Toscana Equitazione

A federal riding school affiliated with F.I.S.E. (Italian Equestrian Sports Federation), where man and horse can find an ancient balance based on respect and non-verbal ability to communicate equestrian techniques. The equestrian center is immersed in the valley of the river, Pesa, amongst vineyards and olive groves and has been active for over 20 years.

The center hosts a riding school with courses for adults and children from four years old and organizes Dressage courses and courses for Show Jumping competitions. Riding courses aim to train riders to be prepared both in the "on the ground" and technically "in the saddle" work, thanks to the staff of federal instructors and to the horses.

Professionalism and experience will make guests aware of the commitment and sacrifice that such a deep passion involves. Someone who has never approached a horse will be educated in gaining the necessary trust and determination and someone who has not ridden in recent years will be assisted in regaining physical ability and tone.

The team of instructors has experience and a federal training path of over 20 years and is formally qualified to increase the preparation and skills of the guests in the maximum possible security. Respecting each person's personal aspirations, develop together a suitable program to reach any goal with determination and fun, obviously, with the help of the horses, selected and versatile friends that are well cared for and well worked.
