Me and my partner took our first trip to zakynthos in August, and being my first ever trip abroad, was a little aprehensive.
The horse riding was our first excursion in zakynthos, and was very happy to say it was such a pleasant experience! The riding centre was about a 5 min quad bike ride away from our hotel 'Astir Beach' so was nice and close however mavra was more than happy to pick us up and drop us back. It was a late afternoon ride, so not too hot. Mavra was very friendly and made us feel comfortable she also offered us riding hats which wasn't compulsory. We were guided by her partner nikos who was also very pleasant. The horses were lovely, healthy and well behaved :)! The relaxing ride lasted an hour and this was around the island with some really nice scenic views, across fields, through woodlands and sand dunes and avoiding the main roads. Only tiny gripe was I consider myself a knowledgable rider and there was no trotting/cantering or gallop as in some posts experienced. My partner hadn't had much experience so I wasn't too worried. But would had been nice if he experienced a little trotting as well :-). However as I say going through previous posts this is the first it has been mentioned so dont let that put you off! :). It was amazing to do! And only cost €20 each. Must do! Thanks for a great day :-D!
