 Horse Riding Trips In Rhodes, Greece

About Rocking Horse Ranch

Rocking Horse Ranch is a horse riding school located a short walk from Gennadi beach in Rhodes, Greece.

It is surrounded by olive trees, a small freshwater creek to the rear of the ranch and a large woodland area that provides their horses with an abundance of shade in their ranch paddocks.

The horses at Rocking Horse Ranch are only on the ranch in the summer working months.

When off duty, the school has 64 acres of land that their horses are able to roam and run free on throughout the winter months.

Background Behind The Business

One of the ranch owners, Katy, came to Greece 16 years ago.

Whilst on the island of Kos, on holiday, Katy encountered a horse in need of rescue. After receiving some support from mainland Greece she was informed of another horse on the island that was also in need of help.

After finding these horses, Katy decided to stay and never quite made it back to the UK after her holiday.

Katy owns Rocking Horse Ranch with her partner Lee and they have been running the ranch for 6 years now.

Get Involved

Our co-founder Jake, contacted Rocking Horse Ranch after finding them on Google whilst on holiday in Rhodes and was inspired by their story and what their business represents.

What better way to experience the stunning landscape and nature Rhodes has to offer than on a horse ride on the beach at sunset!

All rides take place on the local beach and enter the water.

Advanced riders are guided by the instructor that is suited to their experience.

Not a problem, Rocking Horse Ranch also has beginner friendly horses.

All bookings can be made at the ranch via phone, all social media channels and through google.

The criteria is as follows:

You will need to be a good rider, have a good work ethic and speak English well, other languages are an added bonus.

Horse Rescue Programme

Most of the horses at Rocking Horse Ranch are rescue cases that Katy has nursed back to health and trained herself.

Katy is part of a small horse loving community on the island who try to take care of and rescue horses in need of their help.

The Greek islands do not offer much in terms of support for animal rescue, so this can make rescuing these animals a challenging and time consuming task.

On many occasions, these animals have been mistreated and abused by their owners and Katy has taken them away and into her care.

If the rescue horses can be brought back to health and trained to work on the ranch, Katy keeps them to help.

However, if Katy is not in a position to rescue anymore or if the horses cannot be trained for ranch life, Katy will find a suitable home for them.

Today, Katy and Lee continue to actively rescue horses and educate people on the importance of horse care.

We think the team at Rocking Horse ranch are doing an amazing job and if you ever happen to be in Rhodes we hope you pay them a visit!

Genuine reviews from very happy people

Received in quick time. Does exactly what it should do, just got to get the speed right. Any little bits missed I simply let dry out and chain harrow over. Very impressed. Could do with a tractor sized version though! Thank you for an excellent product

Upon receiving the paddock blade, I have been nothing but impressed saving huge amounts of time and keeping the yard to the highest possible standard.
I recommend and congratulate Paddock Blade UK for bringing this amazing tool into Horse management.

Roland Tong

Great bit of kit, works well in our paddocks. Looking forward to riding in all the spare time I’ll have not poo picking! Video in comments of it in action!

Ruth Jacobs

I was so dubious that this would work for me. I have very bumpy rig and furrow fields. I’m pleased to say I was wrong. I had to go over the field a number of times but I have a clear field and a huge pile of droppings.

Can’t wait to use this each week to ensure my fields are kept poo free!

Helen Chester

Excellent purchase Received in quick time! Our fields are not flat and we have had no issues. Very impressed I will never use a wheel barrow again.
Thank you for an excellent product and excellent customer service.

Beth Mclean

BEST PURCHASE EVER !

Received our paddock blade on Friday and honestly couldn’t be more thrilled with it. It’s easy to use, does a fabulous job and really couldn’t recommend it enough! To top it off the entire process was hassle free too.

Rhian Mullis

Top quality item and excellent customer service. Oh and you can do a 2 acre field that hasn’t been done in a month (or two) in under an hour!

Jon Davis

Awesome piece of kit and don’t know how we have gone so long without one.

Victoria Wallace

Paddock blade – one of the best tools ever. Easy to use, easy to tow, makes light work of the fields. Saves tonnes of time, picks up every bit and even levels the field out while it’s going. Highly Highly recommend.
