Day rides in Crete
Odysseia Stables offers day rides of 4 hours for the experienced horse riders.
In the remote country side of Crete there is plenty of space for horse riding on endless trails.
Every morning we set out on a new track, accompanied by our four legged friend and an experienced guide.
Odysseia Stables is open for everybody who likes to join in only for the horse riding, while spending you holiday in Crete.
Remote Cretan country side
We ride in the remote Cretan country side with secluded hectares of olive groves ribboned with mountain paths, trotting through valleys with Greek villages were time stands stil, ride along the waters of Lake Aposelemis, enjoy the Panoramic views while above our heads glide the majestic Griffon vultures, or canter on the vertile Mochos plateau with vast orchards of figs, pomegranates and grapes.
Hear nothing but the wind, the soft tinkle of the goat bells, and the horse shoes rumbling on the ground.
The day rides are offered the whole year round, with the exception of the months juli and august.
In these warm summer months we offer the 2 hour hacks during the cool hours of the day.
The day rides are for riders who are able to ride on wel behaved horse in walk, trot and canter in open terrain.
The maximum weight for riders to join is 90 kg.
Lunch is not included, so during the 4 hour trips take water, sun cream and a small lunch with you. You can put this in the saddle bags in the front of the saddle together with your camera.
After your ride our Restaurant Velani is open for a refreshing drink or a complete Greek diner of local produce.
Riding helmets and mini chaps are available for free in the stables.
To join the horse riding it is necessary to reserve before.
