Zoraïda's Horse-Riding
Kavros - Crete - Greece

Riding Holidays - Georgioupolis area
8 days, 6 days riding - Stationary normal

For whom?

This is the perfect choice for those who want to ride quite a lot during their holidays, but still want to have plenty of free time for relaxing, sightseeing or shopping. There are no fixed dates for this horsey adventure or a minimum of participants required. Riders will be put together with daily riders of an equal riding level.
Even though this is a stationary holiday, the rides really offer lots of variation. The beach rides remain of course a true highlight! With a total of 23 riding hours, this holiday is suitable for good intermediate riders - able to control a horse during walking and trotting in the outdoors - and advanced riders, who will definitely enjoy some lovely gallops!

Riding Program
  • 2 relaxing day trips with lunch included
    The first of these daytrips (6 riding hours + breaks) is a well mixed cocktail of wooded country side, traditional villages and a pleasant escape in ancient times. It will lead us to the evergreen spring-village of Argiroupolis. Lunch for the unsaddled horses is served under the trees and for you... in a tavern near the little waterfalls. Enough time for a stroll in this remarkably green village, well known for its springs, ancient mills, avocados and associated products. We will also visit the Chapel of the Five Virgins, the excavations around the chapel and the 2000 year old Plantain tree.
    Also the second day trip stands guarantee for an unforgettable day (7 riding hours + breaks)! An exciting morning beach ride will lead us to the picturesque village of Georgioupolis. We will be riding through the famous Eucalyptus alley before we will escape between the olive groves, setting our way to the abandoned Monastery of Karidi. Here the horses will rest in the shade while we will enjoy our lunch at a traditional tavern in Vrysses. The peaceful Apokoronas countryside with its moderate up- & down hills offers great views. During July and August there is also a short swimming break in Georgioupolis before enjoying our sunset beach ride back home.

  • 2 beautiful mini-safaris (+/-3 hours)
    One mini-safari is the "Cool Ride": this is an extended beach ride of 10 km combined with swimming with horses.
    Leaving this early in the morning guarantees an almost empty beach to ride on and a very mild sunshine. Perfect riding conditions which we will fully exploit. The ride itself will be on saddled horses, the swimming bareback. As the swimming will take place at the end of the beach ride it will offer a very welcome refreshment for both riders and horses. Experience the unique sensation of floating on a swimming horse! Embrace yourself for a new sensation!!

    The other mini-safari will let us discover the beautiful colours of the Lake of Kournas. Perfect for those who adore riding through the unspoiled Cretan countryside. Mainly over dirt roads and through olive groves, we will ride up towards the village of Kournas. Making our way down to the lake, will give us the opportunity to admire its full beauty from a bird's eye view. The turquoise colours and the surrounding mountains guarantee you an absolutely amazing view. Short drinking-stop at the lake itself.

  • 2 exciting beach ride (+/- 2 hours riding)
    On a long sandy beach intoxicated by the smell of freedom, you will enjoy a dream-like harmony. Who told you, you need wings to fly? You can either go on an early morning ride or enjoy a sun set ride.
