Greece, Horseback Riding

Horseback Riding

There are many ways to ride a horse, as our specialists well know, with its courses covering anything from jumping obstacles, galloping or a horse style ride to classes for complete beginners. There are more than enough equestrian children centers, being on one of the most beautiful places in Europe Athens, Greece.

Courses for all levels & "à la carte" at our selected clubs. Horse riding courses are offered from beginner to competion.

Courses for adults & teenagers from age 8 and onwards beginners start off with private lessons of ½ an hour each, until the instructor considers them adequately independent.

Then they join the group lessons (5 persons max.). The lessons are always given under the eye and help of a qualified instructor.
Some hours a week, the horses and the facilities are available for riding for the disabled. Volunteer helpers for the horses and riders are very welcome!
