We spent a week riding, relaxing and eating at La Fiaba on their Seven Night (full board) Horse Trek Tuscany experience. The horses were all well cared for and Sharon was great at matching our horses with us. My husband Colin is not an experienced rider but Sharon matched him with an Irish Cob named Looby. Looby was safe but... More

As a horse owner, I am always nervous to go on a trial ride and find ill-kept horses that are out of control and clearly not well taken care of. That was certainly not the case here. Sharon cares a great deal about her horses, and while the stable is very modest in appearance, it would be hard to find... More

If you love horses and appreciate their individual personalities and gifts, La Fiaba is the place to go for a lovely ride in the Tuscan Hills. Sharon matches horse and rider with thoughtful care to enable an enjoyable short-term relationship for both. I appreciated the chance to groom the fellow who would carry me for the next 3 hours. The... More

It's easy to drive by the stable if you don't have good directions but once you are there, it is worth it. Sharon matches riders up with horses suitable for them. It is a great way to see the Tuscan countryside. Well worth it. It is a good idea to contact them ahead of time as the could be fully... More

My teenage son and I spent three days here in August 2014, to do 3hr rides each day, and enjoyed every single minute. Sharon was an outstanding hostess and leader. On our first day, and after introducing us to our horses, we had a quick lesson in the school to get used to them before we went off across amazing... More
