My friend and I stayed with Conny and rode her horses everyday for a week in April and it was excellent. The horses are absolutely beautiful, well behaved and obviously well cared for and loved. Conny picked horses that were the best fit for us from the very first day. I rode a couple other horses during the week but... More

Gunther Schopf has a made his dream come true and offers riding Holidays on his Noriker horses. Next year his Tiger Hill Ranch is going to replace the Klosterwirt at Rinchnach and the sleeping and eating will take place only yards away from the horses.

Beautifully cared for, well bred, well schooled, well mannered Haflinger ponies, breath taking mountain trails, totally safe and good company - a refreshing and delightful experience. These are ponies who are part of a family and are proud about the work they do. It's a relaxing experience which all the family can enjoy at whatever level. I am an experienced,... More

This place is EPIC!! As a pony lover I beg my parents to take me to a stable and as we drove past a sign saying that there is a stable nearby I jumped at the chance of going! So when we arrived we had to do the usual sign a few documents and things. Then Connie asked me if... More

We did a 2 hour ride up to a spot in the mountains of Kefallonia overlooking the ocean. Yes, Connie is assertive, but you can't take it personally. She just cares immensely for her horses. You are paired with a horse that is geared towards your experience level. We had a great time and would go back.

Thoroughly enjoyable evening ride. Well organised and professionally run. We had 3 hour ride up the mountain on rocky track and horses were steady and sure footed.

I would like to reply to Veiga2001's adverse comments on the Sea Ride that he/she obviously did not enjoy. The Haflinger is a breed from the Austrian-Bavarian border and used to carrying burdens of up 160 KG in very high altitudes. Connie limits the weight that her horses carry to 110 Kg. 15 Stones as mentioned by this rider converts... More

I was nervous to go riding after breaking my hip at the end of last year. However, what wonderful, sure-footed horses these were! Four of us took a 1.5 hour trek up the mountain and it was a wonderful experience. The staff were patient and were quite happy to lead so that everyone enjoyed themselves. Great stable, the horses are... More

Horses and the riding experience were not suited to competent riders, despite what the advertisement flyers throughout the island state. Although a strong breed, in my view even a Haflinger which is essentially pony-sized, should not be carrying a rider of more than 15 stones (and on our ride at least one rider was over 18 stones in weight). In... More

Dear veiga2001, We are sorry to read that you didn’t have the experience you were hoping for. We would like to respond to a few points you made to clarify how we run things here. The halflinger breed is a very sturdy breed and is meant to carry heavy loads. We recently had a veterinarian who works specifically with this... More
