My Only Regret Is That We Don't Live Closer

Posted by Louise Motum

I visited Il Paretaio, a beautiful horse riding centre in Tuscany, with a friend recently, found it via the internet, read about it booked it and then hoped it lived up to everything I hoped. It wildly exceeded any expectations I had. Il Paretaio is amazing, my friend and I had not ridden for a number of years, Jenny was a fantastic instructor taking time to let us get our confidence back. The scenery is spectacular and the food was amazing, all the staff at Il Paretaio made us feel so welcome and nothing was ever too much trouble. The horses are beautifully trained following classical methods and really taught me a lot. I was a different rider by the end of the week and I can't thank the instructors and horses enough for a truly amazing week. I am recommending Il Paretaio to everyone I know and I think it is the best place for horse riding holidays in Tuscany and my only regret is that we don't live closer.

My best horse riding holidays in Tuscany

Posted by Sharon Azmi

My friend and I have just spent the most magical week ever in a fantastic horse riding holidays centre in Tuscany. We have not ridden for a few years and were a little worries, but everyone was kind, understanding and very patient. The horses were amazing, Jenny was inspiring and this gave us both confidence to ride and even not be nervous! Perhaps the calm of the instructors and the soft way of training make these horses very gentle and always ready to please the rider. I have never seen in this horse riding holidays centre in Tuscany someone fighting with a horse while riding . The facilities were amazing, the food out of this world. We did a pasta making course one day and it just added to the awesome things we did. Every view was a postcard, every horse was kind, they truly follow the classic riding training, and the instructors were out of this world. This place was better than we had imagined and hoped for. AWESOME!
