Full description

Approach the magical world of horseriding, discover an exciting and fun activity such as horse trekking and get in tune with a special animal that can become your best friend and help you discover the world from a new perspective.

A horseback ride in the Apennines on the border between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany is an excellent idea for taking your first steps in the saddle, spending an hour in close contact with nature and visiting Fiumalbo, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.

You will be accompanied by expert guides who will teach you how to approach the horse in the best possible way and take you for a ride along truly suggestive paths. Are you ready to take up the reins?

What we will do

We will meet at the riding school in Fiumalbo (MO), a municipality at the foot of Mount Cimone, included in the circuit of The Most Beautiful Villages in Italy for its scenic value. We will be about 1,000 metres above sea level, immersed in the green woods and quiet of theTuscan-Emilian Apennines, with its enchanting views.

First of all, we will get to know the guides and the horses, and we will learn how to relate to the animals in the most correct and respectful way, trying to establish a good harmony right from the start. We will learn the basics of proper 'country' riding, i.e. the practice of riding outside the fence, on ancient rural paths and along wooded ridges.

We will not stray too far from the stables, and the route we take will be commensurate with our level and the confidence we show on horseback. In any case, it will be anexperience of nature and tranquillity. The activity lasts a total of 1 hour, including the initial theoretical briefing.

Who it is aimed at

This activity is at an easy level and open to everyone from 14 years of age. It is particularly suitable as a first horse riding experience.
