On Tripadvisor: “Superb private honeymoon trek”

We went on the two-hour Strada del Vino trek on 3rd September as part of our honeymoon. Rosi organised a romantic private trek for us, and for €20 more picked us up & dropped us off at the Lucca Tourist Information, which was incredibly convenient. €50 per person was very reasonable - we trekked through vineyards and olive groves with stunning views over Lucca, even eating figs off the trees. Neither of us had any previous horseriding experience, and Laura & Rosi were reassuring and friendly throughout. Laura took scores of photos for us, and Rosi gave us a horseshoe from the ranch for good luck, which we will treasure! We highly recommend this for anyone visiting Lucca. Particularly if you don't have a car, it provides a unique opportunity to experience the rolling hills of Tuscany first hand. Sally Holloway - UK

“Horseback ride through rolling hills of Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 NEW

On tripadvisor: As we are not big wine enthusiasts we opted to spend a day horseback riding through Tuscany instead of visiting a vineyard. Management are fluent in English and the guides are capable of communicating necessary information in English. We set off at 930am and rode through the hills, vineyards and in to the bush. The horses are well trained and a rider does not need much prior experience to enjoy a day trek. We stopped for lunch at a brilliant ristorante which is nestled away back in the trails. Ended back at the ranch around 6pm, overall was an amazing and unforgettable experience with the best views of Tuscany. Highly recommend :)

“Ride horses near Lucca here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 26 July 2013

This is an excellent place to ride horses in Lucca. Even before we arrived, Rosi was a great communicator via email and answered our many questions. When we arrived Rosi and Laura were very welcoming and greeted us with excellent English. They have all the necessary safety equipment and were adept and matching a rider's experience level to just the right horse (beautiful horses by the way). Our family of four with two teens opted for the 1 hour ride, and it including riding on roads and fields. The views of the Lucca area were fantastic. We were especially impressed with how the horses remained calm when walking on the roads and encountering cars and bicycle riders (we rode on a Sunday morning). We would definitely ride with Rosi and Laura again, but for an even longer time!

This is where we as guides have to work!
As you can see it is a really terrible gloomy place.
We just cry when we are riding on the trails and wish we were in a lovely square room with white walls, luminous lights and maybe a boss or two

Actually there is not a day that goes by when we don't thank the Great Spirit for all his favours. We work in a fabulous environment, have fabulous horses and meet the most lovely people!

“Horseback Riding near Lucca, Italy” TRIPADVISOR
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Our American family of three recently spent 4 days in Lucca, Italy, and the highlight by far was a 2-hour trail ride hosted by Rosi, Adriano, and Laura of Lucca Horseriding. The scenery was incredibly beautiful--we traveled through woods, vineyards, quiet back roads and fields, always with the panoramic Tuscan scenery in view.

Rosi and Laura are excellent and expert guides. We have relatively little experience with horseback riding, but it was at the top of our 17-year-old's list of things to do in Tuscany, and we were thrilled by their company. My husband and I have ridden horses a dozen or so times in our lives, but we learned the most and enjoyed ourselves the most by far with this group. Unlike many horseriding outfits in which the horses, overridden on the same trails over and over again, simply follow the horse in front of them, Lucca Horseriding gives riders an opportunity to actually ride and direct the horses. Rosi and Laura chose the route for our ride as we were riding--it was far from a rote experience.

Afterward, Laura's father Franco, friends and ranch hands were kind enough to share their lunch with us on the big tables under the trees. Laura and her father built the ranch by hand over a ten-year period, and Rosi works with them to operate their business.

Rosi is fluent in English, Italian and Dutch (and maybe more?). Because we had arrived in Lucca by train, she and Adriano picked us up in Lucca and transported us to the ranch for a small fee.

We discovered Lucca Horseriding through a recommendation via TripAdvisor. Their website is www.luccahorseriding.com.
