour ride for myself and my husband. My husband is a beginner and I am experienced but have lost a lot of confidence which I stated in my email. We found the directions... More

I went on a lovely two hour evening hack up into the mountain and forest with brilliant guide, Lauren and fantastic, huge, Megatron -a wonderful, responsive horse. The location and setting are breathtaking. I met the whole team and owner, Caroline - the customer care is excellent and I could not recommend this riding experience too highly. Thank you for...

We enjoyed the ride with Elsa who was extremely professional and an amazing guide. The sunset ride up the hills was an unforgettable experience. A must try for those looking for a scenic and enjoyable afternoon. Thank you Elsa. Recommended for beginners as well!

Absolutely fantastic ride, the horses are so beautifully looked after and well behaved. The sunset scenery is absolutely stunning. Our guide for the ride, Laurieanne? (Sorry about the spelling) was amazing, giving us lots of info as well as keeping the kids (9&6) entertained. All in all a brilliant experience that we all loved and would definitely do again. If...

I'll add my glowing review to the many others below. We had a great sunrise ride. I was nervous as a dad with 3 young children (4,6&8) and whether they would be safe. I needn't have worried at all, they couldn't have looked after them any better. Great day. As for me I was sat 10 stories high on the... More

Had a fantastic evening riding into the mountains last night. The horses were wonderful, so well-behaved and really tuned into the abilities of each of us. We were a group of 4, two had ridden previously but not for some time and two were new to the experience. The staff spent time making sure that each of us got something... More

Thank you! What a lovely review! We especially like to encourage a mixed ability group of friends to ride together and generally let the experienced ones have a canter or two, while protecting the new riders who do not wish to! Our horses live as a herd together and understand the routine and absolutely don't mind these circumstances where there... More

Horses were really well looked after and cared for. Elsa & Lauriane were very welcoming, explained what would happen and kitted us out in all our gear. Lauriane took us on the 2 hour sunrise ride, after our arrival at 6am at the stables. We are novices but this was no problem as Lauriane looked after us, was very experienced... More

Isn't the sunrise ride worth getting up for - in the pale light of dawn before the heat gets up! So happy you enjoyed the breathtaking views and the set up we have here, we feel privileged to be here and able to offer this experience - really glad you came :-) Thank you for the amazing review!
