Swimming with the Horses

We are now offering swimming with horses. 

 

All levels are welcome. Join us and experience Corfu from the back of a horse. The tour combines horseback riding through the woodlands, the beach, wading through the water, and swimming with horses! This guided tour with horses lasts about 3,5 hours. 

We start from the stables and go up the hill and through the lovely village Pelekito to find the pristine, secluded sandy beach of the Platytera Monastery. Here the fun begins! You get the chance to go for an inviting swim, with your horse, in the crystal clear water of the Ionian Sea.

During this unique horseback riding experience, you will have a chance to relax and enjoy the views of the Albanian coastline.

 

WHY CHOOSE HORSE RIDING

The safety and comfort of both horse and rider always come first.

The horses are incredibly well-trained rescue horses that are comfortable to ride, enjoy swimming, and are easy to handle.

 

THE HORSES

The horses will always come first at Arena Horseriding because if you care for horses, they care for you. The standards are high; the horses get the best physical and emotional care. 

 

Please be advised:

For your comfort, wear closed-toe shoes and not flip-flops or sandals. Preferably long pants to avoid any injuries from the rubbing of your skin to the saddle.

Bring mosquito repellent and a small rucksack to keep your things in and be able to wear it while riding.

Make sure you bring your swimsuit and towel and, most important, a change of pants since no riding with wet pants is allowed.

The rider's family and friends can follow the ride on foot, but it is challenging (up and down the hill).
