Treat your children to a horse riding experience they will never forget

Children who learn about horses and horse care grow into happier adults; adults that are considerate and respectful of the planet and its animals. It is for this reason, if for no other, that it is worth choosing a horse riding holiday for your kids here at the Ranch Riding Tuscany riding centre of Belmonte Vacanze Farm Holidays.
Ours is the only farm holiday agritourism in Montaione that can also boast a horse riding centre for children: Giulia, our young talented professional instructor organises horse-riding activities and fun for the little ones all year round. Pony-back riding, fun and birthday parties, English and Western style horse riding lessons.

First 'leg up'

The first “leg up”, which is the first time up in the saddle, is a magical moment for any rider. An experience your children will never forget. They can choose to experience their first leg up either on a horse or a pony. A qualified instructor on foot leads the small 20-minute ride.

This particular experience is reserved for children aged between 3 and 6. Of course if the little one is scared or uncomfortable, the ride will immediately be interrupted. We believe your children and our horses should feel relaxed and have fun to fully enjoy the experience.

The first leg up must be a great and memorable moment for everyone!

And after the ride enjoy our food specialities at our new panoramic restaurant!

First time horse riding lessons for children

At the Ranch Riding Tuscany riding centre your kids can experience their first horse riding lessons. Each lesson lasts 60 minutes and is divided into two moments.

The first 30 minutes are dedicated to the important job of brushing the horse, and to preparing the saddle and riding tack; an essential experience for the children to get comfortable around horses; then leg up into the saddle and enjoy the horse-riding activities.

For children from 6 years old.

Pony Summer Camp

Treat your children to a fun-packed horse riding day or a week-long camp.

3 hours a day of horse related activities and outdoor games.

Pony Camps can be organised in the summer for a minimum of 5 children.

 

 

Today is your birthday? Let's celebrate at the ranch with the horses!

Ponies don’t exist only in fairy tales … ours is the only farm for children in Tuscany in Montaione with a riding school that also welcomes ponies and docile horses for children of all ages, who will immediately make friends with Furia, Creolina and all the our large family of horses.

We will organize a special Pony Party for the children, a real birthday party in close contact with the horses, during which they can happily face the first time on horseback.

And there will be a delicious snack for everyone!

Horse riding activities at the Riding Tuscany Ranch
