Paardrijden

Paardrijden in het hart van Toscane

Ontdek Toscane, het groene hart van Italie, op de meest authentieke manier, te paard. Vergezel ons op een rit door het prachtige Toscaanse landschap, door middeleeuwse stadjes, door de glooiende heuvels bij Volterra en Lajatico of misschien wel met een zwempartijtje in de nabijgelegen rivier D’Era.

Of verbeter uw skills samen met onze internationale rij-instructeurs in onze piste van 30 x 60m, terwijl u ook daar kunt genieten van het prachtige landschap rondom onze agriturismo. Ook absolute beginners zijn welkom om bij ons de eerste stappen van het paardrijden te leren.

Alle instructeurs hebben ervaring in het lesgeven op beginnend en gevorderd niveau, in zowel springen als dressuur.   Daarnaast zijn al onze instructeurs ervaren in het begeleiden van buitenritten.  Wij hebben veel liefde en respect voor onze paarden en zijn gemotiveerd om één ieder de technieken van het paardrijden aan te leren en iedere ervaring de moeite waard te maken.

Wij zijn erg trots op onze piste van 30 x 60 m, met een goede onderlaag, uitstekend zand en een gedraineerde bodem.  Daarnaast is de arena voorzien van verlichting, waardoor ook rijden in de avonduren mogelijk is, om zo de intense hitte van de zomerdagen te kunnen omzeilen.

Voor de ervaren ruiters hebben we verschillende buitenritten in de buurt van Volterra of Lajatico. Al onze ritten zijn veilig en bieden een magnifiek zicht op het prachtige Toscaanse landschap. Een onvergetelijke ervaring!

Ook de kleinsten onder ons worden niet vergeten. Vanaf de leeftijd van 4 jaar kunnen kinderen genieten van een korte wandeling in de omgeving van de agriturismo. En vanaf 6 jaar kunt u bij ons terecht voor privélessen, op maat van elk kind, beginner of half-gevorderd.

De instructeurs leren de kinderen hoe een paard te benaderen en te borstelen, alsook de basis van paardrijden, met speciale aandacht voor de relatie tussen mens en paard.

Voor de meer ervaren ruiters hebben we de mogelijkheid om uw skills te verbeteren in onze piste. Onze instructeurs hebben ruime ervaring in lesgeven in zowel dressuur als jumping, en dit zowel op beginners- als meer ervaren niveau.

We dragen er zorg voor dat uw rij-ervaring onvergetelijk wordt.

Hieronder vindt u een lijst van onze prijzen en beschrijving van de ritten.

Our special rides

Tuscan Hill ride

This is a unique occasion to experience nature and the Tuscan countryside on horseback. You will see grape vines, olive trees, wildflowers and cyprus trees on this classic ride....

After a short instruction to our instructors, you will help tack and clean the horse to get to know it better and then set off on this picturesque ride.

Sunrise/Sunset Trail Ride

Another one of our favourite horse rides is the Sunset Ride. We leave as the sun is slowly starting its descent, transforming the sky into a blanket of pinks and purples....

The surrounding Tuscan countryside is transformed into a splendid and magical vision. We return to the horse riding stables with the light of the moon. Those who have already taken both the Sunrise and the Sunset trail rides are hard pushed to say which one is their favourite. Each one has its own special magic. At the end of the ride, we share a glass of wine or drink and a light dinner prepared by our chef in the restaurant.

The cost of this ride is 55 euros, including drink and aperitif.

Lonley tree hill trail

This is a unique trail which passes through a small vineyard, wildflowers and long gravel roads lined with cyprus trees. Toward the end of the ride you will come upon a beautiful hill with a lone tree where more experienced riders can gallop to the top!...

The cost is 45 euros for a 1.5 hour ride.

Tuscan River Trail Ride

The river trail ride is around two hours through the river D’Era. This ride is delightful, refreshing and a truly unique experience. At some points of the river the horses begin to swim which is exhilarating and fun. There are also some great gallops on this ride. The perspective from horseback on this trail ride is magnificent....

We look forward to seeing the look of delight on your face as your horse begins to swim and is completely immersed in water!

Montelopio Park Trail Ride

This trail ride is around two hours and passes through the hills adjacent to our farm and through the characteristic borgo of Montelopio, founded in 1215 and home to the knights of the Templar....

It is a circuitous route where we follow the trails of the park, experiencing both deeply wooded areas and open fields of grazing deer and wild boar. We pass back through Montelopio, where it is possible to stop for a light refreshment at the quaint little bar of this borgo.

The cost of the Montelopio Park Trail Ride is 55 euros.

Teatro del Silenzio Trail Ride

This trail ride is around three hours long and takes us over the rolling hills of Tuscany surrounding Lajatico. We ride up to and inside the theatre built by the architect Andrea Bartalini rendered famous by Andrea Bocelli. Inspired by ancient Greek theatres, this theatre is built of monolithic marble stones on a high hill, surrounded by uninterrupted landscape....

The position of the theatre is dramatic and the approach is astonishing, where one witnesses the harmonious marriage between architecture and landscape. The ride continues through the medieval town of Lajatico, once a very important town during the middle ages, due to its strategic position between Pisa and Florence.

The cost of the Teatro del Silenzio trail ride is 75 euros.

Peccioli trail

The Peccioli Trail is a beautiful ride for more advanced riders which lasts 5 hours and brings you through the beautiful Tuscan hills toward Peccioli and includes a picnic lunch....
