Chianti Castles and Wine Tasting

5 star rating   7 May 2023

Wendy who has been on 7 In The Saddle rides. Fantastic riding ,horses and locality | The horses are all very well cared for and the stable area is very clean and tidy . All the tack and saddles were in good condition.
The horses are all strong and forward going and there are horses to suit different types of rider . I rode 4 different horses throughout the week and all were a pleasure to ride .
Each day there are lots of opportunities for short and long canters and short and long trots . The area where we rode is stunningly beautiful with rolling hills , typical Tuscan houses , castles and fields of vin yards.
It is a fantastic place to ride and particularly so in May as everywhere is green and there are beautiful flowers in bloom .

Evening meals were wholesome and plentiful . There was also a neverending supply of wine with meals ,mostly from the local vin yards and very good quality .

This was a fabulous holiday in a very beautiful area of Italy . Donatella and Sadio were very good hosts and there staff were fantastic too ,particularly Salome and Lucia .
We were very lucky to have a great group of fellow riders (and one non rider ) on the trip. We didn't stop laughing and chatting the whole week , it was fabulous.
I would wholeheartedly reccommend this ride , one of the best!
