I've been riding for over 20 years and never had any issues; however, my horse did not listen as well as she should and at one point threw me off and I ended up with a back injury. My friend fell off his horse as well, but he was a beginner and mostly lost his balance. The guide showed a... More

Then driven back to Hernonissis for an amazing home cooked lunch. We,mum and me, were in a group of four with two young ladies from Germany and nothing was too much... More

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.

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
