Fantastic experience!
Jul 2021
We went horseback riding for my 25th birthday with 7 people so we left in two groups. It was the most fun experience I've had with horseback riding so far, it was so amazing! The nature around the ranch was so beautiful, we went through the mountains and had the nicest views. The horses and the girls guiding the horses were super sweet. I would recommend this experience for 100%.

Fun and relaxing ride through the Tuscan Countryside
Nov 2019 • Friends
We did the two hour ride, sadly the weather wasn’t so good and we had to cut the ride a little short, but the first hour was nice and sunny. The horses were very calm and relaxed the whole ride, even when it started raining they never tried to rush home, still stayed slow and steady. Our ride guide (her name has slipped my mind!) was so helpful and informative. She was always checking we were comfortable and happy, also stopped to take a few photos of us and the scenery. I’m an experienced rider but feel that Lucca Horse rides would be safe and fun for those with less experience.

Incredible experience
Sep 2019 • Couples
First of all I want to thank everyone at Lucca Riding for giving us the best time and experience.

I looked at the mixed reviews before our ride and I’m disheartened that people think horses are machines, at the end of the day horses are a living animal and they have their own mind. You as a rider should be able to adapt your riding skills to suit the horse.

Anyway we contacted Rosi through WhatsApp requesting a horse ride in the mountains, Rosi responded imminently and offered us a four hour ride in the Tuscany mountains which we accepted straight away. Rosi and Adrian picked us up from Lucca train station and drove us to the ranch.

When we arrived at the ranch the horses were tacked up ready to go so we jumped on and off we went for our adventure in the mountains with our guide - Franco. The views were spectacular, riding through narrow paths, going across untouched fields, it was like being in heaven. It was complete natural beauty. We rode through a small village and the horses were impeccably behaved, at one stage of the ride we came across some motorbikes which the horses didn’t flinch.

Thank you so much for this experience and if I ever return to Lucca I will definitely revisit the ranch.

Amazing Experience
Sep 2019 • Couples
We had the best time on the 4 hour trek across the Tuscan hills! Rosi and Adrian picked us up promptly from Lucca train station full of energy to the take us up to the ranch where we met Franko. Although Franko’s English was not the best, he made every effort to enlighten us as much a possible to the local history, geography and wildlife. After reading other reviews of people stating this experience is “dangerous” etc I simply cannot understand it. Franko can see your level of experience from the moment you sit on his wonderful horses! He will tailor the trek route and speed to how competent you are. Fortunately for us with large amounts of riding experience we were able to head through adventurous narrow and steep paths. Then through the village which I have never done and will never forgot. All the horses were tacked up ready for us and wet weather and protected clothing provided. I want to reinforce that this is an unforgettable experience but be honest with your experience and embrace all the challenges! Horses are individuals who have their own mind and personality! Can’t wait to return for the 2 day trek! Thank you to everyone once again!

Great experience in beautiful setting
Jun 2019 • Family
Laura greeted us and explained how important safety was with our 3 kids. Important! We were all fitted with helmets and shown the basics with the horses. To ensure a safe ride for the five of us, Laura, Sara and Carlo walked with us. The scenery was stunning. We walked up olive groves, a forest and a small town. They told us about the area, trees, native animals and customs. Very engaging and beautiful experience. Would recommend for kids, teens and adults. Thanks Laura!

Horses are well cared for which is very important. Laura our guide was excellent and so much fun! Three of us went and we all have horses back in Canada, our home. Went by villas and wineries. Fun leisurely ride and we would highly recommend it.

A Wonderful Morning.
Dec 2018 • Couples
My daughter and I had a wonderful time on horseback this morning.We took an hour and a half trail ride up into the hills above the ranch.Our guide, Gaia was lovely and made sure everyone was managing well and enjoying themselves no matter what your level of horse riding was. It was a fantastic way of seeing the Tuscan countryside and the horses were just beautiful. This was a great activity to do and a really marvelous way to take in the beautiful countryside outside Lucca.Highly recommend.!!

Nice ladies, short ride on road
Aug 2018 • Family
The ladies leading the horses were nice. The location is beautiful and the horses seem well cared for. The ride was supposed to be 1.5 hours for 45Euro a piece, and they took us for 45 minutes. Also it was just a ride around in the gravel roads mostly in a loop around the ranch. Definitely not what we expected. You will get a bit of beautiful Tuscan views but not exactly what we thought we were getting.

Hi Darya, We’re glad you enjoyed the ride and liked our ranch. You were booked for 1,5 hour starting at 9.30 until 11.00. You were supposed to arrive at the ranch at 9am. You actually arrived at 9.50am almost one hour too late. We have a strict planning in the busy summer months and as written clearly on our website and in your reservation confirmation by e-mail, we explained twice how important it is to arrive on time with the route directions attached, otherwise the riding time will be reduced.

Fun and beautiful views combined
Jul 2018 • Couples
When I read about the trekking online, I thought it would be a fun thing to do with my husband. After some convincing (because of his slight fear of horses) he agreed and I booked the trip.
We were greeted by Laura and after she got our information she introduced us to Sara who would be the tourguide for the day. We were then introduced to the horses and we were told how to mount them and how to hold the reigns.
We took the nature tour and it was beautiful. We really enjoyed the Tuscan landscape and amazing views. Sara our tourguide told us about the landscape and the horses, in English.
The horses were kind and calm, obviously well trained and experienced. They would however sometimes stop to eat the grass, which we thought was rather funny! We always managed to get the horses back on track to continue our journey. Sometimes over rocky roads and steep paths through the forest. The first time was a bit scary but trust in the horses, they know what they are doing.
After the thee hours we came arrived back at the ranch with sore knees and legs. If you’re inexperienced as a rider, be prepared! Luckily, the whole experience is definitly worth it and my husband is completely over his fear of horses!

A wonderful afternoon!
Jun 2018 • Solo
I had such a nice afternoon here, enjoying the rolling hills of Tuscany on horseback!
The hosts were so kind to provide transportation from the train station and then back home. My guide was excellent! The paths we took were serene and beautiful. It was so nice that they spoke English too!
