Horse riding for beginners starts with a ground lesson on managing the reins, then after some exercises in the arena to make sure you control your horse (and not the other way around!) the guide will take you on a hilly ride through rural Tuscany.
Quiet, patient horses; loud but patient instructors and guides; English riding style (not Western).
Riding cap, gloves and safety vests can all be provided free of charge.
Wear long trousers and closed shoes (trainers or boots).
