Horse riding in Umbria, over the hills between Umbertide and Gubbio

Back to the exploration

Horse riding in Umbria, over the hills between Umbertide and Gubbio

Jump on the saddle of a magnificent horse and enjoy peace and nature on the trail of St Francis

Horse riding in Umbria, through the rolling, verdant hills following the footsteps of St Francis, crossing the hills that separate Umbertide from Gubbio. Riding our handsome, majestic but very docile horses, you will be able to ride across these landscapes, along narrow paths dense with vegetation up to the rounded crests of hills which, in addition to ensuring great peace and serenity, will provide you with truly breath-taking views.

Get on the saddle, get familiar with the horse and become his friend. Start listening to him and let him get in tune with you, then let yourself be carried aloft, almost at a trot, along mule tracks over snaking roots and fallen leaves to boundless clearings.

You will be accompanied on the route by our collaborators. All experienced professionals, they are master horsemen and women who will be able to guide your convoy and give you all the information you need.

All you have to do is choose this option and let yourself be carried away on an adventure of discovery, thrilling sensations and inner peace.
