This part of Tuscany is known for its landscapes shaped by nature and man, its thousand-year history and the production of some of the most famous Chianti wine in the world. With this experience we want to share these "wonders" by combining them with the ancient and slow rhythm of the journey on horseback.

The places that can be admired are along the Via Francigena, the ancient medieval road, or riding the paths along the vineyards on the Chianti hills with farms with a centuries-old history where Chianti Classico wines are produced, the almost lunar landscapes of the Crete Senesi with the inevitable skyline of the city of Siena.

When you see a horse for the first time you can have two reactions: fear or amazement. I had the second one, I was five years old. I began a journey made of sacrifices, lessons, competitions in various disciplines at various levels, even important ones, in an environment where sporting results at increasingly higher levels count. Then I changed my point of view. Great women and horsemen, famous or not, who fortunately I met, taught me that technique is very useful and you can learn it, training is fundamental with the right times, healthy competition is not negative if it respects a living being cognitive and complex, but it is important to "observe, wait and listen". In that moment everything changed, the sacrifices, the comparisons, the frustrations increased, and then in small steps we reached the goal: doing things "for" the horse and not just "with". This is what I do with horses and this is what I try to convey to my students, and sometimes when the results are slow in coming I always remember a phrase from a great horse man, Ray Hunt: “… believe in your horse and he will believe in you”. In 1999, after long training, I obtained the third level federal instructor license for hippotherapy and equestrian guide and in 2000 I began to deal exclusively with teaching and equestrian tourism and since 2013 I have been doing so here in Tuscany, in Siena, with my legally registered business, organizing various types of equestrian experiences, including horseback riding trips. I am aware that the horse arouses emotions, fascinates, but you must approach it safely and with the awareness of "meeting" a cognitive, intelligent and different living being compared to others, for many reasons. For this reason I do not "rental" horses but propose, with great passion, "tailor-made and quality" activities for guests, with particular attention to safety and fun. With my equestrian experiences I want to share the passion for these splendid animals, for nature, the millenary history and the excellence of this part of Tuscany, combining them with the ancient and slow rhythm of traveling on horseback. Anyone who wants to "take time" and have an equestrian experience in the Tuscan nature is welcome. Nothing and no one is perfect, but what I do I do with great passion!

    Sergio really loves what he does and knows a lot about it. My wife and I didn't spend that much time here but he made sure the activity suited us perfectly. We had a lot of fun and learned a lot. Riding around the ranch was really enjoyable and safe. Grazie.

    Il trekking con Sergio non è solo camminare a cavallo. Oltre alla sua bravura equestre e ai suoi ottimi cavalli, c'è tanto altro: la vita vissuta, la conoscenza del luogo, della storia, della cucina, il tutto accompagnato dalla sua gentilezza e simpatia! Grazie Sergio per le splendide giornate dell'estate!
