Italy is a land rich in various natural landscapes, from glimmering lakes and seas to rugged mountains and wide expanses of farmland. Horseback riding in Italy is the perfect way to discover the country. Basked in wine and romance and sun, it is easy to be seduced by Italy’s ancient and medieval history, cuisine, culture, and atmosphere. Horseback riding allows visitors the opportunity to soak up the unspoiled countryside and enjoy the relaxed, sophisticated Italian lifestyle.
Italian Horses, and History
Italians have paved the way for equestrian evolution since ancient times. In the Roman era, horses were used to transport goods and people, and were used for chariot racing. People even used them in Rome before the city was founded over 2770 years ago.
In the ruins of Pompeii, the grooves of wagon wheels in the cobble-stone roads are visible today, evidence of the daily use of these mighty animals. It is no wonder the deeply rooted relationship with horses still stands today.
Horse Tours Club
Horse Tours Club offers multi-day horseback riding tours in Italy from verified organizers. Visitors can choose from the regions of Tuscany, Sicily, and other regions.
Quiet and still, the Tuscan countryside is famed for its extensive farmland, abandoned medieval castles, wine, and culinary delights. Our horse riding tours take riders through the Tuscan region of Maremma. This is one of the least populated areas of Italy, but the most famous for horses, making it ideal for riding trails.
The Maremma region is 700 meters above sea level, allowing the right temperate and slight breeze, which is perfect for riding. It’s an ideal location even in summer when other parts of the country are far hotter. With options for the length of tours, our trails will take guests through meadows and woodland, and you will experience Romanesque ruins, medieval castles and villages, and farms.
We also offer tours out of the Castle of Santa Cristina, which is nestled between Lazio, Umbria, and Tuscany, north of Lake Bolsena. Other tours we offer take riders through the Chianti hills, and the Arno valley.
Our Tuscan riding tours cater to all skill levels, and our flexible trail options are the perfect way to get a taste of Tuscany during your travels in Europe.
