Lessons and Fees

Run from the Silva Estate in Corfu, our integrated riding club attempts to customize lessons to fit our students' needs.

We offer instruction for beginner and intermediate riders, both with and without disabilities. Our certified trainers teach English style lessons Tuesday through Sunday.

The club is run in conjunction with our breeding program, and many of the Skyrian horses are used both for breeding and in the riding school.
