What you'll do

Our tour is following the local laws,the only one with an horse path legally approved by the National Park of Vesuvius and fully covered by insurance, it will take place in the National park of Vesuvius(500 mts above sea level) however it will not go up to the crater since it's dangerous and ILLEGAL to go by Horses, beware of tours which do it and which obviously are not covered by any insurance!
"The ride is suitable both for beginners and experts - we will be there to help you! You will receive a small training and you'll be guided throughout this exciting excursion. "
Our experience will start with a tour of our Ranch, you'll have the possibility to approach to all the animals we have, then from the horse stables you'll have the opportunity to relate to the horses, get to know them and their different behaviors.
Then we will jump on the horses and have a little training, finally the real fun will begin! We will start our trail which will take us to a beautiful pine forest,after that we will reach a hill where we will be surrounded by the amazing landscape of Sorrento Coast and the huge shadow of Vesuvio.
The ride lasts usually 1 hour and 15 minutes/ 1 hour and 30 m.
For the finale you will enjoy couple of tasting glasses of our vesuvian wines and a little spread of all our local produces!

Since I was a child, I spent my life riding horses.
I'm a very friendly guy, who love to have a chat with people and like to discover different cultures. I love the nature as much I love the horses and I'll be very happy to share my passion with you! I hope I will be able to give you some tips and suggestions about this sport.

Where you'll be

Saddled the horse we will start our trail, which will take us to a beautiful pine forest, from which, thanks to the altitude reached, we will be able to see a breathtaking view of all the Vesuvian cities and the Sorrento coast.
The route will continue downhill, where passing through the vineyards, completely surrounded by nature, we will get back to the estate.

Thank you, Giuseppe and team, for an outstanding experience. I booked this trip for our honeymoon. It did not disappoint. We were picked up at the meeting point and driven to the stable. Giuseppe ensured that we were both comfortable with horses, explained their habits and character to us, and encouraged us to connect with them, before and while we were on their back. We were riding confidently before we knew it, across breathtaking vineyards! It showered a little, but Giuseppe and his team provided waterproof ponchos. It was beautiful, just to be out there, enjoying nature. When we returned to the stable, a table was set up with food and a bottle of wine. We were left to enjoy our food for a while. The attention to detail made this a memorable experience! Thank you Giuseppe and Team!

An absolutely magical experience! I love horses but don’t have much experience with them, but that wasn’t a problem at all. Sofia showed me and my husband how to ride our horses and lead them (haha mainly how to stop them from eating the grape leaves on our path!), and made us feel very comfortable. Sofia was super fun to talk to during the beautiful sunset ride through the vineyards to the base of Vesuvius, and was even more fun during our snacks and wine afterward! I don’t eat meat or cheese and Sofia and her team made me a special meal that was great (including local tomatoes that were SO GOOD). Everything about the experience was perfect! I highly recommend it!!

Giuseppe was a great host, he was super friendly and informative. The whole experience was very chill and felt like a private tour because we were the only participant that afternoon. He took us around and explained how different each horses' personality was and how to approach them. It's not like a typical horse ride because we get to ride them through the vineyards while making sure the geeky horses don't try to snack on them as we go. Overall, it was fantastic! I would recommend if you want a calm day by Pompeii.

Une expérience inoubliable. Sofia était très attentionnée et nous a immergé dans le domaine d’équitation à travers la petite visite dans l’écurie et la balade dans les sentiers. Giueseppe a gentiment accepté de décaler un jour gratuitement pour évite les nuages. Sofia nous a gentiment déposé à côté de notre hébergement puisque le service de bus est fini. Aussi, elle nous a partagé de nombreux adresses et bon plans qui nous ont été très utiles dans la région de Naples. Elle a été très chaleureuse avec moi ce qui m’a permis de me sentir très à l’aise pour cette première fois à cheval. Ne manquez aussi l’apéro dînatoire qu’on vous offre à la fin de la balade avec les produits purement locaux avec vue sur Pompei. Un vrai régal et une expérience qu’on ne peut retrouver ailleurs.
