The 6day trip from Castelbuono to Catania was a great adventure. Our guide Alessandro, his son and Manuela looked after us in fine style. We stayed in agritourist guest houses who all made us so welcome and provided great food. The dramatic views of Etna as we rode round the foothills were amazing.
A really good holiday - even though the weather ranged from sunshine to snow!

Spent a marvellous hour this afternoon riding around the Sicilian countryside with my family being escorted by our wonderful guide Alessandro. My wife and I have ridden many times before but it was our sons first time. They made him feel very comfortable for his first time in the saddle and we all thoroughly enjoyed our time. Next time we will definitely be going for longer .... Possibly the winery excursion

Visited this place with my mum and her husband. They both have experience horse riding but for me this was the first time. Alessandro was very friendly and helped me to feel more confident after my initial nerves. Horse riding here was a great way to see the beauty of the landscape in Catania. We will definitely be coming back here, hopefully for a longer ride next time. Thank you Alessandro!

We spent a lovely afternoon at Zaffarena Etnea. The people there and a lot of patience as we kept moving our booking, But all was handled with minimal fuss. We went as a family and there was horses of all sizes for myself, and right down to a pony for my 5-year old boy. The staff are very patient and they allowed us to familiarise ourselves with the horses first, in the paddock, then taking us for a quick walk in the valley. The place might be a bit difficult to find by car, but if you ask for directions in the area, it's easy.
