click to enlargeI have been visiting Zante the past 7 summers in a row and have gone riding at Laganas Riding Centre every time for at least two rides each visit. I must say that it is always the highlight of my holiday . The horses are very well taken care of and the family that run it , Nikos , his wife and children are lovely people. it is very obvious how much they love their horses and how well taken care of they are. Reading the previous negative comments , I must say it is very unfair for the riding stables ( 7 or 8 in total) in Zante . It would be a good idea to state the name of the riding stables that the comments are intended for.

Me and my friend visited Zakynthos last summer and had great time!

One of our most pleasant experiences was riding with "Nana's horses". Beautiful horses, very well treated, very safe environment, great fun, equipped for all ages and experiences! The lady who owns the stables, nana, picked us up (free of charge) and brought us to the stables where the stuff prepared the horses for us. My friend was inexperienced so they chose for us easygoing horses to feel safe with! It was great fun!  

I arranged a long trip ride two days later and we went to the nearby beach where we had the opportunity to see the seaside on horseback!! Amazing!!! 


Excellent horses and very friendly people Nana and her family! I certainly recommend it to all!!!!

nana's horse riding, had a trip today. really bad. poor tired horses. i had booked an advanced tour..

had to wait for almost an hour, it was porely planned.

but i just went with some kids (who are defintely not advanced) to a nearby field!! and had to ride there in circles.. some men walked with the horses of the inexperienced drivers..and run with them.
i really feel bulls**ted, this was no advanced tour, and the horses looked very tired and said.
so be warned don't spent your money here..

is there better horseriding possible in zante? i dont know, but dont go to nana's!!!!!

click to enlarge As a Greek American I was hesitant to have a wedding in Zakynthos (MAY 2004).  However, since my father is from Katastari and my husband from Lagadakia, I didn't have much choice.  I had been to plenty of wedding prior to mine and wasn't very hopeful of having a great time in Zakynthos.  Nana's horse riding excursion made the trip.  Not only was our wedding everything I imagined and then some, Nana had us over the next day, decorated the horse and carriage and took us for AN AWESOME RIDE IN THE CITY!!!!!  Her family welcomed us into their home afterwords for coffee and cake, we even hung out in the stable area for a while and had a few drinks.  I would like to publicly thank her for a great day after the wedding, for her awesome generosity and hospitality.  Now that I have a son and baby on the way, I look forward to visiting Zakynthos again, this time taking the kids for a ride.  My sister is a seasoned rider and thinks the world of Nana's Horses and so do I.  THANK YOU NANA & FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  ME POLLI AGAPI APO: Oikoyennia Xakailis (PSIRIS!)

loved the horsriding with zante horse trekking centre run by nat and yannis.  Had saved for ages to go on this holiday, iam 11 and love horses, and nat took me great rides along the beach and she really helped me gain confidence with this aspect of my riding.  I loved melina the horse i rode most often, but also loved george and his wee cheeky streak.  i cant wait to get back there, it was the one thing i really loved, about zante and the whole family at the stables made my holiday.  if you want to ride go there, its a great wee stable, and the horses are well loved and cared for.  Beth McMahon

Myself and my 14 year old daughter went riding for the second year with Marie at Akrotiri Horse riding farm at the end of August.We had a fantastic mornings ride. I can not recommend the trip highly enough, it is a fantastic way to see the beautifull scenery that Zante has to offer.Marie really looks after her horses well and they obviously enjoy what they do.

 As promised here are a couple of pictures that were taken last year. I didn't take any this year,sorry.A big thank you to Maries' scottish helper, she was a great guide.No doubt, we will come back for another ride if we come to Tsilivi next year.
Thanks again Marie for a memorable morning.
