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

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
