Full description

Horse riding is a wonderful discipline that allows you to be in contact with nature and to get in tune with an extraordinary animal like the horse. Practising it means dedicating your time to an activity that offers one emotion after another. Try it for yourself!

With a 1-hour basic lesson at a beautiful riding school in the heart of the Maremma, you will learn the techniques of English riding. It will be the start of a new passion that will lead you to practise the sport or simply enjoy magnificent rides in the midst of nature.

You will rely on qualified instructors and equestrian guides, you will ride on well-trained and pedigree horses, you will practice not only one hour of physical activity but you will live an all-round experience in a beautiful rural environment.

What we will do

We will meet at a farm in Montieri, in the province of Grosseto. There we will meet the instructors and first visit the farm and the riding school. After familiarising ourselves with the horses, we will engage in a short theoretical lesson, thanks to which we will learn the preliminary concepts for approaching quadrupeds in the best possible way.

We will get to know theequipment and then finally mount the saddle. The techniques taught will be those of English riding, the most composed, elegant style suitable for walking. We will do exercises to maintain correct posture and begin with a simple gait around the perimeter of the riding school fence.

When we gain confidence, we will ride in a field that recreates the conditions of a walk. Those who show particular aptitude can try their hand at the first obstacles and slightly more complex gaits. The lesson lasts 1 hour and is dedicated to beginners, who can later deepen their knowledge.
