We’re pleased to introduce a new ride: Crete Countryside and Beach. This ride, based in Western Crete, features fabulous beach riding as well as trail rides through the mountainous Cretan countryside. This is also one of few chances to encounter rare Cretan horses and to experience the warmth and hospitality apparent in the traditional villages of the area.
If you’re interested in history then take a trip back into ancient Greece with one of these riding trips or if you’re the thrill-seeking kind, enjoy a long gallop down the beach before trailing up into the mountains. The variety of programmes means that there is something for everyone, from hiking in the hills to relaxing in the Santorini sunshine. Programmes are a mix of interesting day trips, mini safaris and beach rides and this blend means that riders will encounter the most spectacular sea-views and sunsets whilst also having the chance to learn about the history of wildlife of this fascinating area.
If you fancy something different to the programmes provided, a trip to suit you can be arranged. The hosts here offer daily rides to suit all abilities and children from 6yrs and up so packages can be adapted to suit your needs. This would be a great way to soak up some sunshine whilst introducing your child to the joys of horseriding – ride alongside them on a nature walk or watch them in the arena. Alternatively, take some time for yourself and hike to Crete’s amazing gorges, the largest in Europe, and see the stunning turquoise lakes before sampling some delicious and traditional Cretan cuisine in a local restaurant.
