Our horses

Most of the time, the horses spend it in the olive groves where they can graze and roam freely enjoying the nature and climate of Zakynthos. Only when the weather conditions are not suitable are they accommodated in the spacious individual stables located in the center’s facilities.

Our group of horses consists of the following:

• Pony for riding lessons and children’s entertainment
• Hiking and pony horses for walks in the surrounding mountains and along the beach for all ages.
• Equestrian learning horses for adults and children from beginner to advanced level.
• Genuine Zakynthian horses for every use
