Horse rides and treks for all ages and levels in one of Greece’s most beautiful environments, Papigo, one of 46 villages in the Zagori region, in the heart of the National Park of Northern Pindos. Enjoy the sunset as it paints the majestic cliff faces a deep sultry red while riding among the forefeet of the spectacular Astraka peak (2,436m). You can also admire the endemic wildlife watching golden eagles and kestrels soaring above and hunting the smaller prey of the area. And on a lucky day you might be able to catch a glimpse of a fox, badger, hare or wild boar or see a brown bear scrambling along the cliff faces.
Having and owning a herd of horses has always been a personal dream of mine and I was finally able to fulfill my dream in the fall of 2005 by opening the company “White Pegasus”. I began by taking couples on short rides and treks around the area in an attempt to better sensitize people to the ecology of the area.
The rides we offer are an attempt for the clients to feel emerged in nature on the back of one of our beautiful horses. To build a relationship with the horse during the ride creating a beautiful memory, moment, in time where one can feel relaxed and enjoy the beauty of nature around them. We are not a racing stable, the mountainous area is not made for the speed demon lovers, though there are areas where we do pick up the pace and canter, lope or gallop. But if it is simply speed you are seeking then these rides are not for you!
We try to keep the group of riders that will go out together small between 1-8 people so that the experience can be more personal and pleasant for everyone. Hopefully each person will leave us with a better understanding of how such an area of raw natural beauty is so special and necessary and with a wonderful experience to describe to others.
