Yanni is a legend and gave my husband and I an experience that we will never forget. His wife picked us up from our hotel and drove us to their farm where we met the beautiful and very well cared for horses. We went through the olive groves for an hour where at times Yanni whistled music from the westerns which was hilarious. We came to a stunning secluded cove where Yanni unsaddled the horses before we went into the sea on them bare backed, it was truly amazing, the horses were actually swimming with us on their backs! After we made our way back to the farm with good opportunities for some great photos. Yanni is an absolute star, the horses were incredible and gave us no cause for concern and we had a magical time, worth every penny.

Little trips around the town on the horses - so cute - so much fun. when you have a little one who begs to go on these horses every night, you get to know Yanni and his drivers. Absolutely loved it, well worth a try :)

We were just expecting a short ride through the hills and a quick dip in the sea with the horses... Well it was far from it we got to the farm and was greeted by a very cheerful yanni who is a very genuine and lovely man, he allowed us to go around the farm and look at all his horses which were all well kept in excellent conditions, we then mounted the horses and didn't know what to expect myself and experienced rider and my partner a beginner yanni walked by his side all the way ensuring he was okay the views were amazing once we got to the sea we went swimming with the horses it's was gorgeous and we all enjoyed ourselves . The whole ride was a joy yanni himself is a happy lovely man who cares so much for his horses and ensures you enjoy the experience to the fullest if we return to alykes we will Definately be going back to yannis stables and on his cart around the village at night :)

I have ridden horses in this country for many years and have been tempted many times to ride while on holidays mainly in Spain and Greece, but have been put off because the horses always look so skinny and sad, tethered in dry dusty yards but Yannis is a world apart, If you love horses you will love Yanni. His horses are literally gleaming, he is one of the most caring,passionate horse man ever and to have the chance to ride a beautiful horse in such beautiful surroundings was the highlight of my week in Alkyanas. I rode Nikos a 14ish hand chesnut gelding. Yanni will choose a horse to suit your ability and cantering through the olive groves was exhillarating . 7th June 2014 price was 20 Euro per hour
