La Somma Holidays on Horseback

La Somma offers both centre-based and trail riding holidays, suitable for all levels and abilities. Guests can opt for a mix of trekking and tuition (dressage and/or jumping).


Umbrian Adventure
This centre-based riding week offers a combination of half-day and full-day treks in the beautiful Umbrian countryside. These weeks are suitable for all levels of rider, with groups divided appropriately for faster riding.

Short Breaks
Enjoy an action-packed long weekend of one half-day and two full-day rides. Your weekend will include a free one-hour lesson to help you develop your technique or do some jumping. For a small supplement (2019: €50) you can replace the lesson with an action-packed white water rafting session.

Roman Ruins and the Footsteps of St. Francis
This special week long summer riding itinerary includes a 2-day trail with a night's camping; you will be served a 3 course meal on top of the world! Riders should be reasonably fit but all abilities accepted.

La Somma Trail Ride
On the trail of a Roman Chariot – A ride to Monteleone di Spoleto
This trail ride combines local history and spectacular unspoilt scenery. Guests may do just the trail ride, (4 days riding/3 nights away and 2 nights at La Somma), or they can extend to a full week, spending the final 2 days riding at base (trekking and/or lessons as required).


Show Jumping/Dressage Combo
Combine expert tuition with relaxing rides, exploring the local countryside on horseback.
Lessons are taught by the Centre's main instructor Andrea Bevilacqua, a FISE instructor and regional show jumping champion, and will be tailored to rider ability.



Riding Excursions
La Somma organise a series of riding excursions throughout the year, transporting horses and riders to beaches and mountains for one and two-day trips.


Non-Riders
There are numerous non-rider activities locally, making this suitable for families and mixed groups.

To say it exceeded all expectations is to do it an injustice. We had a wonderful time. Riding good horses and enjoying the wonderful Italian hospitality. For me, the best part was seeing the carpets of the most wonderful wild flowers. We were so well looked after. Agostino (The Italian guide) and Clare (our English guide) made sure everything went according to plan including providing food and drink in the most spectacular picnic stops you could ask for.

Accommodation and food
We had a wonderful vacation at La Somma. The location is beautiful and the operators did everything and more to make us comfortable. Our apartment/room had everything we needed and was cozy and quiet. The horses were well cared for and a pleasure to ride and the lessons and trail rides were well organized and very enjoyable. Augustino and Clare had a great deal of experience and made the rides challenging, safe and rewarding. The food was fantastic and the company was great. We cannot say enough positive things and would gladly go back.
