Welcome Note

  • Welcome

    This website has been created by all of us, who have a passion for horses, but it also counts on the contribution of all of you, who will hopefully become the new members of the equestrian family.

    Take a tour around our webpage walking through the riding clubs where you can find contact details and information on coaches, athletes and horses.

    Wander around trotting through the latest news, special articles and interviews.

    Gallop freely in our forum, your own space, where we can exchange views and ideas.

    And, after your warm up, come to the vertical, look at our photos and then pass to the oxer to watch videos from training sessions and shows.

    The relationship between the rider and the horse is a very special one. It demands a great deal of preparation, a great deal of time in order for them to form a strong bond before their ultimate effort at the competition; the competition where their dancing sweeps away even the most demanding viewer and their figure takes us on a journey to the much-desired destination...a harmonious ride...

    What is it that makes us long for the next ride? This unique sense of freedom, independence and bonding is definitely one of the reasons...


    Regards

Interviews

  • Anna Papageorgiou “Τhe Horse Virus”
    Anna Papageorgiou “Τhe Horse Virus” Anna Papageorgiou, this month's interviewee, is an Amazon that always stood out both for her passion for horses and for her fighting spirit in the arena. From a young age she won many distinctions with persistence and trust in her abilities. Her numerous awards which culminated in her victory in the Young Riders Championship were not handed out to her but she has deservedly won them, having spent a lot time and effort on horses. She has competed abroad at a level which many would envy and has proven what she is worth since she has managed to succeed even among the European "elite." We must emphasize that she is an integral member of our national team both in the European and Balkan level, and her last participation was at the European Young Riders Competition in Ireland and in the Adult team at the Balkans in Romania, despite her young age. However, Anna is not a one-sided person, since her program is full of activities outside the arena, obligations and responsibilities every day. Through this interview, to which she politely agreed, you will have the opportunity to get to know a little better one of the most successful, but yet sweet creatures, the 'smile' of Greek horse riding. Let's see what she told us...
