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

Tired of beaches? Not interested in monasteries, cemeteries or city centres, souvenir shops, tourist traps etc. like us? This place was a great refreshement of our vacation routine. Even though we never rode a horse before, the staff made it easy and understandable and we enjoyed our 2 hour evening ride also thanks to our guide, miss Victoria, who was... More

Connie and her beautiful horses are the highlight of my son's holiday. They are in excellent condition and look wonderful. His trip of four hours took them through the hills to the sea and he cant wait to return. Yammas and Tschus xx

As myself & my family are novice riders, we decided on a hour and a half trek into the mountains. The staff at the stables were very helpful as we set off on our ride, and the owner, who led the ride was really nice to chat to about the local area as we trekked along. The horses are very... More

My wife, daughter and I took one of the three-hour sunset rides. I should point out that my daughter rides but that this was the first time on a horse for a long,long time for my wife and I. The stables are easy to find and the rates of €20 per hour not unreasonable. We had a lovely ride up... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a lovely 3 hour ride from the stables. The horses were very well behaved and beautiful! A pleasant way to explore the Kefalonian countryside.

I's never been horse-riding before, although my partner had as a child. The Haflinger horses are sturdy and very sure-footed on the mountain trail we went on. I'd recommend you wear one of the hats provided as even bending forwards over the horse to avoid some low branches won't stop small branches scraping your head otherwise. The horses and stables...

Kefalonia is as close to Heaven on Earth as I have seen. Conney's rides give you a unique view of this island of paradise. The barn, grounds and horses are clean,loved, and well maintained. Conney's love for horses is apparent. The wonderful Haflingers will take you up mountainous regions to hidden monasteries, earthquake destroyed ancient villages, and orchards of flowers... More
