Riding Week in Tuscany - Stationary program

The loveliest part of Italy.

On some days, Tuscany looks so wonderful that it could have been painted. Cypress trees, vineyards and small romantic farms where there are good quality local specialities.

On this holiday you will be staying amid this wonderful region in a traditional country house and you get to spend the week exploring Tuscany from horseback. Beginners explore the surrounding valleys and hills whilst advanced riders go on extensive rides and on a 3 day ride to the most remote parts of Tuscany.

Itinerary

Arrival to the riding school. On your first ride you get to know the area and your hosts. In the evening there is a short information briefing. Depending on which tour type you choose, you will then have the following program:

For beginners there are lots of things to learn in the first few days about how to behave around horses. For example how to lead a horse and the various different riding styles. But advanced riders will also be in their place because lessons at a riding school are never just theory. You will practice on the riding ground under supervision from a teacher, who will give you tips and exercises to practice. Sometimes there will be demonstrations too.  The view that you get from here is worth the journey itself. You can see for as far as the eye reaches green and gently rolling hills. The vineyards and the typical cypress forests mean that the riding school really is in a wonderful and extremely picturesque location. To ensure that the daily exercises are even more charming, you go for a ride at the end of every unit. Beginners join in with this too, but there is no need to worry: your teacher keeps an eye on everyone and makes sure that everything is under control. The lessons are quite intense and you will make progress fast. Being around horses everyday means that everyone has a great time. In this holiday, you can expect to learn a lot!
