The tempo of the hack will depend on the riders’ amount of experience and their comfort (I.e. Sitting softly with the movement and feeling safe with the horse). The safety of the terrain and the temperature is also taken into consideration.

You can book hacks between September and June. During the hottest months we prefer staying in the shady riding arena.

A professional guide always accompanies each ride.

Before your first ride with us, you will have at least 40 mins to become familiar with your horse by grooming and walking or riding  with your horse in our riding arena. This will also be an opportunity for you to learn about my riding style and test the reactions of your horse in case of a difficult situation during the hack.
If you don’t feel yet experienced enough for a hack through the mountains, but can sit safely and softly while walking and trotting you can take part on a handleaded horse.

.

If you are already familiar with our horses, we can also arrange longer rides or a moonlight ride.

Moonlight ride through the mountains

Join us for an unforgettable, magical moonlight night ride on our safe horses over the mountain landscape.

This 2,5 hrs experience takes place a few days before the full moon.

During the months between October to May, you can choose to ride with us right  up to the Likodimo mountain entering  the ruined village of Lefka. There we can savour the special atmosphere and the breathtaking view, while eating a typical Greek farmers snack with cheese and olives.

This experience will take 5-6 hrs.
