Τhe Horse Riding Centre (Dimitris) is based at Issos, behind the stunning Lake Korissionin to the southwest portion of the island.
Taking in some glorious scenery, this ride goes along sandy trails, through sand dunes, with the nature reserve surrounding Lake Korrision on one side and the beaches and sea on the other. This area is well known for its beauty, and also the fact that there are many trees and plants that are indigenous only to this area of Corfu. You can also often see flamingos and other migrating birds on the lake.
We offer 2 levels of riding – our first is aimed at beginners, riding along lovely tracks and trails to the lake, stopping for photographs along the way. This ride is done only in walk, it lasts around 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Our second level has 2 options – for our advanced riders, who can trot and canter, we offer our lake ride, along the lakeside, along different tracks and trails with a good amount of fast work, always stopping for photos. This ride lasts around 1 hour and 30 minutes. The 2nd option is a dreaming riding to the beach, we take our horses right out into the sea, swim alongside them, and once back on the beach, we do some trotting and cantering, after another visit into the sea we take some tracks and trails and have another couple of canters. This ride lasts around 1 hour and 30 minutes also. The beginners’ ride can be done at 9 am or 11 am, and the advanced rides only at 9 am due to the heat later in the morning.
We also offer a sunset ride, the same as our beginners’ ride but leaving the stables at just before 8 pm to catch the glorious sunset over the lake.
Please note we have a weight limit of 75kg for all our riders.
