    positive review  Τα τελευταία 5 χρόνια η Σαντορίνη είναι ενας απο τους καλύτερους ποορισμούς μου. Φέτος μια καλή φίλη μου σύστησε το Santo Horse Riding καθώς εχω τρέλα με τα άλογα και την ιππασία..Μπορώ να πω οτι πέρασα τέλεια και ευχαριστώ τα παιδιά(αναβάτες) για την υπέροχη βόλτα καθώς και τις souper συμβουλές που μου έδωσαν... Τέλεια....τέλεια...τέλεια..!
