Dont know how Helen PD012 can write a review from the outside, yes Connie does raise her voice when she has to, normally when people are not following her instructions regarding her horses, she has taken 20 years to build up her business, starting with 4 working horses which she has now built upto 16. The stables are well presented being both clean and tidy and functional, the horses are very well cared for ( they are her family and livelihood ) sure footed and steady, ideal for the rocky terrain the treks cover. Riding hats are available and are offered to clients prior to going out, but this is not England, when you land in Kefalonia you leave all the stupid PC behind. As for the lady falling off her horse I cant comment on that, I was'nt there but I do know that Connie goes to great lengths to match her horses to the riders professed ability, she has to believe that you can do what you say you can. She does answer her phone while out on treks, what else is she to do, she's running a business. The treks are tailored to the ability of the riders lasting from 1/2 hour to 3 hours and cover some stunning and beautiful countryside, passing vineyards that are 100's of years old and the ruins of villages destroyed in the 1953 earthquake and vantage points giving breathtaking views of the surrouding countryside and out across the Ionian Sea to Ithaca. No one forced Tryunderthelatch to take part in that particular trek, they only had to explain to Connie what they were looking for and she would have arranged a trek more suited to their requirements, but dont expect to go trotting in the midday sun, it reaches 40 degrees, book for first thing in the morning or in the early evening. Connie also offers ' all in ' riding holidays with accomodation where she lives about 1km down the road, she has 3 double rooms with en suite wet rooms and a shared guest kitchen ( the food is great, the company even better ). the holidays come in two forms, the first is a daily trek ( duration arranged with Connie to suit personal requirements ) or a camping trek, normally 3 - 5 days where you trek out in the mountains to pre-arranged locations, cook a meal around the campfire, sleep out and then move on next morning, either way go with an open mind, accept where you are ( 3 hours by ferry from the mainland ) and you,ll have a good time, meet some nice people and see some stunning countryside from the back of some wonderful horses. A camera is a must. Recommended.
