Castellare di Tonda - Italy

Experience Level

Medieval Tuscany

5 star rating   6 October 2018

Castellare Di Tonda is a beautiful place with some breath taking views. the horses work so hard and give you their vey best, my horse Scout was just the best, he was a pleasure to ride everyday I couldn't have been matched better by Marco. The horses are very well looked after and all cared for, all the tack is excellent. The group was in my opinion too big, on one day we had 11 riders and 3 guides therefore not able to do many canters. Our guides were very good Marco and Alisha were amazing with the group trying to do everything to make the holiday a good, one and one to be remembered. I would recommend this trip to everyone. Franco is so good with the horses they seem to love him and Marco beautiful to watch them, the trust from even the youngest horses was heart warming. The food was delicious, very good choice every evening, the staff in the restaurant second to none. The picnics on the full days had everything you could want, tables, clothes to put on, chairs and so much food, sitting in the open laughing and everyone enjoying themselves. who could ask for more. A holiday to remember, met wonderful new friends. 10 out of 10
[ITS comment: Going forward into 2019 the new maximum group size will be six riders.]
