    Had the best best time riding the horses in the morning session along the beach. The horses are so well behaved and well cared for. All the people we met were great and took lots of photos for us to look back on. Even got to spend time with all the dogs and puppies before and after the session!!! We are so glad we did it, definitely recommend!

    Morning ride of my life!
    Went on the morning ride and enjoyed 2.5 hours of riding bliss through beautiful landscapes which included a ride in the sea! This was the ride of my life!! We were safe and in good hands with Thanasi riding on our ‘GPS’ horse and his beautiful daughter Michaela as our guide. Weather was perfect, horses were well mannered and could not ask for anything more. Such a gorgeous island for this ride that may become your best Greek Island memory like it was for me!! Highly recommended!! Note: I wore my exercise capris (dried quickly) and running shoes that dried in the sun after 2 days. Michaela takes many videos and pics for you which she shares with you afterward but I recommend taking your phone so you can take the pics you like if you like photography!!

    Great thing to do in Paros
    Thank you Michaela and father Thanadis. As a first time rider we really enjoyed the evening tour! Michaela and her father were very friendly and relaxed people. We got clear instructions and the horses were well trained and listened well. It was a slow paced walk in the hills with some steep ascending and descending parts. Also there were parts where the horses were going faster and we could try to balance on the saddle (difficult, but we tried our best and when it worked it was really fun). We also enjoyed the farm: many cute dogs, sheep, goats and even a group of deer.

    Thanasis Farm - A must in Paros!
    Went to Thanasis Farm several years ago for the first time - my first experience with horses - and ever since it has become a must when I visit Paros! Except for teaching you basic and advanced horse riding skills, they also show you how to love and respect horses. They are so friendly and genuine people and make the experience 100 times better. The horses’ well-being is undeniable and you can find there retired horses that live even longer than 35 years of age! I highly recommend giving them a visit (it’s a nice place with dogs, cats, deers and other animals) and riding the morning trail to the beach to swim with the horses Ps: Michaelia, Thanasis’ daughter, is a great photographer as well so here’s some photos of us throughout the years :)

    Wonderful horse riding in water
    We took a morning ride with Michaela and her father on October. We had a wonderful experience! The horses are very clean and very well treated 😍. The place is charming , there are a lot of different animals there, your children will love it ! Michaela is a very nice person, she explains very well if you are not used to ride a horse, and if you have experience, you can stil enjoy galloping with her. The riding on the water was another great experience! This is one of the best horse ride experience I have ever done in my travels, and also one of the best experience in Paros. It is a bit expensive, but after you have done the ride, you know why… 🐴

This was the most incredible riding adventure I have ever experienced! This family farm is amazing, and the horses were both calm and fun to ride. Riding in the water at the beach was incredible! Hope to return again soon.

Please please DO NOT ride at Thanisis Horse Farm!! Their description is misleading….they have “tethered” several horses and a donkey without shelter in historical heat >90 degrees!! Allegedly they “lease” horses and donkey to others so their grass is trimmed!! Really??? No SHELTER!!! Horses should not be out 24/7 as they poor animals are In heat >27C!!!!

Hello AGAIN and thank you for your rate. Please find the correct owner of the donkeys you refer to and show on the photos and before you blame somebody make a research and be sure. All our horses have shade when the temperature gets higher and they need it and they are super healthy and happy. Feel free to bring a vet and check all our animals. The police has been informed about your case, post and attacking emails you’ve been sending to us and they will take all the measures required. Please ,If you really love animals try to help animals in real need as we also do all these years. Thank you again for your time. All the best, Thanasis & Michaelia Thanasis Farm Paros Horse Riding Center.

Such a wonderful experience and beautiful way to experience Paros!! Michaelea was so warm, friendly and knowledgeable. Our tour was in the off season and ended up being a private tour of just my daughter and I! The ride was beautiful and the photos taken of us along the way were an added bonus! The entire experience was wonderful from start to finish, would do it again and again!

Was absolutely amazing!! Loved every minute of it! We were here on the off season and was very happy to find something that we could do. The horses were very well trained and we felt very safe. Going through the water was such a fun experience; so happy that it was included! And then the views!! I was not expecting such stunning views along the way! Just amazing!
To top it all off, our guide took photos of us along the way and airdropped them to us at the end...I was not expecting this at all at it was the cherry on top! We got some amazing photos! THANK YOU for a great experience!
