For beginners, advanced riders and simply horse lovers, we offer guided rides in the surrounding area. We also offer picnics and half-day rides, cappuccino rides and prosecco trails, day rides and multi-day trail rides. We organise several power riding weeks and trail rides every year, the first Bivignano trail ride was held in 2011 and was a great success, since then we have many repeat offenders and are constantly looking for new trails and beautiful agriturismi!
Easy Riding Weeks
In the morning we ride through the wonderful Tuscan landscape and enjoy the horse and the view. It is always exciting for our guests to see how our horses can climb. In the afternoon there is free time which can be arranged individually. Many guests use the time for excursions to the Tuscan villages and towns in the area or relax with a book by the pool. In the evening we come together again for an aperitif and dinner and linger over nice conversations. During this week, everyone goes at their own pace of relaxation. We offer simple riding weeks from April to the end of October.
Power Ride Weeks
The unforgettable Power Riding Weeks include daily riding excursions, half-day or day and two-day rides, full board and, above all, lots of fun for people and animals.
If you like to ride a lot, try out individual horses and enjoy full board, the Power Riding Week is just right for you.
Our trail rides are a very special highlight, we and the horses love these adventurous days in the beautiful nature. We stay overnight in pretty agriturismi, dine like God in Italy and get to know the country, the people and especially our Criollos - and become a super team in the process. A trail riding group consists of 5-7 people.
We are on the road for 5 days and 4 nights under expert guidance and above all with incredibly sure-footed and cool horses through the wildly romantic Tuscan and Umbrian landscape. Panini or picnic lunch, depending on the tour even a visit to a restaurant. Every day we ride between 5 and 8 hours - lots of walking - lots of hills. And of course there is always a faster pace...
Yoga Cranio Riding Weeks
Since 2022 we also offer these very special weeks to relax body, mind and senses. Horse riding in the morning, relaxing cranio-sacral therapies during the day, relaxing by the pool or excursions in the surrounding area and then ending the evening with a yoga session, aperitivo & Tuscan dinner together.
New Year's Eve weeks
Tuscan dinners, a 6-course New Year's Eve menu with various wines, New Year's brunch, the traditional cheese fondue on 1 January, an adventurous relay ride with prize-giving, an afternoon of games and a torchlight hike with aperitif. In addition, daily riding (not included) - you can see why we like these weeks so much! Guests normally arrive from 26 December and stay for 1-2 weeks, depending on availability and preferences. However, there is a waiting list as some of the New Year's Eve guests have been regulars for years. Just ask us, we will be happy to inform you about the schedule of these great New Year's Eve weeks.
Children and horses in Bivignano
Of course, we have also been able to count smaller and larger families among our guests, and most of these families even become regular customers. Often there are tears when we say goodbye, and it's not always the children.
It is important to know that our horses are incredibly sure-footed and reliable, but they are not children's ponies. Although we have brought many, mostly adult, beginners on horseback and given them a lot of joy with these noble friends (and we are incredibly proud of this), we unfortunately do not have the infrastructure to teach small or anxious children how to ride.
We ride out daily, adult beginners but also brave children who already have riding experience and can sit on the horse for 1.5-2 hours on their own are welcome to join us. We discuss each person's wishes at the beginning of the week and try to give everyone lots of enjoyment. However, there are only two of us at the farm and, well, unfortunately we can't do magic either. Although... we have already been able to conjure up beaming smiles on everyone's faces, or was it probably our four-legged friends?
Just ask and we will be happy to inform you about our possibilities! Of course we also offer longer rides, the horses also love these challenges and are happy to take part in these adventures.
