Discover Tuscany on horseback and ride through olive groves, vineyards and cypress trees on horses personally trained by your host. You have the opportunity to stay in the farmhouse and ride from there, take lessons, or to enjoy one of the riding programmes. These programmes enable you to enjoy other activities as well as riding and immerse yourself in the Tuscan lifestyle.
This professional riding centre has been recommended by Ian Stark in Horse & Hound for the attention paid to pupils here and for the care of the horses. It is also a member of the Federation of Italian Equestrian Sports.

There are four trails (and a stationary programme on request) to enjoy here at our Molise ride.
