Florence horse rides for experts


Florence Country Life offers small-group riding adventures in Tuscany for all levels of competence. But as passionate riders, Simona and Marco aim to share their favourite riding trails and hidden taverns in the hills of Florence with expert riders from across the globe.

Into majestic fir woods, through meadows, in the midst of olive groves and with magnificent views over the great vineyards in the Arno Valley and Chianti area: we have selected for you some magnificent trails for horseback rides in the hills of Florence through the gentle Tuscan countryside and away from the crowds and traffic of the city.

These longer horseback rides are fully customizable and can include lunches, dinners or picnics along the trails. Like all our tours, they include private transfers between downtown Florence and our riding center

Available tours range from short horseback strolls to leisurely half-day and rewarding full-day rides, and will take you on a journey of discovery of the Tuscan lifestyle through authentic landscapes at a relaxed pace.
