Trailriders stables are close to the village of Ano Korakiana, in the north central area of the island. Nestled in the foothills of the Pantokrator mountain range, with its miles of farm tracks, the area is a haven for trekking on horseback. Thousands of olive trees and natural woodland provide ample shade even in the mid-day sun. Trailriders has earned itself an enviable reputation for safety and enjoyment and caters to people from the age of 6 to 60. The 11 horses are in perfect condition. Their quiet natures and good manners make them suitable for the complete beginner but are also spirited enough for the more advanced rider. Trailriders is open all year round and to avoid disappointment, a reservation is essential.
Corfu Riding Centre opened in 2003 in Avlaki and is located on the beautiful peninsular between Kassiopi and St Stefanos. It is the only riding school on the island that was set up with rescued horses. Rides are customised for people of all ages and levels and consist of a guided tour around the peninsular, which is of outstanding natural beauty. The horses, some from Northern Greece and some from the rest of the Balkans, are trained to take you on unforgettable rides along unspoiled pathways from which you will catch glimpses of hidden beaches and a small lake. It is a unique experience. For more experienced riders the ride is a little bit more demanding and takes you to the turquoise-blue sea, where you can ride along the beach as well as up the steep hills of the peninsular, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the view from some splendid locations. On your return you are offered cool refreshment at the stables. Rides are at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily from May to October. There is a choice of a 45 minute ride, a 1 hour 20 minutes ride, a 1 hour 45 minutes special riding tour, a 2 hour 30 minutes special riding tour or, for more adventurous riders, a full day's riding.
