As the Tsourakis family were the first on the island to take tourists on a trip with their horses, they are very experienced.

The Beach Swim


For horse lovers this is simply a once in a lifetime experience. To ride and swim with your very own horse. All the horses are so well looked after and loved by this amazing family. A gently walk to the beach gives you time to bind with your horse. Then once at the beach you start the magical part. Swimming with your horse, it really is an experience that I will never ver forget and to use the word breathtaking is not enough. Its was truly magical and I will,never ever forget this. Thank you Laganas horse centre.

Once in a lifetime...amazing., Gareth SW

As an owner of horses and ride daily at home you’d think this wouldn’t be so special – but omg! This was incredible, one of the best experiences of my life!
My partner and I did the 3hr swim with horses beach ride. Mavra picked us up from our hotel and dropped us home, so easy logistics. She’s so lovely – a warming and chirpy character!
They have so much equipment you can use, hats, chaps, boots, jods etc, so if you don’t have anything don’t worry.

Incredible - bucket list stuff!, KayG03

I’d definitely recommend Laganas Horse Riding. We had a 2 hour ride through the forest, sand dunes and along the beach. The horses are well cared for and were very calm. Mavra was incredibly friendly and picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off after. Our guide was also very friendly and experienced, was answering all questions anybody had. We also had a stop for some photos which our guide was taking. Fantastic experience.

Highly recommended, Aggie K
