Plakias Horse Riding Center (also known as Alianthos Crete Horse Riding) welcomes you to sunny and beautiful Crete, an island of unique and unforgettable experiences.

Our Services


Plakias Horse Riding Center gives riding lessons for children and adults, beginners as well as more advanced. Our aim is to give our clients a good start with their acquaintance with horses. More advanced riders are guided by the instructor on a level that is suited to their experience.
All lessons are private, so the rider gets the instructors undivided attention.

For our guests that know how to ride, we organize guided trails in the surrounding mountainside of Plakias and on the amazing beaches of Damnoni, Amoudi and Plakias.
All our rides are very picturesque; the scenery with it's beautiful flora and fauna is very enjoyable to take at an easy pace, but also suitable for active riding. Our guests with no riding experience, can enjoy a guided little tour (15 min.) on a donkey or a horse or participate in our riding lessons.

Since 2014, Plakias Horse Riding Center has established an athletic equestrian team, giving advanced riding lessons to athletes in an annual-basis, and participates in equestrian races in Crete and Greece.
