‪Fantastic Trek. Made my holiday!‬
ספט׳ 2020
‪I did the 2.5hr trek over the mountains and Kalamaki beach solo earlier in September 2020. As an experienced rider I was worried the trek would be limited by the ability of other riders but I was wrong! The guide as super chill and let me gallop off up the hills alone & lead the trek across the mountains. 😍 The horse Nana gave me was a stunning forward going boy - he was SO much fun! The horses are well trained and clearly looked after very well. The scenes are just gorgeous. Swimming in the sea was like a postcard. Great to see a mixed ability riding group have such a fab time - there were 5 of us. And Nana even picked me up and dropped me back to my hotel afterwards. She’s great company and a lovely lady. We met her parents and shared Greek snacks together after the ride. Great experience - if you know horses, very recommended !!‬

‪A wonderful experience‬
זוגות • יולי 2020
‪What can I say, it was a fabulous experience from start to finish, Nana kindly picked us up from the hotel and took us to the family run farm, she assessed our riding skills on arrival and as we were both beginners she reassured us about the horses and explained every fully.
Once Nana had kitted us out we set off on a stunning 2 hour track through the mountains and down to a deserted beach, the horses were so well trained and knew exactly were they were going, once down on the beach we rode into the sea where the horses cooled off and it made our experience even more special 🤗
Nana supplied us with water and cakes and made us feel at home at her house
All in all a once in a lifetime experience that we enjoyed so much 🐴😊
Thank you Nana‬

‪Amazing experience‬
יולי 2020
‪My wife and I decided to go horse riding during our vacations in Greece and Zakynthos seemed to be the right place to do so. Our hotel Olea arranged for a ride with Nana and she came to pick us up. Everything went well and even though it was a little scary at the beginning since it was a first time, the guide was very nice and made us feel good and we even go to go in the water for a nice picture. Thanks!‬

‪Very disappointed today at the experience my 3 boys had. My eldest son (16) is an experienced rider so was hoping to be able to have a nice hack through the mountains to the beach. The horses were not very well
schooled and he said it felt like they were trained to follow each other. The attitude of the leader was awful with them stressing my other son (11) out by kicking his horse to move it on! The leader also went on to hit his horse in the face, followed by screaming and shouting at them! They just got dumped in the sea and was never told what they could or couldn’t do so they were unsure on what they were allowed to do.
The route taken was amazing and could have been an amazing memory for my boys. €150 wasted!
Nana herself was amazing, very helpful and gave the boys cake once they finished. Just a pity the leader represented her business like this.
We did look into reviews and thought we had chose the right place, we will never do an activity like this in greece again!‬

‪Terrible experience! Nothing for unexperienced riders!‬
אוג׳ 2019
‪Organization was very well, pick-up worked perfectly but the horse riding trip was a desaster. The group was mixed: 3 experienced, 2 beginners. My daughter is an experienced rider, so no beginner at all. She said that the horses were extremely nervous. In the beginning, the group went along a street. When a truck crossed the group, the horses run away. That happened again and the 2 beginners decided to discontinue the ride as it was too dangerous for them. My daughter continued but it was difficult to control the horses. In addition, the guide was unfriendly and was not waiting for the group.
Based on our experiences, we can not recommend Nana's Horse Riding.‬

‪A lovely hard working, honest family business.
I used to ride many years ago, and my daughter persuaded me to go with her on a two hour hack through the mountains and down to the beach.

It was an amazing experience. There were 5 guests, three Polish people and my daughter and I.
I was given a ‘good’ steady horse as I hadn’t ridden for a while, one of the Polish guests were less confident than me and the guide led her horse.

We mainly walked or trotted along the roads and through the mountains to the beach, where we dismounted and rested for 10 minutes or so.

When we remounted, we rode into the sea (up to our knees!)which was something I never thought I’d do. The stables lent me wellington boots, which initially I was glad of when we went in the sea, but then we went so deep that they filled with water!!

On the return journey, the guide asked if anyone would like to gallop. I said no, but at one point he let his horse race off and all the others followed! I was initially quite scared, but it wasn’t too bad, I just held on!

Nana’s Horses is a great family business. Nana herself was lovely, her horses are great, her house is amazing and the family and people who work at the stables were all very welcoming.

We paid €50 each for 2 hours, and this included transfer from our hotel to the stables and back again. Good value, with a great Greek family feel.

I did really ache for the next few days, though!!!
But I am 51 and haven’t ridden regularly for nearly 40 years!‬

‪Nice but only for brave‬
זוגות • ספט׳ 2019
‪Nana is really lovely, picked us up in the hotel, brought to her farm where I was playing with 3 of her dogs, all lovely. Was offered water & clothes for those who weren't suitable dressed. Had a little chat and we were on our way. The horses are trained and do remeber the 2 hrs tour through mountains and down the beach, therefore you dont really need to guide the horse. Which is plus, horses didnt seem terrified to me from the day to day traffic which was great as I worried a bit. I must say, I would never recommend this to someone who isnt brave as it is scary because you are completely on your own. But I'm definitely going again as I'm one of the braver ones lol. Thanks Nana xx‬

‪Literally just in the car after an amazing 2,5 hour ride out. Nana and staff take so good care of the animals. Her parents are absolutely lovely as well. You feel the love they have for all their animals.

And the views during the ride out were stunning, Hill climbs, riding the beach and even a nice cool down in the water with the horses. If you want to go horseriding Nana’s horses is where you want to be!
