While on a birthday trip to Cyprus, one thing on my 'to do' list was to go riding. Despite not having been on a horse for about 2 years, I had a lovely ride through the hills with the stable manager, Pat. The best way to see the countryside is on horseback! We met herds of goats, marvelled at the spring flowers and the highlight of the ride was sighting a rare bird of prey . We stopped the horses and just watched as the bird slowly circled. You don't need to be young to enjoy a ride in the country! the birthday i was celebrating was my last before the big 60. I hope to come back and celebrate with another ride at Aphrodite Hills Riding Club. My only warning is the long dirt road to get there. If you are staying at the resort transport is provided but we were staying up the coast at another resort. Luckily we had hired a 4x4 for our stay in Cyprus!
