Horseback holiday in Tuscany


Considering a riding holiday in Tuscany? Look no further. Horse riding is a specialty at Castellare di Tonda

Many of our horses are Quarter Horses and Paints, but we also have a selection of Criollo and Fjord horses for trail riding.

Expert riders (English or western) can try the exciting sport of Reining. We have an internationally qualified trainer available for private lessons, and a selection of highly schooled purebred Quarterhorses well trained in the higher school movements of competitive reining.

The equestrian center at Castellare di Tonda is one of the best private riding schools in Tuscany. We have a full sized indoor arena for group riding lessons, or private reining lessons. For beginner lessons we have a covered round pen, and outside we also have a full size outdoor arena. Both a breeding stud and horse training center, our school horses are of a very high standard, and horse and animal lovers will delight in watching our foals and young horses living free in our 20 hectare turnout paddock.

Our horse trekking guides and riding instructors are expertly qualified with E.N.G.E:A (Italian Equine Tourism Federation) and speak fluently English, Italian and German.

If you have always dreamed of a horse riding adventure in Tuscany that will inspire emotions and memories that will last forever; then look no further.
