It's a 3 hours tour. About one hour to the beach, one hour there, and one back.
The way to the beach is long and very boring, ride along the road most of the time. The way back is a better, but also I would have pass it.
The part on the beach is great, very beautiful place. You get off ant they take off the settles. than the group is doing together a short ride in the water, than each one is doing a ride with the owner, to where the horses don't stand which is nice. for my daughter it was the best activity in Zakyntos, for me less. Also my horse was very very slow. The guide (is the family's son) is very nice, and he takes many pictures of you with your phone when doing the riding. In the end, in the ranch, you get water bottles and a genorous plate of tasty fruits, which is very nice.

A huge thank you to Mavra and her family for two unforgettable beach rides. The horses are well cared for and you can tell they have a real passion for not only them but their clients as well. A special mention to Denis for his patience with two rusty riders who then had the confidence to canter through the beautiful sand dunes.
Amazing experience thank you again Pauline & Nicky from the UK

I was a beginner so I was really petrified about riding a horse. It was an amazing experience, owner is super nice as well as the rest of the staff we’ve encountered, I was given a pretty chilled horse, Paola, and she was awesome. We were taken to the beach, sand dunes and pine forest, adding to the beautiful scenery, an amazing almost sunset, it was pretty magical. Defo recommend. If I could do it, anyone else can

What a great experiance! You can ride on the horses through beautiful landscape to the beach as well as swim with them in the sea. Everything is perfectly explained. Furthermore if you want to meet the kindest local people you have to try this! The conversation with Niko and other members of family absolutely TOP. Never met as positive people. If possible I would give at least six stars. Highly recommend! 👏🏻

The trip was amazing and the swim in the ionic sea is absolutely an incredible experience. Additionally, the crew was very kind to us and the to horses. The animals are being treated very well, the passion of the family for the horses can be seen in everything they do.
We have some magnificent pictures (that the crew shot during our swim) and memories that won't be forgotten.

We would rate this ride an excellent + (6 stars) and we definitely recommend it!

This was the best horse riding experience I ever had during holidays (and I did a lot in several countries). The horses look fabulous and are fit & healthy which is the most important thing I look at when I go to a stable. Besides that, the tour is really nice with plenty of variation (sea, dunes, road and mountain views). The highlight of the tour is of course swimming with the horses this feeling is undesirable some you need to experience at least once in your life. My boyfriend which has zero experience joined me 1 time and he loved it as well. They matched the perfect horse with his level and it worked out wonderful. Thanks and see you soon!

Back in 2014 I went on the 2 hour beach ride with Laganas horseriding centre. And I still look back at this as the best company that I have ever riden with. The horses are loved and cared for. They only did early morning rides or late rides so the horses waren’t exposed to the heat. Me and my boyfriend (back then) went on a beginners morning ride. I have been riding my entire life but my BF was a beginner. During the ride, the owner noticed that I was going a little off track now and then, just to get a little trot or even small galop in 😅. He called me up front and asked me if I wanted a “real ride”. Of course I said yes!

He phoned and within a short time, another leader came to lead the group and we went towards the hills to have a galop. I was missing my horse back at home and loved that he gave me this beautiful memory. It was turtle season so we could not go on the beach (what I totally understand and support). But still he gave me such a beautiful ride that I still remember up to today. We diddn’t exhaust the horses and went back over a path looking over the beach. As we walked back home we had en very nice talk about the horses that all had names after Greek gods.

I just can’t express how great this ride was and my BF also enjoyed the ride so much (even tho he was a little bit afraid of horses). The horses where so well behaved and looked after very well. After the ride they drank water and could go on a pasture where they could seek shade.

The experience was without a doubt, my best experience while visiting Laganas and also my best riding experience while on a vacation.

Thank you again so much!
