There are different ways to practice Horseback riding in the area, starting from a very basic level in the nearbys of the Marshland of Fucecchio Padule, to a more difficult level through the paths between the hills of Valdinievole; easy horseback riding excursions are possible in the Mountains of Pistoia, San Marcello, too. The district of Montecatini Terme & Valdinievole has some places where horseback riding is well organized and provides a real outdoor experience with horses, expecially in the Marshland of Fucecchio Area in the hills of Uzzano and in the hills of Montalbano, that is Larciano, Lamporecchio and Vinci.
In the Marshland of Fucecchio area, very flat and within a natural reserve, a paradise for birdwatchers, there are many options for half day excursions or full day excursions, or even for weekends spent outdoor with the horses: very peculiar experiences including the tent- camp organization. Horseback riding over the hills of Valdinievole, starting from Uzzano, gives many chances to take advantage of beautiful panoramas after riding within the tuscan woods, made by chestnuts and oaks.
The Montalbano area, the sweet hills where even Leonardo da Vinci used to horseback ride when he was young, features a number of spectacular and easy paths, ideal for family travelers or for a first-time experience of this discipline.
