One of the highlights of our trip! Mavra picked us up at the dock, stopped at a local store and we got some fabulous pastries, and then went to meet the horses. Mine was Bobby. He was gentle and easy to ride. Marya took us on a great ride along the beach and surrounding countryside. After our ride was over, she dropped us at a local restaurant where we enjoyed a great meal. Our fellow cruisers were very envious that we got to experience Zante away from the tourist center and to meet local people who made us feel at home! Highly recommend.

My daughter and partner are both experienced riders, me a novice, the goffer and chauffer!!
We all went on a ride with Maria, Mavras daughter and were all well catered for and had a fantastic time. The horses are obviously well looked after and much loved, their welfare is without doubt paramount to the owners. Nikos is a character, passionate about horses and a great bloke. My daughter Meg is an excellent rider and Nikos let her school his prized stallion after the ride which she loved, there was no need for him to do this but it made her day.
I would highly recommend a visit for all standards of riders. Nikos, Mavra and Maria were brilliant, I can't sing their praises enough, when we return to Zakynthos we will definitely be paying them another visit. Thanks for a brilliant day.

I have founded Laganas Horse Riding Centre on internet and after reading great reviews on Trip Advisor I have decided contact Mavra before arriving to Zakynthos and book my riding. I don’t have much experience in horse riding – I have had few lessons when I was a kid. I am glad I have picked them – we were staying in the hotel next two the range and every day we were passing this place while going to eat in Laganas. Horses are beautiful, looked after really well. Like mentioned previously I have contacted Mavra before arriving on holiday and decided to book an hour riding on 25th September (just a day before our leave date). I have than visited centre and changed the time of my riding and while chatting to Mavra she advised to take some long trousers and proper shoes – otherwise I would just turned up with shorts and flip flops I am regretting a little bit as if I would do that on the beginning of holiday, I would definitely go back to the centre for another hour or two Horse I was riding was very well behaved, scenery where we were riding was beautiful – next to the Kalamaki beach (as on the beach turtles laid their eggs so horses are not allowed). I have made mistake and didn’t take camera with me so if you are going for a ride don’t forget like I did as you will get great shots.
Thanks very much for great experience – I loved it and the only regret is that because it was our last day before returning to UK (were leaving next day morning) I couldn’t return to your range for another riding session. Aga C.

I went on holiday this summer and wanted to horse ride, Nikos and Mavra are so friendly and helpfull, the horses are very well behaved and look very well cared for, there are horses for all abilities, novice to advanced. The ride its self was brilliant and I felt 100% safe at all times. I would highly recommend visiting laganas riding school whilst on holiday in Zakynthos, fantastic day with some beautiful horses, can't wait for next year! Thanks, Carley x
