Arion          Stables
Riding

For advanced riders, we offer guided horseback adventures. You should arrive half an hour before the Abritt at our stables to say hello to "your" horse and make it ready for riding. All our rides are held individually, we dont mix  riders which dont know each other together.

For less experienced riders, we offer individual hacks. Pace and level of difficulty will depend on the riding skills of the rider.


In the summer we can only ride very early morning or later in the evening to the beach, galloping on the beach is not always possible for safety reasons,  many people walk along the beach (we have to look after the walking people), and many holes and castles are in the sand where the horses could fall or get hurt.

Our absolute highlight is the Analipsi beach and  Aposelemi Tour:

Enjoy the unique views and stunning landscape.
From our stable it goes down to Analipsi, from there along the beach until before Gouves where the river Aposelemi is running into the sea. Always  upwards along the river path it goes until the beginning of the Aposelemi gorge, there we will climb uphill along a narrow trail to Agriana, a small Cretan village with a few inhabitants. From there it goes back to our stables


 
Equipment: We have very good and modern English saddles but also convenient and good Western saddles. For security reasons, we ride only with helmet , which we will give to you (free of charge). You receive from us upon request safty vests.
Clothing: We recommend comfortable clothing, long pants and sturdy shoes.

Also, full moon and sunset rides can be booked through us.

We offer transfers from your accommodation to our stables and back (on request).
