Itinerary for Ride and Relax in Chianti

This week is a combination of horseback riding and free time to visit this beautiful corner of Tuscany. The program includes 10 hours total that can include lessons, trail rides or a combination of both.
Once at the riding center, you will be able to discuss the program you want to take. The program usually takes place from Saturday to Saturday, with Monday being the rest day for our horses.

See some program examples below:

Beginner Program: 10 lessons + 2 hacks of 1hr each
This is for riders who want to see tangible results at the end of the week. The program starts with 2 lessons a day (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) and groups have a maximum of 3 students per group of the same level. The instructor teach with a gradual personalized system that has been tested by years of experience, allowing the student to progress.
Normally after the first 3 days of lessons the students go out for his/her first trail ride and in the following days the program alternates lessons and trail rides.

Intermediate Program: 6 lessons + 3 half-day hacks of approx. 2.5 hours each
For those with riding experience who want to take their riding skills to the next level. 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.

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 experienced trail horses and are used to alternate their work in the riding school with rides in the countryside. For this reason, our horses are not frightened by a wild boar in the wood and can give you the pleasant sensation of enjoying a peaceful trail.

We specialize in working with riders on the flat; but we can also offer some small technical jumping combinations to help with the balance of the horse and the riders.

Things to see around the Riding Center
Non-riding companions are welcome to join this trip. It is best to have a car in order to do some sightseeing while the rest of the group explores on horseback.
You can walk the streets and lanes of medieval Siena, or taste a glass of Chianti at the Brolio Castle, or Brunello at Montalcino, visit the Cistercian abbey of Mont Oliveto, enter into the heart of Chianti through the Volpaia village, or visit the famous cities of Florence, Cortona, San Gimignano or Arezzo. These attractions are all located less than 1 hour drive from our riding centre.
