Horseback riding is one of the most common activities in Crete. The island has a long tradition of using horses in everyday life. Even today, many Cretans own a Cretan horse (georgalidiko), a breed perfectly adapted to the rugged terrains of Crete, and take part in competitions and shows. On the island, there are many riding clubs and associations, while companies offer to ride courses or excursions.
