Returned last week and it was lovely to see Niko and Mavra again. A bit quiet so just Niko and I went out in the dunes and had such a great, fun ride I went 4 more times in a week!
My roan mare Smaragda looks quite ordinary (lovely of course!) but has the heart and soul of a racehorse! Niko says she is so clever she knows when she has a less experienced rider up and must be a good, quiet girl, but with me she really enjoyed going fast on the sandy tracks in the dunes. A really brilliant horse and a total sweetie. Niko's new grey mare Duchess is a beauty too. See their website and Facebook for photos.
Don't be put off that the "stables" are just a field, and the tack room is a trailer! This is Niko's summer base-camp away from their proper stables and right next to the best countryside and beach. The other stable in the area has to trek quite a distance on the roads to have less than half an hour in Kalamaki dunes but with Niko and Mavra you just have to cross the road and you're there. Sadly still could not ride actually on the beach itself cos it's nearly Turtle time.
The best riding I've had in Greece and I'm looking forward to the next time.
