Birthday surprise
Oct 2019 • Friends
I had organised this as part of a surprise for my mother's 60th, it was ideal and more than I had hoped for. We both have basic experience of riding, despite owning rescue ponies my mum had lots confidence with the riding part. As soon as we arrived Veronica made us feel at ease. The journey to get the riding school alone was breathtaking and just got better and better on the trek. Our ponies suited our ability and had lovely personalities. We had the best time and would definitely recommend booking a trek with Veronica you will not be disappointed. A very unqiue location, experience and overall relaxing feel of the riding centre.

My husband and I two our two teenage children up for a morning ride. We have no experience riding but had a lovely time just the same. Veronica and her daughter Claudia were kind... and ever so careful with us newbies! Wonderful views, beautiful people... great experience

Magical early evening horse trek
Jun 2019 • Couples
What an amazing experience!
This was easy to book and I emailed Veronica directly who was really helpful.
This place is certainly "off the beaten track" so you need to be prepared for exhilarating journey if travelling in your own car.
It's worth it when you arrive to be greeted by Veronica, stunning scenery and beautiful horses.
We were able to brush our horses and we enjoyed a 1 hour trek as beginners. The views were magnificent and it was magical to trek through beautiful landscape and even eat cherries off the trees along the way.
Be sure to take sensible clothing..I didn't but luckily Veronica was on hand to lend me some long trousers! Would definitely recommend

Exploring the beautiful nature in the outskirts of Perugia
May 2019 • Friends
We had the most wonderful afternoon with Veronica (the owner of the riding center Marana).
The nature is stunning the horses docile and a really pleasure to ride.
We will definitely book another outing before going back home.

Che Pazienza! (Very patient!)
Jan 2019 • Couples
We came to Umbria as a last minute excursion from Parma, where we stay with family. On the drive down to Assisi we were looking for things to do in the region, and happened upon a review for this lovely stable, which offers guided horse tours through the wooded countryside, with amazing views. Everything about the experience was amazing: from the fact that we booked 2 days in advance, to the wonderful Veronica (who is multilingual and guides the tour) and lovely horses they have in the stables, to the incredibly reasonable price, to the views that you see on the tour itself.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, I would like to thank Veronica for being so patient, amazing, and friendly. The day we went to ride was just one of those days when nothing seemed to go right: we had trouble getting out of Assisi, then car trouble en route, AND we forgot to stop at a bank as we had intended to get cash to pay with. As a result, we were 2.5 hours later than we originally had arranged, then at the end opened our wallet only to realize the mistake we had made. Veronica was still super friendly when we got there, still gave us an hour and a half long tour, and trusted us to send her the money later that day. I SAY THIS TO HIGHLIGHT HOW WONDERFUL SHE IS- please don’t take advantage of her kindness: she gives people nothing but her best and deserves nothing but the best in return.

Peace for your senses
Jun 2018
Veronica and her beautiful animals welcomed us into her piece of paradise.
To find her, you drive through the middle of nowhere, off the beaten track, but it was worth it!
The ride was beautiful, in amongst nature, through forests and up and down rolling hills, she speaks many languages and so made us feel at home. We want to go back again if we visit Umbria!!

Wonderful afternoon
Sep 2017 • Couples
Having been sent on a cross country excursion from the sat Nav we arrived 10 mins late . Veronica and her family were so relaxed and welcoming . It's like visiting friends for a ride in the country . Chatty, relaxed and involvement with the horses . This is not your average walk in the country with multiple animals . It is personal, caring and fun . The horses are beautiful and responsive . They are loved and cared for . Lots of dogs and cats too! Gorgeous countryside and breathtaking views . Such a wonderful afternoon ... personal and special . Thank you ..

Very nice horsebackride
Aug 2017 • Couples
We went to Marana on day 9 of our 10 day vacation in Umbria.
After a very nice phonecall with Veronica (the owner) to verify our reservation, we were expected at around 17.30 the next day.

Upon arriving I immediately felt like this would be a nice experience since we could follow her to the field where the horses were at and bring them to the prep area ourselves.
In the prep area we could groom the horses first in preperation of the saddles being put on. This was a nice chance to bond a bit with the horses that were assigned to us.
I very much liked this kind of expercience as opposed to arriving on the location, finding the horses all saddled up and ready to go.

After that we went for a walk that lasted about one hour (not exactly sure seeing as I didn't check my watch) through the lovely Umbrian countryside. The walk was pretty adventurous for beginners seeing as it was a series of (some steep) uphills and downhills.

To conclude I can say that Veronica was a very nice, caring and capable host. The contact with the horses was a lot of fun and the walk itself was very pleasant! I highly recommend visiting Marana! If we are ever in the neighbourhood again, we'll be sure to go for a second visit.

PS: don't let the road leading up to Marana scare you. It's pretty adventurous but perfectly doable with a bid of "good driving". We did it with a rental Fiat 500... :)

Surprisingly serene

A lovely ride and great horses for building confidence. My partner had his first proper trot being a complete beginner and I fell in love with Hovier. Veronica was lovely and we got to spend some time grooming and getting to know the horses too. Truly breathtaking scenery.
