Lucca Horseriding Ranch

Your visit to Tuscany would not be complete without seeing at least a portion of the beautiful landscape from the back of a horse.


Beginners or experienced riders, children (5+) or adults, we offer unique trail rides leading you through exiting terrain in wine, olive, forest, lake  and mountain country. 


*We have two different riding locations, depending availability and level of riding.


Trail rides can be booked by appointment only, please make a reservation by email or whattsapp only

48-hour notice. We speak English.

Getting to the ranch
You can't get to us without your car. If you have no car: the  Lucca ranch can be reached by taxi and the second ranch by train and taxi. There is no regular public transport service.

Read our ranch rules carefully here below before you book.


  • If you like to bring a bottle of water, put it in a small backpack

  • Maximum weight of riders around 90 kilos

  • All riders must show up 30 minutes prior to the ride for signing disclaimer, its easier to send ID"s on forehand to save time. Then fitting helmets and selecting horses. If you turn up late, for whatever reason, and missed your reserved departure time, we must correct the length of your riding time with the delay

  • Horses will only be reserved for you after payment of the deposit. Upon arrival at the ranch we will collect the final payment. No refund, when no showing up.

  • The guides select the horses and match them to costumers based on size, shape, age and character of the horse. We help you get on the horse selected for you, adjust your stirrups to your legs, check the saddle girth followed by some basic riding instructions

  • At the Lucca Ranch we keep our horses and riders safe in walking speed only over the rough uneven ground, on pavement or going up and down hill. Our rides are gentle along scenic trails throughout Tuscan hills. Experienced riders may ask for special rides with faster pace, but these rides take place only at the second ranch, 45 minutes from Lucca.

  • Since we have often several groups booked on the same day, people arrival late may miss the ride or get a shorter ride. We do not want late arrivals delay the departure for everyone

  • We do not guarantee exclusive private rides. Private rides can be organised on request but will cost an additional 25 euros per person extra 

  • We only accept bookings with a minimum of two riders. Single riders we try to fit in a group or we ask 25 euros extra for the single ride

  • Trail and weather conditions apply. We go riding unless the weather conditions are unsafe, which are usual heavy rain or storm which make the trail unsafe. Only the ranch guides decide if the trekking will be cancelled or interrupted. If riders decide to turn back earlier, for whatever reason, there is no refund. If we have to cancel, the paid deposit will be send back immediately or we try to make a new appointment. 

  • In case riders decide just before the ride or on the spot, for whatever reason, not to ride, there will be no refund

  • No double riding allowed by Italian law. Guides will walk next to the horses of children if needed, whatever the level of riding is of the children 

  • Before riding it's obligated by Italian law to show your ID card (make a photo of you ID on your cell) and sign our disclaimer 

  • Riding equipment: the ranch provides loaner helmets and body protectors for children under 14 years old. (Obligated by Italian law)

  • Dress: Casual, practical. Long pants, jeans, close shoes like sport shoes are recommended. Bring sunscreen

  • Cancellation policy: To ensure we have a successful day of riding, we need to prepare the horses a few hours before the ride. To do this we need to know the exact number of riders. If a rider is unable to attend or a group wish to bring a friend the last moment, please let us know at least 24 hours before the chosen time. For whatever reason a 24/48 hour notice is required to cancel bookings. By 4 rider or more this is 48 hours. After that, no refunds of payments. 

  • we do not allow walk ins, book at least two days ahead only by email or whattsapp. No bookings accepted by phonecalls.

  • no bigger groups in one ride then 10 riders (by Italian law) At the Lucca ranch max 5 riders. At the mountain ranch max 10 riders in one group.
