There are many equestrian centres south of the lake in the hilly Brianza area between Como and Lecco and in the plain towards Milan.
Some are just riding schools but many of them also take people out on excursions like for example into the beautiful Parco Pineta and Parco della Lura.
There are also some in the valleys such as the Intelvi Vally and the Val Menaggio where you can explore the nature reserve of Lago di Piano. Also close to the nature reserve Pian di Spagna at the top of the lake there are a few riding centres. Below you will find a listing.
