Proprietor and FEI Level II Coach
Welcome to the new website of George’s Ranch – your complete guide to who we are, what we do and how we can do it for you!
It’s hard to believe, but 20 years have passed since the Ranch first burst onto the Paphos tourist scene, offering laidback hacks to sun-seeking holidaymakers. Today, those hacks remain an important part of our working day, but our days have become a whole lot busier after we began to produce not only happy hackers, but also world class riders.
In hindsight it’s probably no surprise to see how far the Ranch has evolved over the years because horses have never been a business to us, but rather a passion. As a result, a paddock and tie-up area for eight local ponies has developed into an equestrian centre that has become the pride of the island after our riders secured the FEI World Dressage Challenge title for Cyprus last year.
Needless to say, this was a huge occasion for us and we were thrilled to represent Cyprus at such a prestigious event, but competitions are only part of the story – and at George’s Ranch we consider every one of our horses and ponies to be superstars, from our old rescues to our young hopefuls.
Of course, every horse deserves a courteous rider and that is why we take our training seriously. In fact, we take horse and rider safety so seriously we are the only equestrian centre in the region offering one-to-one tuition with internationally-qualified instructors in high-performance sand arenas. We also offer a professional livery service, with tailored packages to suit all clients, and a loan service for those who want the fun without the expense of ownership. Our only stipulation is not that you ride well, but that you ride with care. Every horse is special to us and we have been blessed with clients, friends and visitors who feel exactly the same way.
In order to spread the love, we have put together a host of new events including a monthly toddlers’ group and pony camps in the school holidays. Keep an eye on our ‘events’ section to find out what’s coming up and our weekly blog to discover what’s been going on. And if you have any ideas we would love to hear them. We want you to feel that the George’s Ranch website is your website. Well, as long as you love horses that is. So take a look around, find out what’s going on and then come and visit us.
Don’t forget to bring carrots!
