“Horse riding at Hidalgo Ranch”

We spent a wonderful morning riding with Sabrina and Allessandro on the lower slopes near Mount Etna. We are an experienced rider and a complete novice rider and Sabrina was able to accommodate such a wide difference in abilities and ensured we both had a fabulous experience. The horses are all in beautiful condition and very well trained. We would highly recommend for both experienced and beginner riders.
