I was arriving in Argostoli via a cruise ship in November, and worked with Conny via email to organize a transportation and our ride. Conny was very responsive and helpful; she arranged a taxi to meet us at the port, drive us to the stables, and pick us up following our 3-hour ride (to the monastery). The ride itself was... More

On our third trip to Cephalonia, we luckily happened on Bavarian Riding Stables. We had a wonderful long ride on the very scenic high route and also by the sea. Fantastically friendly owner and staff, great cared for happy horses. An experience out of the ordinary. We will come again.

My daughter (the only rider in the family!) organised this visit before we even left home and was thrilled at the prospect of going into the sea on a horse, so it was an unmissable outing. The party that left on the hack was quite small (which was nice) and led by Connie, although she let my daughter lead for... More

This was my second visit and ride out with Connie and Co this year - and it was just as breath-taking this time round. I've said it before and I'll say it again, this stable perfectly kept, very clean, and the horses are beautifully cared for and extremely well treated. I rode in Jamaica, and the horses were unhappy automatons... More

My daughter and I are both experienced riders. We booked a two hour ride in July and were given the most beautiful Haflingers to ride, It was a dream of a ride up into the mountain, which was really lovely, with the flowers and herbs overpowering in their scents and beauty. The ponies themselves were wonderfully footsure and made easy... More

My sons (12 and 7) and I went on a 1 ½ hour ride. I am an experienced rider, my sons are not. However, all 3 of us enjoyed our experience equally, it made my holiday to be able to share it with them both. Cornelia had my younger son on a lead rein, she was brilliant with him and... More

I went on a two hour trek and it was just me and a lovely young lady from South Africa working there for the summer. The horses are beautiful and very well cared for. The views were amazing and for someone who only rides every few years it was a lovely experience.

My daughter and I spent a morning on the longer trek which included a short swim in the sea bareback. A real 'bucket list' fun thing to do, in idyllic surroundings. Our leader - Sandra - was really lovely and friendly, she was chatty and informative, always telling us what to expect. Safety was always her priority. The horses were... More

My daughter of 10 came to Bavarian stables for a few lessons while we were on Kefalonia and I can highly recommend the place. We also did a little ride up the mountains for about an hour and it was magic. Konie, the lady who runs the place, is totally passionate about horses and horseriding, and her business is spotlessly... More

Having seen horses in some countries that are clearly not looked after properly, we were sceptical about these, but a quick preliminary visit set our minds at rest. The horses are clearly well cared for and it was clear that safety and welfare were key considerations for Connie, the German owner. My wife (hadn't ridden since age 13 and my... More
