Beautiful wooden stables overlooking the Paphos forest with magnificent mountainous views to Pano Panayia where the Eurasian and African tectonic plates crashed together, lifting Cyprus up out of the sea. They rise majestically to the far horizon where Pano Panayia nestles on the hillside.Riding beautiful happy thoroughbreds across spectacular varied country - from forest tracks to deserted Turkish villages, mountains and valleys, wide open plains to deep gorges, sea views and places where the entire vista is forest and nothing man made can be seen! Six horses who live as a herd and are very loved, in turn look after their riders, young and old. Rides can be for one hour up to 7 days! Sunset brandy sour rides are very popular in the summer and longer treks in spring and autumn. All abilities are catered for. Groups are small and guided. We also partner horses for Leadership, Team Building and Personal Development Training (Horse Assisted Education) and Horse Healing for Soul Coaching.45 mins from Paphos airport. 1.5km from a traditional, quiet, country hotel.

We went on a small group sunset tour with Ride in Cyprus at the beginning of September. I am a complete beginner and my wife an experienced rider. Caroline was really great and had us on horses in no time, wandering through the Cypriot countryside. She also took tonnes of photos for us. The trip was a lovely way to... More

My daughter and I both ride, we went out on a sundown trek with Caroline through and around the valley. 3 hours later we returned after getting a fantastic perspective of the area of natural beauty literally surrounding the stable yard. After seeing wildlife of all denominations as well as a sunset and views to die for. Best of all... More

My husband, 12 year old daughter and I went for an hour ride. We were of mixed ability with daughter and I having some experience and my husband none. Caroline was really knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming. Her horses looked well kept and happy. We were matched to our horses who were all really well behaved. It didn't matter the difference...

This was my first attempt at horse riding and my fiance and I decided on the sunset trek. The location was stunning and very easy to get to. The dirt track leading to the stables was very easy by car. Firstly I have say what a wonderful lady Caroline is. To say I was a very nervous rider is an... More

Wow thank you for the totally amazing review! You did brilliantly and pushed yourself way out of your comfort zone, you learned so much trust with your horse coach Farouk (he doesn't mind how his name is spelt, he only cares about how you feel!) and from what you say connected on a really 'present' level which will have shifted...

Had a fabulous trek into the hills around Lysos last night. Caroline provided excellent service and instruction, above and beyond anything we could of expected. We have been on treks whilst on holiday in the UK and felt a little underwhelmed and short changed by the experience. There were too many highlights from the trip in stunning scenery to mention...

Caroline Penman is not just a world-class horsewoman, she is a very genuine, erudite and interesting person. Her warmth and kindness to us made this trek memorable, and the vistas that opened up as the horses went higher up the paths can only be described as breathtakingly beautiful. The incline of the paths at each stage of the trek is... More

Thank you for writing your review and so glad you appreciated the glory that is Megatron - I am so lucky to have him with us in the herd, so you too can experience the scenery with the rest of your family whose horses would have been too small :-) See you next time :-) More

Had a fantastic ride with Caroline at Ride in Cyprus. Amazing scenery and Caroline was full of interesting info about the landscape. Her horses are beautiful, well schooled and very fit. As experienced riders it was a real pleasure for both me and my 10 year old daughter. Thank you.
