  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We follow a lifestyle based on self-sufficiency. We treat nature and creatures with love and we only get from it that we need.
    In the training of our horses, we try to cultivate their natural potential without oppression.We breed and train only horses from Greek breeds.

    Finally, I think that because our farm is 100 years old, we are also deeply religious Orthodox Christians. And because traditionally our tradition is accompanied by our religion, I hope you are interested in our way of life.
