Italy - Castellare di Tonda

Heart of Tuscany

Received on 20 June 2018

Posted by: SML who has been on 7 In The Saddle rides. "Wonderful relaxed riding" The guides had the information from In The Saddle on experience, preference for horses etc. but had a brief chat with us before finalising horse allocation. The lesson/briefing before the first ride also made sure everyone understood how they expect their horses to be ridden. My novice husband rode a lovely uncomplicated mare and his confidence grew as the week went on. I rode a horse that on paper was everything I hate, but we built up a great relationship and I loved her little quirks. I also appreciated the guide, Kirsten checking I was ok each day and didn't want to swop horses. The pace was steady as expected and to meet my husbands needs, we still trotted and cantered on every ride though. One the day when the trails were too wet to go out we had a very informative lesson in the arena adding a new dimension to our riding. The instructor Aleysha coped well with our vastly different abilities and we both came out of the lesson having learnt and achieved something. Tack on our horses was in excellent condition, no concerns there. We rode for 2 hours every morning leaving the rest of the day for sight seeing, a car is a must if you are on the relaxed itinerary.

Italy - Castellare di Tonda

Medieval Tuscany

Received on 20 June 2018

"A most enjoyable week trail riding in Tuscany. V" Beautiful scenic riding which was top of the list for us. Our guide, Marco, was very good. He was clear with his intentions, his instructions and his explanations. The girls at the stables were friendly and helpful and prepared the horses for us. They looked after Andy well and gave him a suitable horse for his level of ability. On a rainy morning we had a lesson with Marco instead of a trail ride, which was good. I would have liked the opportunity to try some reining movements on an experienced Quarter Horse. [ITS note: it is usually possible to request a technical reining lesson during your stay at Castellare di Tonda, subject to extra cost and availability.]

Portugal - Alentejo Trails

Coastal Trail South to North

Received on 18 June 2018

Posted by: neil who has been on 40 In The Saddle rides. "relaxing trail ride" this is a really relaxing trail to suit anyone who enjoys riding. They have horses that will suit those who like a forward going horse to those who want a quiet steady ride and all are well mannered when you are handling them. The countryside you ride through is quiet and picturesque, when we were there in june the whole countryside was carpeted with wild flowers. There is ony one day with a very early start when you go to the beach, on most days breakfast is at 9 and leave after 10, so it feels like a holiday on a horse. The food is really good with more than you can eat, the lunchtime picnic is fresh cooked meat or fish with wine everyday. We enjoyed it so much we have booked to go on the kingdom of the lusitano next year, i highly recomend this ride.
