See the real Tuscan countryside
We spent a morning riding, followed by a tasting lunch during our recent October break in Tuscany. The weather was kind to us and it was a glorious autumn day. Our riding abilities range from beginner to expert and we all had a fantastic hack through the beautiful Tuscan countryside with Eric and his impeccably behaved and responsive horses. He is obviously passionate about his horses and a real expert, a great guide and instructor for the day. This is a fantastic way to get into the real Tuscan countryside, rather than just looking at it as you drive through. The whole day was so enjoyable and relaxed, and we followed our ride with a delicious tasting lunch of the farm's meat and cheese produce with friendly, warm and welcoming Andrea at the clubhouse. We really can't recommend this place highly enough :-) Thank you again for a great day out Eric and Andrea
Indispensabile per gustare la Toscana!
I have dreamed of visiting Tuscany to see the beautiful landscapes and architecture. Finally, I recently had the privilege to not only visit but see the beauty up close on horseback. The best word that came to mind was Heavenly. The day ride to CAPANNO DEI PARTIGIANI was spectacular. If only my camera could capture the true beauty I saw. What really made the experience great was the hospitality and gracious nature of Eric and Andrea. Further, was the quality of the rides made possible by these two hard working and caring people. I wanted to enjoy a day long (advanced) ride like I normally do on my own horses back in the states much to my pleasure the experience exceeded my expectation. Seeing the olive groves, trees, open land, ancient farms, the huge blue sky was only topped by Andrea's home made lunch at CAPANNO DEI PARTIGIANI. Eric and Andrea also went out of their way to assist me with travel and lodging to make my experience possible. My expectations were exceeded many times. I will return with the family. Grazie!!
A wonderful visit
We heard about Tegoni after dining at Agriteca restaurant in Radicondoli and having their wonderful salumi. We went for a tasting and a visit and it could not have been a more wonderful experience. The hosts, Andrea and Eric were so welcoming. Their horses are beautiful and the salumi delicious! We took a chance and brought back a few packets of salami and luckily we didn't caught so we can enjoy a bit of our time in Tuscany back in the United States. Our family highly recommends a visit to Tegoni during your time in Tuscany.
You will never want to leave!
There are not enough wonderful words to describe a day of horseback riding with Eric and Andrea at Fattoria Tegoni. I grew up on a ranch in Arizona, USA and have ridden most of my life. Eric is an extraordinary equestrian, trainer and the real deal "Horse Whisperer." The horses love and respect him and that fact is reflected in their behavior around him. His horse George is magnificent. Andrea is the most gracious, beautiful hostess who clearly knows how to make everything magical. If you have a chance to ride with Eric and Andrea, it will be an opportunity of a life time and you will never want to leave.
We miss our new found friends Eric and Andrea! We were in Tuscony for a nice honeymoon from the States and came across Tegoni's website. So glad we did. Eric went out of his way to ensure my wife had a wonderful ride on Dora. And I was thrilled with riding Athena. Andrea was incredible with the lunch she provided on the hill top. We have ridden horses all over, but to find Eric and Andrea was a hidden gem. They made it so much more than simply a horse ride. It was truly an experience. We look forward to remaining in touch with both! We would consider returning to Tuscany for no other reason than another visit to Tegoni! Ciao!
Un esperienza fantastica!
è stata un'esperienza che consiglio a tutti, riuscita soprattutto grazie alla disponibilità di Eric e alla fantastica scuderia, con cavalli ben addestrati e bellissimi!!
Ciao Eric & Andrea. Wishing I was back in the saddle. Nic Boyes
