Of Horses

There are references to horses on the island of Kos from as far back as the Roman times. Today you will find them in the plains of the island mostly in the Tigaki-Marmari and the Kardamena areas. A very popular horse race is run every year on St George's name day in the village of Pyli and a number a locals keep horses just to participate in those races (this year -2018- there were 25 participants).
