FOR NEW BEGINNERS - 1/2 DAY - The Zen Ride

For you who love horses and always wanted to try it, don't miss this opportunity to go for a ride here in Crete. Mrs Kirsty and her professional Team will take you on the green trail thru olive groves and its beautiful nature, of course with very well trained and well looked after horses.

 Details of your trip

The Horse Ranch is situated in Kavros, approx 30 - 40 min ride from Chania and Platanias area.  After an introduction with our professional trainers, we start the riding on  dirt  roads surrounded with nature and stunning views. For sure some Cretan friends will meet up at the road...the sheeps! This is a tour for new beginners and is absolutely a perfect place to get into horse-riding. This is an excellent choice for people who like to relax on horses whilst enjoying the beautiful mountain and sea views. Although this ride is also available in the morning, the evening version offers a breathtaking sun setting.

All horses are gentle, forward and well-looked after. Of course they appreciate an apple, carrot or a slice of bread as a reward!
