Horse riding

Farmhouse with horse riding in Tuscany

A horseback ride at sunset along enchanted paths, immersed in the Tuscan hills, among unique landscapes and pristine places, is a memory that you will carry in your heart forever.
Within the Castellare di Tonda, you will find one of the most extensive and well-equipped covered facilities where you can take lessons with reining horses or enjoy long guided walks, both in small groups and individually. Horseback riding activities are available for the whole family and for all levels, from those who are approaching the equestrian world for the first time to experts who want to test themselves in Western riding.

Riding lessons

Our trainer and our multilingual instructors are highly qualified in Western riding styles and will take care of every detail of your booking with the safety of our guests and horses in mind. Here, children are the real stars: for them, we have designed a special program of horse riding lessons in small groups of various levels where they can not only learn to ride but also have an unforgettable experience in contact with nature. Moreover, parents can comfortably watch the lessons from a specially built grandstand.

Making Friends with the Pony

Children from 4 to 6 years old will be able to ride our charming pony that will give them their first thrilling experiences in the saddle. The pony loves carrots and cuddles: kids, we await you to shower our friend with affection!


The Equestrian Centre at Castellare di Tonda is a real jewel in the crown of our estate and is equipped with a stable with over 50 Quarter Horses, Fjords and Argentines. Once a horse enters the stable, it spends its entire life here: when it becomes too old for riding, a well-deserved ‘retirement’ awaits it in the pastures surrounding the estate’s cottages, and you can admire them as they roam freely at sunset.
