Meet our team and enjoy the ride of the Chianti wine region while learning about the area and hearing interesting facts about Tuscany while enjoying the view of the rolling hills around San Gimignano. Once at the HORSE RIDING SCHOOL, situated in a peaceful area immersed between the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside, you will meet the horses before setting out.
Don't worry if you haven't ridden a horse before, it is a slow walk and the experienced staff will make sure you feel confident before leaving for a ride. We will ride in complete relaxation by lush vineyards, native woods, and olive groves for a collection of BREATHTAKING & UNFORGETTABLE VIEWS for about 1h.
After the ride, enjoy a traditional TUSCAN MEAL & WINE TASTING in a local winery with Antipasti Toscani (bruschetta, pecorino cheese, Tuscan cured meat), some Lasagna with truffle oil, traditional Ribolita bread Soup, and Cantuccini biscuits as dessert. Here you will be able to taste the famous Chianti Classico wine, the local Vernaccia white wine and some Super Tuscans.
Happy and possibly tipsy return back to the starting point where our tour will end.

Great experience, very well rounded with horse back riding, delicious lunch, wine tasting, and tour of the region! Irene was a fantastic tour guide, very friendly, and she made the trip very fun!!
What a MAGNIFICENT experience! Vincenzo was a fabulous guide, the horseback riding was perfect for me as a second time rider, the horses were super gentle and take great direction, and the scenery was WOW. We rode through the vineyards and roads around the vineyard for about 60-90 mins. The inclusive lunch at a vineyard of their choice was beyond my expectations. The vineyard is stunning, food was super delicious, and of course, the wine was plentiful. I would highly highly recommend this to everyone!
This was sooo much fun — a truly one of one experience. Most beautiful views on the horses, and an amazing + generous wine testing with such a delicious lunch. Can’t recommend this enough!!! Also Irene is the best — she felt like an old friend.
