Equitation at Il Sassone, in Tuscany: stables and riding
If you are looking for a place to take your horse on holiday with you to go riding in Tuscany, well you are in the right place! At Il Sassone we have made another of our dreams come true: the stables.
The structure is made up of 6 boxes of 3.5 x 3.5 m, using flax bedding ( Horses do not eat it because it is bitter and therefore it prevents colic caused by ingestion of bedding), each with a private paddock; tack room; 3 grazing paddocks with water troughs and a 20 x 40 m sand riding school.
Here we keep our own Horses and those of our guests. We can look after your horse in full and half livery in one of the stables or if you choose in the field. Your Horse will be treated as a guest of honour and for longer stays, convalescence or rest periods after intense athletic activity we are the ideal choice! We can also agree for your Horse to stay with us on a monthly or fortnightly basis.
During the year we organise a Classical Riding camps for which you can check the calendars published periodically on Facebook
For those who cannot bring their own Horse and want to take riding lessons or go our hacking in the countryside, our Instructors and Guides can give individual lessons or organise hacks in the spectacular, panoramic countryside for both the less and more experienced.
For those who are just curious or interested you can visit the stables and learn about these fantastic and refined Friends at close quarters.
