We spent an amazing week with the stables ride everyday. Conny the owner is great and will make you feel very welcome. The horses are very well schooled. We're looking at taking a group back this year for more riding. Could not recommend a better place to go. The views from horse back are some oh the best you will... More

I'd emailed Connie before we left the UK, but finalised the details for the ride when we arrived in Kefalonia. Connie was very accommodating about the date and time and what we wanted and our differing levels of experience. The girls at the stable were delightful and really friendly. The ride itself was stunning, the views, the tinkling of the... More

I cannot recommend these stables highly enough. Connie and her team were incredibly helpful at making our ride just right. The ponies are obviously really well cared for and are real characters. The ride was beautiful and gentle and I'm sure the ponies enjoyed it as much as we did. I'm an experienced horse rider, but my husband isn't, and... More

I went for an evening ride in the hills above Sami , a lovely experience. I ride most weeks back in the UK. The horses/ponies well well kept and cared for and the horses were most surefooted. The ride leader was most professional and the stables and facilities were good. The stables cater for all levels and that in it's... More

I would be able to totally sympathise with Majeo about his disappointment at his ride being cancelled at the last moment, I to love riding. I know Connie and was in Kefalonia at the time he had a ride booked. Yes Connie did cancel for "personal reasons" it was due to a sensitive medical problem with a member of her... More

After four years and eight visits to Kefalonia we finally in September 2015 decided to try horse riding. How can one describe it, where can one begin ?. What an amazing wonderful experience. We found everybody so helpful especially when we informed them that my wife and I were complete novices. The girls responsible for our safety were fantastic. All... More

This was a trip for out horse mad daughter. We had a wonderful 2 hour ride up the mountains near Skala. The stables catered for all types of riders from experienced to very novice riders like myself. My guide Natasha chatted to me throughout telling me about the area and putting me at ease, we all really enjoyed it.

Our 7 year old son did a 1 hour lesson on the last evening of our holiday which he thoroughly enjoyed. The staff are all really friendly and knowledgeable and speak excellent English. The horses are obviously well cared for and looked after.

OK its a rubbish title but the horse rides at this place really are awesome! Myself, my wife and 2 kids are all beginners and we went on a 1.5hr morning ride with Connie, the German owner and Helena her assistant. The horses are all experienced and fairly placid beasts that will take you safely up the hillside and down... More
