Nestled amidst the picturesque landscape surrounding Montefalco, the "Balcony of Umbria," lies over 2,000 acres of sprawling vineyards. Our unique trail ride traverses through the undulating hills of this ancient terrain, offering a glimpse into its timeless beauty. Moreover, indulge in the exquisite flavors of wines that have garnered international acclaim.

You have two options to savor this experience: opt for the standalone trail ride, spanning 3 days of riding or join a complete week of equestrian delight, with the remaining days dedicated to riding activities at the base, including trekking and personalized lessons.

Commencing from the serene Fonti del Clitunno, a location steeped in historical allure and mentioned by literary luminaries such as Virgil and Byron, riders will embark on this journey. The trail unfolds with visits to two esteemed wineries, offering insights into the winemaking process and an opportunity to savor their exquisite creations.

I am the English guide, part of the team dedicated to making your riding holiday here in beautiful Umbria an experience to remember. I organise the riding holidays, and accompany guests on many of the rides out into this spectacular and unspoilt corner of central Italy. All the staff here are committed to showing guests the warm hospitality that is traditional in this rural part of Italy, and enabling them to experience some memorable rides, with a spirit of fun, but also a rigorous concern for safety. Our business is a family-owned, most of the family members are themselves highly experienced riders, with a passion for their horses and for the culture and traditions that have remained unchanged here. We have more than 20 years' experience offering holidays on horseback to guests from all over the world, many of whom return. As well as trekking holidays, we have a well equipped manege for showjumping and dressage, with lessons provided by the instructor Andrea.

    I recently stayed at this agriturismo for seven nights and enjoyed daily horseback riding. The riding instruction provided was excellent. The horses are specifically chosen for their respective activities; there are different horses for schooling and jumping, and others for trekking, where they are very sure-footed. All the horses are in excellent condition. The staff members are delightful and very professional, with some speaking English. The accommodation was comfortable, and meals were served at a local restaurant, which offered a good and varied menu. I would strongly recommend this riding venue to anyone looking for a quality equestrian experience.
