Being sure-footed and reliable our horses are perfect for children and adults (up to 85kgs/13 stones), whether beginners or experienced riders.
All of our 6 horses were born and reared in Greece. The native breed, called Dopia, has been used here in farming and for transport since ancient times.
It is very important for me to ensure the best well being for my horses in mind and body, therefore they live in a Paddock-Paradise, outside all year in their most natural environment.
Our oldest horse is Mira who was born in 1991.
She is an Arravani pony and is a gaited horse. She has been with me since I first arrived in Greece. Having had many experiences together we are really very close to each other and I can rely 100% on her.
In pleasant temperatures, she still loves to come on short walks with us, sometimes even light children can ride on her.
Cassandra was born in 1996.
Even though she is our smallest pony, she is the most determint in the herd.
Nonetheless she is gentle and patient with her small riders.
Feisty Dschingis Khan was born in 2000. He is well suited for more experienced riders.
Being Cassandra’s best friend he knows how to impress!
Behind his macho behaviour, he is very sensible and enjoys close contact with the riders.
He also knows when he needs to behave.
Lea, who was born in 2004, instinctively doesn’t trust unknown people. She came to me after having some unfortunate bad experiences. That’s why she usually leads the rides with me.
As soon as she feels safe, she is very sensitive and cooperative.
Moana, born with us in 2010, is Lea’s daughter!
She is very affectionate, loves to be touched and she really enjoys being caressed and returns the love.
She is the darling of lots of children. Being ridden she is a very reliable and willing horse.
We adopted Felix from the Athens Horse Protection Association ESPI in March 2020. Born in 2011, he is our youngest herd member.
He has now settled in well with the herd, curiose to learn new skills and very friendly to visitors. Being trained carefully and with patience, he will certainly be a reliable partner in the riding arena and on the hacks.
