A must for experienced riders and newcomers to the world of horses.
There were two of us riding here.
One complete beginner and one with riding experience.

We were very kindly picked up directly at the hotel and driven to Finikia. The excursion was accompanied in German, English, French and Greek. There were lovely, non-barking dogs there that were happy to be pet. At the beginning we were briefly put on the horse to test our knowledge. We were then each allocated a horse, given a short introduction and then we were ready to go. The horses are well trained and adapted to our riding level. So the ride went off without any problems and was a lot of fun, a bit up the mountains. The view was really beautiful and you could enjoy being together. At the top, the group was split up. Non-riders took a break and the experienced riders were allowed to take a gallop. Super guided excursion and supported by the team. So the ride was great!!!

After the ride we had some really unique and absolutely delicious home cooking. Delicious and accompanied by homemade wine. All the ingredients came directly from the garden and the surrounding area. You could taste it in every bite.

They really looked after people and animals and made sure that everyone was happy. Many thanks for an outstanding and unique evening

Such a lovely place with warm hearted hosts! The farm is lovely, each member of the family take to heart the well being of the horses. The trail ride was just fabulous and with a great view by the olive trees. We had a fantastic time, we highly recommend this place ♥️

This was such a good experience and nicely finished off our holiday. I went with my 16 year old daughter. The guys were so welcoming, very entertaining and we had such a fun time. The meal was delicious and it was nice to experience authentic Greek cuisine. The guys really look after their customers and it was so nice to experience the Greek culture and listen to the history of the place. What really stood out is how much care they take of the animals including the wild cats and dogs that roam the area, stopping off to feed the cats and dogs along the way was also a treat being a cat and dog lover. 10/10 experience highly recommend and we were sad when it was over.

We had a fabulous time. The whole experience from beginning to end was excellent. The family and staff were welcoming, knowledgeable, helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The horses were all clearly well-loved cared for. The horse-riding was brilliant, all abilities were catered for and the views when in the mountains were stunning!

The family are the most welcoming and hospitable people I’ve ever come across. They were so kind, and informed us so much about Crete and fun plans to do.
The horse riding experience through the hills, olive trees and vineyards was also so special. Lovely horses too!

Absolutely wonderful experience! The family/owners are so kind and the most welcoming people I have ever come across. So warm and generous.

They taught us how to ride and keep ourselves and the horses safe as well as making sure we were all hydrated and fed, (little orange snacks on the mountains)! The views were phenomenal and the horses were so calm, enjoying the scenery with us, such a lovely experience.

The food after was delicious, traditional Greek style foods, wine and cool water, ended the meal with very juicy oranges!

Would definitely come back and to Crete and do this again with family. Thank you Gregory, Irene and the stable staff for providing such a great time, really appreciate the kindness and the level of care and effort put into this!

This was a truly breathtaking experience and a true core memory created. I booked the sunrise beach ride experience for my mother and I - galloping along the beach at sunrise had been on our bucket list - and the whole experience superseded our expectations.

Upon booking, the communication was extremely efficient and Irene was able to accommodate us with just a day and 1/2 notice. We were provided with transport from our hotel to the beach with Irene's wonderful mum and upon arriving were greeted by the most beautiful soul Hassan, smiling, full of life, light and abundant energy! Hassan made sure that we were partnered with the horses that were the best match and off we went. He was kind, helpful and did his upmost to ensure that everyone riding was given the best experience possible, whatever level of riding they were at.

We are so grateful for this experience and the loving service we received from Hassan, the horses and the rest of the team. I pray that others are able to enjoy the beauty of this experience. Thank you a million times!

Love and abundant light, Char and Fran

This was a wonderful experience. My friend and I got picked up by the hotel. When we got there we got an instruction before we started the tour. They were very nice and got a good sense of humor. After the quick lesson we did the day tour through the mountains. The view was beautiful. In the middle of the tour we made a stop and they had some oranges and water. We also have gotten the chance to gallop for a bit. This was only if you wanted to. After the stop we went back where an amazing lunch was prepared. They were very welcoming and kind. We had a great time and it was a fun experience.

It was mine and my sister’s first time riding a horse and what a phenomenal experience it was! Irene and her mother were very friendly, ensuring peace of mind on the safety element of the excursion, as we were a little nervous. Hassan and Aqib (the instructors) were incredible! They were friendly and super helpful with the coach horsing ride, photography and kind encouragement with some independent horse riding. Could not recommend this enough! Thank you again, I will cherish these memories forever. ☺️🙏🏽
