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

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

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
