Horse Riding

Our philosophy is that horses are part of the team and great individuals, so you first need to meet at the ground! If you are a complete beginner we will show you the basics of handling and grooming the horse chosen for you. We will also give you basic information about horses in general, their nature, their characters and we will be more than happy to answer all your questions about them. Even for those with experience we believe it is essential to spend some time with your horse first on the ground to know each other as both the rider and the horse will feel more comfortable during the ride. In order to make the experience both fun and safe for you we are choosing your horse for the ride depending on your weight, height and level of experience, so we will need to know these details in advance. We ride English style and the choice of paces is up to the guides judgment and the previous experience of the riders.
