Castellare di Tonda - Italy

Experience Level

Medieval Tuscany

4 star rating   9 June 2018

The team at the stables are understandably cautious about matching you to the right horse especially if you do not have much western experience. I was perhaps a little under horsed but she was a lovely mare and I felt no need to ask for another. I enjoyed learning new skills, Marco and his team were very kind. The rides out into the beautiful Tuscan countryside were so fabulous. A different ride each day.

Its not a fast ride, there are opportunities to canter but terrain and weather dictates the pace. It does not take anything away from the riding we all had a super time on this trip. The trip was very relaxing, a great blend of riding and resting. You are well fed and watered both at the restaurant and also out on the rides, you really cannot fault the hospitality.
