Lovely trek up the mountains with great sights. Brilliant tour guides. The stables are clean and well maintained. The horses appeared to be brilliantly cared for and happy. Suitable for all abilities! We had Bonnie and Johnnie and look forward to coming back one day!

Hi Maisy, The best thing to do is to have a look at the website and see which ride suits you best. The prices vary according to what you choose and how long the ride is. We went on the two hour ride through the hills. I... More

Hi Connie, send an e-mail but not sure you received... We are arriving into Argostili/Cephalonia on Oceana Cruise Lines on Monday, September 28th 2015. We are interested in your 4 hour mountain to Sea for 4 people. Two experienced with horses, 2 without. Questions: How far is Barvarian Horse Stables from the Cruise port? We are on a smaller vessel, is there more than one dock? How can we arrange transportation from Dock to stables – You provide? (cost), Taxi? What is the cost per person for the ride? Any extra costs we need to be aware of? Will we ride in the sea? Do you suggest riding in jeans/pants, vs. shorts? Do we need special footwear or tennis shoes ok? Do you require a deposit? Will you send confirmation? Thank you for quick reply. We depart US in 3 days!
