Horse carriage ride Aegina
Jul 2020 • Family
Horse and carridge at Aegina. By the port , they look after there horses terrible!! It upset me so much. No water out in the heat. 36 degrees waiting to ride some silly people around. They should have water there and spray them and have shade. The people who look after them don’t speak English so I could not do anything about it. I will not ever come there again how terrible for these poor animals!!

A good ride though

Me and my girlfriend were shocked as we saw 5 very thin horses which seemed to eat the dirt of the ground. 4 of these 5 horses could arguably considered to be healthy taking into account that Aegina was in a rather dry and hot season. But one of the horses really seemed to starve. Fortunately we got the two healthiest horses and had a Nice route so it was a nice ride. Furthermore, Stelios was very nice to me and my girlfriend.

Fantastic hour + Horse riding
Aug 2018 • Family
After setting up the trip via email we arrived on Aegina we were soon met by Stelios. He is a very charismatic character and makes you feel very welcome.
After a short taxi ride to the horses(€4-5) we were introduced to our horses. The horses are brilliant with beginners and are not fazed by traffic and dogs barking.
The scenery you pass by is absolutely stunning and Stelios stops you at a small off road area for a photo opportunity.
What a fantastic memory we will take home with us.
If you are on Aegina or even across in Athens like us this is a must. Ferries are regular and easy to book. We used Saronic Ferries which cost just over €70 return for a family of four.
Hope I make it again one day

A great hour horseback riding in Aegina
Mar 2018 • Couples
We knew we wanted to horseback ride on Aegina when we got there, but weren't quite sure how to set it up. Our airbnb host recommended we go to the port to speak to Stellios. He doesn't speak much English, so a horse and buggy driver helped translate with us, and Stellios told us to come back the next day at an earlier time. The next day we did so, and he drove with us to a small crop of land where he keeps his two horses. There, he made it super easy to get right on the horses and go for a ride through the suburban streets of Aegina, stopping at a lighthouse to take pictures for us too. He was a great guide, and we really enjoyed the experience!

Since it was off-season I don't think he had as much business, which is why it was so easy for us to set up an impromptu ride, so if you're visiting in the summer, I'd try to get in contact with him a bit ahead of time. When we visited he only had two horses grazing, so it'd be a good idea to check about larger groups if you plan on riding with more than two people. We also heard that in summer it's possible to ride the horses along the beach, which sounds like a great experience as well. All in all, 20 euros per rider for an hour was a great price, and a great overall experience!

15 minutes of fun!

Good way to have a first glance of Aegina port when you arrive at the island. Recommended in Spring or Autumn, or after the sun has set in Summer, because you might get sunburnt. It ;s scenic and it lasts 15 minutes for 15 euros. I enjoyed doing it!

Horseriding on small roads between pistachio and olive trees and by the sea shore.

Riding with Stellios in Aegina is a pleasent experience. You book through english lady by e-mail and find Stellios by the port were all the cart horses are. He will take you to a place were you start your ride. Horses are very calm, and cool with traffic, and you don't have to have experience to ride. His horses seem well kept (especially compared to many of the horses I saw in Greece) although their gear is quite old and by the end of the ride we wished we could have stayed to give them water (I am sure they got some right after we left).
Roads are mostly asphalt so it is only walking and little trotting (at least the ride we had) and no place where you could canter. So for all experienced rider it is not so much of an exiting riding experience. But it is nice equestrian time, and of course you see beautiful views and country roads you probably wouldn't otherwice.
