Incredible experience!
Michele_M, Apr 2023
Absolutely amazing time, our guide was as sweet and patient as we could hope for. Took us on an easy ride to a cool ancient church. The horses were so beautiful 🥰

Hello Michele, great to hear that you had a great time. We (the horses and I) enjoyed the ride too. We could not thank you any more for the review and wish you a good time and more happy times on horseback! Greetings, Caja
Perfect morning ride!

Our guides were so helpful and patient! It was my first time riding a horse, but within an hour I was pretty comfortable on the trail and in the fields where they took us. Beautiful day, and perfect experience! Thank you so much!

Hello Tina, we are pleased to hear that you had a great time! Sunny greetings from Maremma Caja and the team
Beautiful moment with horses
Romain_R, May 2022
It was a beautiful trip with a training session. It is perfect for beginners (it was our first time with horses) and the horses were wonderful and healthy! The path we went on was really natural but be careful to have a jacket because you can touch the trees. I totally recommend this activity!
