After breakfast, We will visit Almof Lech, a beautifully appointed stable owned by my good friend, Angelika Schneider. Angelika and I met over twenty years ago when she came for Natural Horsemanship training in the United States. We both share the same philosophy on training and caring for horses. Her horses are all trained with a foundation of Natural Horsemanship.
We will meet the horses, and Angelika, myself and her team will match you with the horse that fits you best. We will then do some ground work and riding in her beautiful covered arena to get to know our horses better so we are ready to ride them out the following day!
Afterwards, we will have a picnic at the farm with local wines. We will then return to Casetta and have a Pizza Night. This is a tradition at the Casetta- their outdoor wood fired pizza oven definitely produces some of the best pizza in Tuscany, and we will have a hand in helping design them!

Pricing is an estimate at this time and IN EUROS. I am still waiting on some final bids, but it will be very very close to this:
$4958 double occupancy
$6586 for single
The euro is at the best that it has ever been. To get the best bang for your buck, I would suggest you prepay as much as you can earlier to get the best rate!
