Full description

Learn to ride in the enchanting setting of the mountains of Madesimo, in the province of Sondrio.

This 1-hour riding lesson will enable you to learn the basics of riding and familiarise yourself with your horse, all under the watchful eye of an equestrian guide who will follow your every step.

After gaining confidence in the saddle, you will take a short ride in the field to test your skills. It will be a unique thrill!

What we will do

We will meet in Madesimo (SO), at our riding school over 1,700 metres above sea level. As an equestrian guide, I will welcome you to our facility and accompany you to get to know the horse chosen for the lesson.

Once you have put on your helmet and familiarised yourself with the equipment, we will focus on getting you into the saddle. I will show you how to hold a correct body position, which is essential for effective communication with the horse.

Before embarking on a short ride in the field, I will lead you through a series of exercises to improve control of your steed. You will learn how to give commands, stop and start with confidence and precision. All this while getting deeply in tune with the horse and breathing in the fresh mountain air for a deeply rejuvenating experience.

Once you feel comfortable in the saddle, we'll take a tour of the riding arena to put what you've learned into practice.

The lesson will last 1 hour in total.
