Horseback riding

Horseback riding

San Ottaviano Estate offers a riding school for English riding and horseback riding.  Each client is individually assessed to receive the necessary attention for a safe and enjoyable experience.

During the summer season we teach children and adults how to care for, respect and ride their sport horses.

Activities for beginners

One-hour lesson including horse preparations and the basics of riding in the saddle

Expert activities

Walks of 1 hour, 2 hours, or all day (approx. 4 hours on horseback). Cost of lunch for the all-day ride not included.

1-hour dressage lesson
All riders must wear a helmet (provided by us).


Unfortunately, it is not possible to do activities for children under the age of 8.  We do not offer group walks. By Italian law, children under the age of 14 cannot go out on walks. Reservations in advance are mandatory.
