My children, twin girls aged 12 wanted to try horse riding and this was next door to our hotel. Their 2 horses were chosen specifically because they were good with children and calm and they were escorted for a full hour ride along the beach. They loved it. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

It was fantastic! Gregory the owner and Hassan the instructor are two of the kindest and funniest people we met in Greece. My friend and I were shown the best time. If ever you want to ride on a horse on one of the most beautiful beaches with the funniest people this is definitely where you should go! No doubt... More

Two of our family members couldn't make it as they'd been ill during the night so only my mum and I went. The manager sorted out another day for us all to go horse riding again, but along the beach so that Noone would miss out and no money would be wasted. Such an amazing company, with great people and... More

The manager was extremely helpful and funny and Hassan our guide was very much the same! They both seemed to really care about our experience and the horses. We had an amazing two hours where we got to see lots of the coast, town and more rural areas. My boyfriend had never ridden a horse before but had a great... More

Came across this brilliant place as I love horse riding. Even if it was just for an hour it was magical, horses are well looked after and the staff are friendly and so helpful. Would recommend this place to anyone on Holiday or even local, especially those staying at the Belvedere Hotel, literally on your door step - Sophie.
