The horseback ride in the countryside provides, for beginners, a 30-minute lesson in the arena to allow the instructor to assess the level of preparation for the walk. Right after, the excursion takes place on a beautiful route of white roads among the rolling hills surrounding Volterra and continues along the Gattero Lake.
Upon arrival at our stables, you will be welcomed by your instructor who will provide you with a safety helmet and basic information about the saddling of the horse and the type of riding. During the evaluation lesson, you will learn how to hold the reins and understand the horse’s behavior outside the arena.
During the lessons, you can interact with our expert instructors (FISE qualification of second level federal instructor), who will guide you safely and tell you, in Italian and English, curiosities and anecdotes about the world of horseback riding. The riding is in English style. For the safety of your family, children under 14 are not allowed to ride outside of the arena.
Let yourself be surprised by the unforgettable landscapes that only the heart of Tuscany can offer!
