Short Horse Riding Holiday in Italy

For those who are uncertain of how much riding they want to do or are on a tighter budget, La Somma has created the light riding package. They offer holidays based on a package of lessons that you can spend as you wish. On this riding holiday, you can spend your days trekking or choose to have lessons in the menage, including dressage and jumping.

The center is a family venture in the best Italian tradition, led by two brothers, Agostino and Giancarlo, and helped by their children, all expert riders, and their wives Giuliana and Clara. All the equestrian staff are highly professional and well qualified, and great attention is paid to safety, as well as ensuring that riding is fun.

The center has a range of sleeping accommodations available, including eight chalets / apartments and bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms and furnished to a high standard in traditional Umbrian style. Some have kitchen areas. All of them look out onto spectacular views of the surrounding woods and mountains and all have central heating in winter. Some have fireplaces.

The stables’ club house is a large, airy room with beams and terracotta floors and magnificent views from the bar area. A huge fireplace provides the perfect spot to enjoy a drink after a long day’s ride.


These holidays can be booked during any of La Somma's set weekly programs, and guests have the option of full or half-board. Your personal program for the trip will depend on what you would like to focus on: trail riding, dressage, or show jumping. It's up to you!


The stables have more than 70 horses, including Anglo-Arabs, sure-footed Maremmanos, and smaller ponies for children. All of them are well-schooled and responsive.


The stables are just a 15-minute drive from Spoleto with its Roman, medieval, and Renaissance treasures and enticing array of shops and restaurants. The area is also an excellent base for walking, cycling, and even rafting. Rome is an easy train journey away, making it perfect for a day trip or as an add-on to your visit.
