Western Riding in Tuscany - Center Based Star Ride Option


Western Riding in Tuscany - Center Based Star Ride Option
Tuscany Italy

At only half an hour from Florence in the midst of the Tuscany countryside - olives, vines and woods surrounding ancient farms, villas, towers and castles. This riding center offers horse lovers a change to stay in a typical stone farmhouse with Tuscan charm and atmosphere. It is surrounded by green pastures and beautiful olive groves, from which we make our own olive oil.

You will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere at the riding center, our Italian cuisine and most of all of our forward-going and well-schooled horses: many people come again and again. A riding programme will be available to suit your every requirement. It is possible to ride for two hours once or twice a day with the possibility to combine hacking and lesson as you wish. The days' timetable is based around the care of the 35 horses, who have been schooled at the riding center in Western style. Your guide and his horses will lead you through the Tuscan countryside - its varied terrain being suited perfectly to both horses and their riders, providing the best work out for the Western horse and spiritual tonic for the riders.
