Trails you'd wish you'd get lost in!
Jul 2021 • Friends
Amazing people, stunning landscapes, excellently trained horses!
With every trail you take, you gain insight and experience!
It's a unique western theme park with lots of activities for everyone!
Easy to locate, 30 minutes outside of Thessaloniki, with all the beauty the mountains can provide for an outstanding trip!

Paradise!
Jun 2019
The ranch is located in a beautiful mountain with a valley surrounding it, just 30 minutes from Thessaloniki. The place is just perfect!
The people are very polite, kind and professional and the horses are so well behaved! It's the best place to relax and ride. It doesn't matter if you are experienced or inexperienced rider as they have horses and trail hacks for all the different levels. There is also a restaurant there where you can enjoy one of the american style dishes they serve and a nice cold beer(many different kinds) while you are watching free horses galloping in the field.
The ranch offers a variety of trail hacks in the forest and you can choose to ride for 30 minutes or more (up to three hours depending on the rider's level).
Except from the horses and the restaurant, you can visit the zoo park where they have many farm animals, rabbits, pot belly pigs, a llama and a hilarious ostrich.

I wish I could be there every day!

Experienced horses which you can trust and ride with them and specially Ziogas team is there for you with their biggest smile ready to teach you about the horse and what horseback riding is. I wish I could be there everyday. I suggest it for kids and adults 100% 🔝🔝

High quality, great value for money
Mar 2019 • Friends
Here are so many reasons as to why this stables is 5 stars.

First and foremost, the horses are in beautiful condition and live in a secluded area in a Western Style village away from traffic and pollution. They are fantastically trained and any experienced rider can instantly tell these horses listen very well. Of course, they do have personalities of their own and will take their chance to nibble grasses like any horse would - they are full of charm and very well behaved.
This is also a 5-star package when it comes to value for money. The time listed are hours spent in the saddle, not necessarily the whole trip - we had breaks during the trail , transport to and from the stables. So I actually found I spent a lot more of my day at the stables than 3 hours stated for the advanced tour! You also get to use the equipment (hat etc) with no extra charge, making it brilliant value for money (I have researched riding in many other countries and the price is very reasonable .
For reference, I took the advanced 3 hour tour. It was fabulous - we rode through paddy fields, a local village, forest, and alongside a river. The horses know the route and buzz words (trot, canter etc.) and just get on with it, leaving you to sit back and enjoy the ride. I didn't have to give a lot of instruction and found clicking my tongue was enough to keep them going for longer stretches cantering.
Ziogas guides are very helpful, kind and professional, they make you feel part of their ranch family. After the trail we have spent time all together at the Saloon for cold beers and burgers. Mrs Fotini, the hostess is great, she keeps the place in order. Menu is simple but tasty in country style and great value for money.
I hope this review was helpful. I can certainly say this trek was the highlight of my trip in Greece and is a must-do for horsey people and beginners alike.

Perfect for city-slicker kids
Aug 2017 • Family
THEME PARKS are rare in Greece, and this one was obviously created with love. It's great for a 'different day out'. Four other families with youngsters were there when we were.
LOCATION. Their website has good directions - but note that we missed the turn-off on the main Serres highway because the blue-coloured road sign that reads: Dorkada, Karterai, Leukohori is not the 'official highway' sign, and we spotted it too late - we had to take the next exit and double back). The last bit of unpaved road is a bit rough, but manageable.
STAFF. Owner Fotini and son Christos were extremely friendly and vigilant. Christos saddled a horse for our four-and-a-half year old granddaughter, then patiently waited for us to finish our beverages before taking her for a ride. She was the only one at that moment, so she got a private jaunt.
PRICES. A big perk is that you don't pay an entrance fee (bravo to the Ziogas family!) - you just pay for your drink/snack (only 2 euros for a double Greek coffee) or activity (a reasonable ten euro for a medium-length [25-minute] horseback ride).
HORSE-BACK RIDING. Cowboy Christos was very conscientious. A crash helmet was provided for our granddaughter, then Christos walked her horse up the mountain trail - constantly checking that she was fine (e.g. not spoofed by the horse). Granddad walked along behind them; a walking stick would probably have come in handy.
OTHER ANIMALS. Our tot enjoyed feeding the enthusiastic farm animals. Do remember to bring along a bag of sliced bread for feeding (we remembered at the last minute!).
ATTIRE. Surprisingly there were no flies, but do wear trousers (just in case) and good sports shoes. Although the summer heat was bearable, I think our visit would have been even more comfortable during the other seasons (but not rainy days). For your tot, I suggest you bring along suntan lotion/bug spray/water/hat/bread for animals. And don't forget your camera!

MUST VISIT! LOVELY STUNNING VILLAGE
Jun 2015 • Friends
If you live in Thessaloniki is the best destination for you to leave the city for a while and relax, enjoy the weather and the silence, read a book, play, learn things, discuss.
Ziogas and his family are what you want to see in a great establishment like this one.
Every detail in the saloon is chosen with great care. There are so many things to see. Old photos, old posters, traditional leather jackets, vests, boots, hats etc that you can buy.

I recommend to drink your coffee at the balcony of the saloon in summer enjoying the view and the sounds of nature, talking with Fotini (the wife) and/or Apostolis Ziogas while drinking a coffee. Then, you can go for a ride with the horses but first you have to learn and discuss some basic things with Apostolis! He is a little cute wise man. It's really interesting to discuss with him either you agree with him or not!

I wish i could visit them more often. i love being there.
Last but not least it is important if you want to go solo or with a friend and you want to relax, you must not go on sunny summer weekend. It will probably be crowdy and not so quiet and you wont have the chance to spend time with the Zioga's!
