Itinerary for Ride and Relax in Chianti

This week is a combination of horseback riding (10 hours total) and free time to visit this beautiful corner of Tuscany.
Once at the riding center, you will be able to choose between the following programs.

Beginner Program: 10 lessons + 2 hacks of 1hr each
For those who want to start riding with an intensive course and thus tangible results at the end of the week. The beginner has two lessons a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, with the maximum of three students per group of the same level with horses chosen and prepared with this aim. The instructor starts the beginners with a gradual personalized system that has been tested by years of experience, allowing the student to learn to ride and improve their skills. Normally after the first 3 days of lessons the students go out for the first hack, alternating in the following days with lessons and rides.

Intermediate Program: 6 lessons + 3 half-day hacks of approx. 2.5 hours each
For those who want to take a further course with well trained horses. Often the art of learning to ride can leave large gaps. We believe that we have the power to bridge these gaps, by explaining and making you train with serenity and competence.

Eventing Program: 6 lessons (2 dressage, 2 jumping, and 2 cross-country) + 2 half-day hacks of approx. 2.5 hours each
We work on the flat and can instruct you in jumping up to 1.40m (4'6). We focus on small technical combinations that help with the equilibrium of the horse and the riders.

Trail Ride Program: 6 half-day hacks OR 1 full-day hack with picnic + 2 half-day hacks + 2 lessons
For those who already have experience and want to visit those angles of Tuscany that are only visible on horseback. Thanks to the big network of routes and country roads, we can arrange a variety of routes for the rider to discover the story, culture, and architecture of Chianti while being immersed in nature and far from the noise of the asphalt roads. The routes are always accompanied by a licensed guide. Our horses are professionals of the routes, so we can give you the pleasant sensation of enjoying the route and the pace.
