You will be taken to the Sibillini Mountains in the heart of le Marche where you will ride through native woods, rolling hills, rivers, lakes and the foothills of the impressive mountain range to offer you a collection of breathtaking and unforgettable views.
Your riding ability will always be assessed before you are allowed out and the trek will be based on the ability of the riders for that session. Riders are advised to wear suitable clothing and shoes and we always recommend that they should wear riding hats. We try our best to accommodate different nationalities and their styles of riding.

The Le Marche region is a culturally rich area, divided into four provinces by four river valleys in a remote part of Italy. Much of Le Marche is, as yet, undiscovered by the crowds ensuring that the land and villages remain quiet and untouched. Its strategic location makes it a perfect spot for reaching all the most important destinations of central Italy including Florence, Siena, Assisi, Perugia, Urbino, Gubbio, and Ravenna. The Le Marche region lies on the eastern side of central Italy, between the Adriatic Sea and the majestic Apennine Mountains and has enough attractions to keep visitors busy for years. Admire the masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture, hike across uncharted mountains or hunt for the best catch of the day in a Mediterranean fishing port. It is still possible to experience a taste of old-world cuisine and culture in Le Marche, an area still unsullied by mass tourism which makes it a very intriguing place to visit. The Marchigiani, the people of the Le Marche region, are hard working, warm and friendly. Known for producing quality merchandise in textiles and leathers, they have also developed special niches in artisan industries such as high quality handmade paper at Fabriano and musical instruments at Castelfidardo. Olive trees, fresh vegetables and vineyards are plentiful throughout the region also. Many seaside resorts stretch along the extensive of Adriatic coast, making it a relaxing destination for summer vacations.
Surrounded by mountains and natural parks, the town of Ascoli Piceno has been inhabited since pre-Roman times. Legend has it that a woodpecker led prehistoric settlers to the site, thus bringing about the town's foundation. Ascoli Piceno's historic center is rich in churches, palazzi and other important monuments. In particular, the town's central Renaissance square, Piazza del Popolo, is considered one of the most beautiful in Italy. This piazza, which acted as the forum in Roman times, is dominated by the Palazzo dei Capitani del Popolo, which was burned to the ground during a local feud in 1535 and completely rebuilt ten years later. You can also visit Le Marche's second largest art gallery inside the 17th-century Palazzo Comunale situated in Piazza Arringo, or Ascoli's cathedral in the same square.
