Detailed description

Horseback riding in Tuscany: On horseback through the unique landscape of the Italian Maremma

If you can look out over the rolling hills to the sea and smell the tranquillity between pine forests and olive groves, you may be sitting in a horse saddle and riding through Tuscany. More precisely through the beautiful Maremma of Central Italy. Long underestimated, the region in the south of Tuscany has developed into a real insider tip for lovers of Italy. Because you will find everything here - the sea in front, mountains in the back and a lot of culture and tradition in the middle, good food, numerous sports activities and a special nature experience. This is exactly what you can expect on a 1.5-hour ride through the Maremma from Sorano.

Between the fields and hills of this region steeped in history, you will ride on horseback along secluded paths and through the natural course of the river Lente. Several times you will cross this beautiful brook with the horses and perhaps feel transported back into a childhood dream full of adventure. During this excursion you will ride on well-trained and well-balanced horses, which are kept in the pasture and in the group. Almost all animals can be ridden in English riding style as well as western style. A small greeting and briefing is obligatory for the tours with the horse. In this way you will get to know many of the animals and their riding instructors better before the ride.

Children from 14 years of age can take part in the riding tour through the Maremma. Even people without riding experience are in trustful hands with the crew. The equestrian farm is not far from the small town of Sorano, surrounded by woods, water and fields and embedded in the archaeological park of the three tuff villages. Here the long and eventful history of the Etruscans is still vivid and palpable. The park includes the rocks of San Rocco and the cemetery of Sovana.

If you are looking for unforgettable experiences and an intensive holiday adventure in the Maremma, you will surely find and be happy while riding in Tuscany.

Horses are my world - here I saw happy animals

The horses were well trained. The crew dealt professionally with animals and people. The secluded bridle paths are so idyllic that I really want to ride here again at the next opportunity...!

Pferde sind meine Welt – hier sah ich zufriedene Tiere

I left the bit of sadness in Tuscany...

Almost a year ago I had to say goodbye to my Betty (Hanoverian mare) due to old age. I haven't sat in a saddle since then. When I found this on sunbonoo, an inner voice said to me: do it...! So I decided to go horseback riding in Tuscany. I have to admit: the first few meters at a trot – and a few tears shed. Thoughts of Betty. You would feel very comfortable here too. And I felt that I could end the grief for her, let go. It was a ride full of mixed emotions. But at the end, after two hours of pure riding pleasure, all I felt was: gratitude and happiness.

Das Stückchen Traurigkeit habe ich in der Toskana gelassen…

Vor knapp einem Jahr musste ich mich von meiner Betty (Hannoveraner-Stute) verabschieden (Altersschwäche). Seither habe ich in keinem Sattel mehr gesessen. Als ich das hier auf sunbonoo gefunden habe, sagte mir eine innere Stimme: Mach das…! So entschloss ich mich zum Ausritt in der Toskana. Ich muss gestehen: die ersten Meter im Trab – und es kullerten ein paar Tränen. Gedanken an Betty. Sie würde sich hier auch sehr wohlfühlen. Und ich spürte, dass ich die Trauer um sie beenden, loslassen kann. Es war ein Ritt voller gemischter Emotionen. Doch am Ende, nach zwei Stunden Reitgenuss pur, spürte ich nur noch: Dankbarkeit und Glück.

The dream of riding in Tuscany

My dream came true. I love horses and I love Tuscany. I know that for non-riders this is difficult or impossible to understand. It's a shame that you can only give 5 stars here...

Der Traum vom Reiten in der Toskana

Mein Traum wurde wahr. Ich liebe Pferde und ich liebe die Toskana. Ich weiß, für Nichtreiter ist das nicht oder nur schwer zu verstehen. Schade, dass man hier nur 5 Sterne geben kann…
