Riding Weeks

Weekly horse riding holidays

An ideal location for the holidays of the whole family.  The best periods for an equestrian holiday are from April to mid June and from September to mid October, with the average temperatures between 18° and 28°. The spring for the explosion of flower, perfumes and the unrivaled concert that is sung by the birds; the autumn for the warm colors of the woods and of the vineyards and for the aromas and tastes of the grape harvest taking place. “The equestrian center is located in a strategic position with respect to the cultural and architectural attractions of our region”. We offer weeks for:

BEGINNERS: Those who want to learn with an intensive course and tangible results at the end of the week.

ADVANCED: Those who already experience and want visit those corners of Tuscany visible only on horseback.

EXPERTS: Those who want to do a mastering course with well-trained horses.
We lack nothing!

We don’t see ourselves as specialists in dressage, but work on the flat; we don’t propose jumps from 1.40mt. but small technical combinations that help with the equilibrium of the horse and the riders.
The preparation and the satisfaction of our students is our visiting card.
So after a morning of riding 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. None of these are more than an hour from our riding centre.

An alternative is the possible combination of riding + a spa treatment and personalized massage at the nearby Rapolano Spa.

HORSE & RELAX IN TUSCANY

We accept all levels riders, starting from beginners. Maximum weight 85 kg

This week is a combination of equation and free time to do thing for those who want to go riding, but who also have the time available to visit this corner of Tuscany.
As we have said, in fact, the riding centre is found in a strategic position in respect to the cultural and architectural attraction of our region. This proposal is ideal for:

For Beginners who want to start riding with an intensive course and thus tangible results at the end of the week. The beginner who 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.
Normally after the first 3 days of lessons the students go out for the first ride, alternating in the following days with lessons and rides.

For Advanced Knights who already have experience and want to visit those angles of Tuscany that are only visible on horseback. In fact we arrange, thanks to the big network of routes and country roads, a variety of routes for the rider to discover the story, culture and architecture of Chianti, 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, and we as we have said we alternate their work in the riding school with that in the countryside and, that is to say horses that don’t try and eat or can’t be frightened by a wild boar in the wood, we give to you the pleasant sensation of enjoying the route and the pace.

For Expert Knights who want to take a further course with well trained horses.
Often the art of learning to ride is superficial and leaves large gaps. We are presumptuous enough to believe that we have the power to bridge these gaps, by explaining and making you train with serenity and competence.

WINE & HORSE IN CHIANTI

We accept riders of expert and “fit” level. Maximum weight 85 kg

Week of our creation for 30 years, an experience that will immerse you in the Tuscan landscape, in its history and architecture riding our friend horse and always in the saddle we will reach the wineries we have selected, for wine tasting.

The program is enormously successful among Italian and foreign knights because it is a real journey of discovery, emotions that remain for a long time, you are immersed in the atmosphere of the famous phrase of Proust:

”Le véritable voyage de découverte ne consiste pas à chercher de nouveaux paysages, mais à avoir de nouveaux yeux”

This week we give you the opportunity to discover the variety of this territory rich in buildings, vineyards, olive groves and woods.

The rider will have the pleasure of riding well trained horses that occasionally participate in dressage competitions and events, all in a perfect combination of relaxation and riding.

On request for a minimum of 4 people we can establish different dates from those fixed on our calendar.
