We spent a week riding, relaxing and eating at La Fiaba on their Seven Night (full board) Horse Trek Tuscany experience. The horses were all well cared for and Sharon was great at matching our horses with us. My husband Colin is not an experienced rider but Sharon matched him with an Irish Cob named Looby. Looby was safe but did not lack ability to go when asked. Sharon matched me with Biondina who has so much heart and would do anything that was asked of her. We were able to groom and saddle our horses with help from Sharon if we needed it. It was nice to have some ground time getting to know Looby and Biondina.
The rides were varied including a romantic sunset ride to finish the week, which we both enjoyed immensely. The views over the Tuscan countryside were beautiful. The horses were fit and ready to trot or canter whenever the opportunity arose on all the rides we went on during the week.
La Fiaba is a wonderful place that has enabled horses that are no longer useful as harness racehorses, show jumpers and horses that just needed another chance, a home where they are wanted and loved. We really appreciated the effort Sharon and Lorenzo make to keep this not for profit business going.
Sharon ensures the rides are safe but fun and even gave us a couple of lessons as part of our week of riding. Colin reckons that Sharon is the best instructor he has ever had.
During our stay we were very well fed with lots of Italian food. Lorenzo cooked us some really nice dishes and our accommodation was very comfortable.
We would love to return to La Fiaba and would definitely recommend La Fiaba to anyone who loves horses and would like to experience seeing Tuscany from a different perspective.
Our week at La Fiaba was truly memorable.
