Nikos is the owner, founder and director of the Plakias Horse Riding Center. His first contact with the horse occurred during his early childhood when he met an abandoned horse in the area of Plakias. Nikos started taking care of it and finally "adopted" the horse by taking it under his protection. Then, he acquired a second one to live together with his first horse (horses are known to live in herds). Τhese horses were living in peace in the area of Plakias and enjoying the intense interest and love of the people (not only the locals but also the visitors of the area during the summer). It was very impressive.
Nikos's great love for the horses and the keen interest of the people about them, led him to the decision to establish the Horse Riding Center in Plakias. As a result, both local people and visitors have the oportunity to know this gentle animal, to join into the horseback riding lessons that organized in the Horse Riding Center, and enjoy amazing horse riding trips in the countryside and the beautiful beaches of the area.
