Full description

Is the view of Porto Selvaggio more beautiful or a frisella topped with garden vegetables? We don't feel like answering that.

And you won't have to either, if you choose to participate in our horseback ride: an equestrian guide will take you on a ride through the Porto Selvaggio Natural Park, discovering the ancient masserie in the province of Lecce.

A 1.5-hour ride, to which you can add a tasty aperitif based on local products!

What we will do

I will be waiting for you 15 minutes before the selected time at the meeting point in Nardò (LE). I, your equestrian guide, will be there to welcome you at the stables!

Once all the participants have gathered, you will meet my beloved horses: I will help you get on the saddle with English riding and provide you with the basics of horseback riding so that you can enjoy this experience without any worries.

Then our adventure in the saddle will begin: we will ride into the Porto Selvaggio Natural Park, along abridle path with mixed terrain; we will also ride through a forest! Along the way, we will encounter two of the largest masserias in the province of Lecce: Masseria Torrenova and Masseria Brusca.

After riding about 4/5 km for a1.5-hour riding experience, we will return to the riding school. If you have selected the"walk + aperitif" option, you will find a rich aperitif (included) based on local products, some of which come from Masseria Brusca and the riding school's vegetable garden. The walk only experience will last a total of 2 hours; the walk with aperitif experience will last a total of 3 hours.

The experience is suitable for ages 14 and up; children under 18 do not need to be accompanied by an adult.
