SUMMARY OF THE TRIP top

I Due Laghi offers a wonderful horse riding holiday in Italy. It’s a lovely country house hotel, situated about an hour north of Rome between the lakes of Bracciano and Martignano. The estate and surrounding countryside offers some great riding and a wealth of history – Etruscan tombs, ancient Roman paved roads, fortified medieval villages and renaissance manor houses.

The riding establishment, situated within the hotel grounds, was the first in Italy to be given the ‘British Horse Society’ approval. The extensive stables house a good selection of horses ranging in size from 14hh ponies to 18hh Irish hunters. There are impressive facilities including two large all-weather arenas, a comprehensive show-jumping arena and a cross-country course and great tuition from their resident BHSAI approved instructor, Maria Gutterridge. The hotel estate itself extends to some 360 acres, so there is plenty of time away from training to ride out and enjoy the beautiful countryside.

In addition to the BHSAI instructor, if you are looking for a more intense training holiday, specifically on show jumping, Pierpaolo Quagliariello (International Show Jumper) is also available for sessions throughout your stay. (Please check his availability when booking as he competes and is abroad at certain times)

During the winter months, you can also join in on their weekly ‘Drag Hunt’, Italian style! They have their own pack of Irish Foxhounds, 12 couples bred from the South County Dublin Harriers and interestingly they are also twinned with this Irish hunt.

The food here is also delicious, authentically Italian, beautifully presented using the freshest, local ingredients. Guests have the option to eat in the restaurant or on the terrace in the summer. In the summer, instead of being served in the restaurant, meals are served in the sunshine on the terrace.

We have travelled the world testing a huge variety of horse riding holidays to make sure we offer you, our client, the best horse riding holiday experience possible.

Our horse riding holidays are thoroughly researched – we consider all the elements that go towards making our horse riding holidays collection the best in the world. We check the quality of the horses, if they are fit for the job, well produced and looked after. We make sure the riding terrain is good going, the countryside is interesting and, for example, on Classic Dressage horse riding holidays, the arenas are in good condition. We make sure the accommodation, whether it’s a five star hotel, a farmhouse or camping, is clean and comfortable, and offers a great night’s sleep. The food is all important too – we take the time to make sure we tell you if it’s cordon bleu, home cooked, or regional and locally sourced – above all it has to be delicious, plentiful and nourishing. Last but not least, we choose the horse riding holidays that have the best hosts, who are friendly, warm and welcoming.

It’s only when all these elements come together that we add a horse riding holiday into our hand-picked collection of horse riding holidays.

Horse Riding Holidays at I Due Laghi are part of the Zara’s Planet collection of Horse Riding Holidays Italy.
