About us

Welcome at Agriturismo to Centro Ippico della Berardenga

Not  a bit snobbish, but certainly very professional, the Center was recommended by Ian Stark.

Sadio and Donatella personally assist and receive their guests and riders. Since 1992 they have managed the Equestrian Center, affiliated with F.I.S.E. (Italian equestrian sports federation-FEI), as well as the certified organic farm with its turistic facilities. 

They have transformed their passion for animals and nature into a professional activity by creating their Equestrian Centre with its  organic farm and countryside tourist facility in an uncontaminated valley of Chianti,  reserved for you and for the horses.

The Berardenga Riding Centre is firstly a meeting place for  people who share this passion and this respect, but also for those seeking a friendly hospitality – a reality less commercial and more existential.

It’s a place which favors human and animal relationships, where ethical organic farming and sustainability are an integral part of daily life.

Their professionalism stems from their thirty years of experience in the equestrian field, with work experience in Italy and Europe and numerous international licenses , making Donatella a highly qualified teacher and sensitive to the needs of the students.

In reality these are also two people who have put into practice the belief that you can make horses work and at the same time give them a daily life that includes time in the pasture with other horses, respect for the “union” timetable, even if this means refusing customers and being able to say: “In my next life, I would like to be born at the Berardenga Equestrian Center”.

This is a small family run agriturism , one in which the owners and their guests are human beings who believe it’s possible to improve the world and make a difference even through slight gestures. Sometimes not everything is perfect – but remember we are only human.

Dear friends, we’ve made a dream come true.
We have created an environment for horses and riders where both receive our full attention,
a place that humans, animals  can cohabit in harmonywith the Earth. At Chianti Riding ethical and organic sustainability are a part of daily life.
We have realized our dream for working and respecting horses and their intrinsic needs, providing a dignified life, at pasture when possible and a loving home for their later years.
