DIMITRIS HORSE RIDING opened in the year 2003, in the area called Avlaki, Kassiopi and is the only riding school on the island that was created with rescue horses.
The love for the animals, the care and the right training has given life again to the once unhappy animals, and they are ready to offer you special moments riding in one of the most beautiful areas of Corfu.
Even if you have never ridden before come along for a new experience, come and visit us to see for yourself what is that we offer. You will have the opportunity to meet the animals find out about their individual stories and what they have gone through.
By joining us you also help our effort to save more horses that have been neglected and abandoned around the island, and give them house.
We believe that each one of us can contribute.
