We really njoyed the trek which was 1.5 hours long. Connie the owner is very friendly, funny and helpful with a straight to the point manner. We trekked through the hills above Sami and it is suitable for all ages and abilities as it is just a walk with no cantering or galloping due to the rocky nature of the... More

The yard is kept to a good standard very clean and well set out. Was taken out by Kate who was from england doing a season out in sami. Chat and information of where we were passing through was really interesting. Amazing views. My parter doesnt ride and he got off after the 2 hours to say he enjoyed it... More

My daughter (11) loves horse-riding so we went to check the stables out before booking for her. We were absolutely reassured that the horses are looked after beautifully. The no-nonsense owner Connie & her staff were so helpful and reassuringly safety conscious that we all ended up going (2 non-riding adults and a 3 year old!) on a trek up... More

As horse owners it's always nice to turn up to commercial stables and it be spotlessly clean and the horses very well looked after. The stable uses Haflinger's which are steady-footed, strong and good-mannered. Connie and her 'girls' are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Email contact to book our hack was easy and the 1 1/2hours were a very reasonable 35Euros... More

Having been coming to Kefalonia for many years, it's always a challenge to find something new to do as a holiday 'event'! This year was horse riding, and having passed the Bavarian Stables many times over the years we knew exactly where to go. We called in a Wednesday on our way to Assos and booked for Friday and left... More

We booked this trip through the stables website and went on the four hour hack up to the ancient olive groves. The views were stunning, however there was not much of a place to trot or canter. The horses were exceptionally well looked after and relitively well behaved. The stables were lovely in a picturesque setting,well organised and very clean.... More

I was stunned to find how perfectly Kefalonia matches the guide books - it always looked too good to be true! The horses are wonderfully looked after and loved, and the guides know the animals and the terrain. Rides were matched to our ability and requirements, and the hosts were able to recommend excellent activities for the afternoons and evenings... More

Such a well run, clean, neat and tidy stable. The lady who owns it took us on a one hour ride for 20 euros per head which I thought was great value. She was so friendly but at the same time, very professional. Our ride went up the mountain and we had some spectacular views of the coastal village below.... More

As a family with two young, keen riders and inexperienced adult riders we were a little worried about whether the riding would suit us all. Connie and Catherine are a very professional team and the horses are beautifully cared for. We booked for the 90 minute hack and really enjoyed it. Riding hats were available and made me feel a...

Connie took our 5 year old and 8 year old on their first trip on a horse up to the mountains for an hour, it was their favourite thing they did in the two weeks we were away! Thank you so much! Very Happy children!
