I had a wonderful ride along the coast with Harriet earlier today! Hydra is an extremely pretty island, and it was well worth getting up early(ish) to avoid the midday heat. The horses are very calm - suitable for riders of any level - and Harriet is keeping group's small in order to mitigate COVID-19 related risks. For anyone holidaying in Greece in the complex summer of 2020, I highly recommend some time out on Hydra (only 1.5 hours from Athens) and with Harriet and her lovely horses.

Harriet's Hydra Horses is a great riding school for novice and experienced riders alike. We booked a morning excursion up to one of the monasteries. We were welcomed by Harriet in person, she is very friendly and professional, where she talked us through the ride, provided our riding equipment and carefully checked that everything was adjusted and fitted properly regards the safety equipment and saddles etc. All equipment is hygienic and new hair nets were provided for use inside the riding hats.
The ride was most enjoyable lasting around two and a half hours, with a half hour stop at the monastery to enjoy some refreshments, enjoy the breath-taking views, take photos and rest in the shade. Our guide also kindly made regular stops for photos at scenic points.
I would definitely recommend this experience to everyone who would like to enjoy some riding while visiting Hydra.

This has been our third time visiting Hydra and we always book one of Harriet’s horse rides. It’s a great way to see the island and the trek that leads to the four seasons hotel means you can have breakfast and stop at the beach for the day.
We highly recommend - Harriet is very knowledgeable and puts you at ease if you are new to horse riding.

Harriet is a very professional and experienced guide and rider who loves her horses and takes good care of them. Comfortable saddles, good caps. She offers different tours on the island and puts safety at the first place. We did a 3 hour tour to a monestary, which was a great experience! If you want to ride a horse on Hydra, book tour trip with her!

Harriet is awesome, and she provided an amazing experience for our family. She was quick to respond and took care of us during our riding adventure through Hydra. We had our two kids with us (6 and 4) and she did a wonderful job of keeping them calm. We had so much fun. Definitely contact her for a wonderful experience!

I’ve rode horses for years, and it was so cool to see them used like they are on the island. They are used for transportation and hauling stuff around. When I saw there was the opportunity to swim with the horses in the sea I had to take it! The horses were very well behaved. It was an incredible time from going up and down narrow steps, to cantering along the path by the ocean on the way back, and, of course, swimming in the sea with them!

I took a group out with Harriet yesterday, there were 8 of us. One has never ridden a horse before and was petrified, another 2 had had traumatic experiences on horses. Her calm charming manner, patience with those who had fear was the best I've ever seen. She was absolutely incredible and the horses are fabulous. Its a great way to explore this hilly town. Highly recommend!

We thoroughly enjoyed riding with Harriet! She walked alongside our horses and provided us excellent photos of the experience as well as giving helpful tips to make the ride smoother. She must really work hard and give lots of love to her horses, they are so docile and sweet. She also rescues horses around the island (just like the horse I had) and gives them a better life.

This is 100% the experience you want to have, 10/10 would ride again!

Hariett is the absolute best! As newlyweds we were looking for a fun way to explore the island. This is absolutely the best way to do that and the best person to do that with. We did a 6 hour ride. Neither of us are in particularly good shape and we hadn't been in a horse in a few years but her horses are so well behaved and so sweet that they were patient with us as we got used to it again. My experience is limited to only a couple of rides in my life so this will be great for riders of all levels as far as I can tell. We got beautiful views of the beaches, the countryside, navigated through the town (up and down those stairs was an experience we'll always remember). What an incredible day with a great guide who's so much fun. We highly recommend this as a way to spend your time in Hydra very wisely.

With no experience of horses at all, I decided to try my luck on this mountain trek with Harriet as my guide. It was a fabolous experience and my horse, Dennis the Menace was a wonderful animal. This was definitely one of the high lights of my stay at the beautiful island of Hydra.
