Some Details About Us
How We Started
Riding international was established by Greg Voglis in 1991 in the United States where he lived and trained horses and riders of all levels of show jumping.
Greg graduated in 1981 from the International School of Brussels. He then moved to the United Kingdom where he studied Equine Business Management and became a British Horse Society Certified trainer.
A few years later he moved to Costa Rica to manage Club Hippico la Carana where he became Chef d’Equipe of the National Team for two years.
He went on to the United States where his parents lived and opened Riding International Inc. He produced a large number of show jumping horses which went on to jump to Grand Prix level.
Being from Greece in 1999 the Voglis family moved back to Athens.
Greg worked for the Hellenic Riding Club as head trainer. Specializing in show jumping, for 20 years he trained riders of all ages to National and International level. He also excelled as a trainer of young horses. Some of these have competed to the highest level of the sport. In 2016 he became Champion of Greece. Greg has also been a member of the Greek National Team for many years.
After 35 years of experience, he decided to reopen Riding International. He has recently purchased land outside of the city of Thessaloniki and is on the process of building a horse farm. On this farm he will breed and train sport horses. He is also a consultant as well as importer of quality show jumping and dressage horses for all levels of riders.
The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and fredoom.
