About Greece

Imagine riding through scenic landscapes, from olive groves and vineyards to mountains and beaches, while enjoying the warm sun and the fresh breeze. If you love nature and horses, a horse riding holiday in Greece might be the perfect choice for you.

On your trip to Greece, you will have the opportunity to explore the rich history and culture of horse riding and visit some of the most beautiful and historic places in the country.

Horse Riding in Greece: A Long Tradition

Horse riding has a long and proud tradition in Greece, dating back to ancient times. The Greeks were among the first to domesticate horses and use them for warfare, transportation, sports, and entertainment.

Some of the most famous figures in Greek mythology and history, such as Achilles and Alexander the Great, were horse lovers. And of course, along with the horse lovers, there are famous horses in Greek mythology like Pegasus, the winged stallion sired by Poseidon.

The Greeks also invented equestrian events in the Olympic Games such as chariot racing and horseback riding. Artistic evidence on ancient pottery suggests that chariot racing dates back to the Mycenean Period, making it one of the oldest Greek sports. Chariot racing was an essential part of the funeral games of aristocrats, and it was later used in the religious festivals of many Greek states.

Today, horse riding is still a popular activity in Greece, both for locals and tourists. There are many horse riding clubs and centers that offer lessons, tours, and excursions for all levels of riders. You can choose from different types of horses, such as Thessalian, Skyrian, or Arabian, and different styles of riding, such as English, Western, or Endurance.

Horse Riding Holidays in Greece: What You’ll See and Do

A horse riding holiday in Greece will allow you to see and do many things in the country that you might not be able to do otherwise. You’ll be able to ride through diverse terrain and ecosystems, such as forests, fields, hills, valleys, rivers, lakes, islands, and coasts.

You will be able to ride along beach trails on the mainland or on one of the many Greek islands, your horse’s hooves splashing in the seawater. Visit the island of Rhodes, where you can see beach resorts, ancient ruins, and the remnants of the Knights of St. John who occupied the island during the Crusades.

Or you’ll be able to visit quaint villages such as Asklipio, which features a Byzantine church and a medieval castle. You can ride to the dam of Laerma, where you can swim, take a canoe out on the lake, or simply relax in a hammock near the water.

On your trip, you may see the Tharri Monastery, built by a Byzantine princess after she was miraculously healed when she came to the area. Here you’ll be able to meet the monks and see 800-year-old olive trees.

Travel to some of the most iconic landmarks, destinations, and attractions in Greece, such as the Acropolis of Athens, the Temple of Poseidon, the Meteora monasteries, the ancient town of Delphi, the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, the Mycenae palace, the Stadium at Olympia, and many more.
