Horse Riding in Pelion is no doubt a strong recall of a beloved Greek habit, related to the Centaurs, the mythical creatures (half-men and half-horses) famous for their bravery, wisdom and wide knowledge of herbs and their healing effects.Horses had been for centuriese the only way of transportation until machines showed up.Either through cobbled paths or the forest,the routing is really enchanting.Listen to the peaceful pacing of the horses trotting through small traditional villages, old monasteries and castles. We ride for one hour and a half, covering a distance from Koropi up to Milies village combining magically the mountainous landscape with the sea view.
