Beautiful walk through vineyards, olive groves and woods in the San Gimignano area. Donna and Romantica (our mares) are very docile. This excursion is also suitable for people like me who have never been on horseback before. Very polite and friendly staff. You can breathe Tuscany in all respects. Recommended

Nice reception by the riding estate owner and competent guidance by the riding guide he took away all fear of the horse from my wife

5 September 2020

The farm and location was absolutely beautiful. The tour was confirm with just my partner and myself. The instructor didn’t speak much English even though it was stated an English speaking instructor. The horse I was given to ride was very naughty (not sure if this was just a once off behaviour) it kept stopping to eat grass and doing what it liked until it ended up just bucking until I fell off, very scary and all within 5 minutes of the tour starting. Would not recommend for anyone who has little experience with horses.
