Horse riding

  • Horse Riding in Tuscany

    Tuscany is an area of great beauty, steeped in ancient history with medieval villages, castles, fantastic food and of course Chianti wines. What better way is there to explore this picturesque landscape with its rich wildlife than to hire a horse for a day or perhaps for a few hours if the rest of your party do not ride?

    There are a wide range of riding centres throughout the region all of whom can provide mounts and guides for excursions to suit all levels of ability. Please make sure you have a sturdy pair of shoes to wear and it is a good idea to bring your own hat and gloves if you are used to wearing them, as not all centres have these available for hire. Most of our villas in Tuscany are within easy reach of a horse riding stables.
