Lucia Miccoli from Vienna : ‘Horse Riding in Lake Plastira”

Horse Riding By Plastira Lake,

The scenery at the Lake Plastiras is majestic, with the whole mountain scene, the green valley and the impressive lake making it a serene setting for outdoor adventures.

It was a warm afternoon and myself, with three other members of Travel Bloggers Greece we rode our mares around the lake. The only one who got to ride a stallion named Aris was Eley from Meet Culture.
Marissa of My Greece, My Travels had a horse named Bella and Stefanos got to ride the beautiful Naomi. I was placed in front to lead the rest, on my brown horse called Sandy.

To tell you the truth I did feel a little bit nervous at first since the last time I was on a horse was back in 2008 riding in the Red Sea of Sharlm El Sheikh, Egypt. We had Yiannis and Thanassis accompany us throughout the 30 minute ride. Yiannis was leading the way and my Sandy would follow him willingly, like she knew that he was the boss.

Yiannis had insisted that I take control and let Sandy understand that I was the one controlling the situation. She had to follow my guidance. In order to get Sandy to stop I had to use the magic words “Opa, Sandy!” So after a few minutes I started to relax, the horse needed to feel my confidence that is the secret you must execute when horseback riding.

The animal must feel that you are the leader and you know how to lead the way. Once we finished with our ride and were content with our experience and a collection of photos later, Thanassis made sure to capture our experience and jokingly said that they have great knowledge of all types of camera’s, iPhones and iPads as this is something that most of their guests ask for.
