Cattle drive - Dates & Prices

This ride is a high value programme. It needs a lot of sophisticated logistics to make a riding experience like that possible. A lot of people and a lot of animals take part in this project and they all give their best.
The idea behind an event like this is not only, that riders should have fun, ride through fantastic nature and enjoy a cattle drive on horseback which will be unforgettable for sure.

 

 

It is also our wish to give our guests an insight into the old tradition of the shepherds on horseback in Maremma, of the „Butteri“.
It is a tradition that shaped the country, the work, the habits, the feasts, the costumes and last not least the breeding of horses and cows.
It is a tradition that – in view of the modernization of the agriculture – is in danger of extinction.  

 

 

 

It is a tradition, however, that makes the charm of Maremma and for which still today many people engage with all their heart. Such as the Mariotti family and their friends and colleagues.
In order that also in future Maremma horses and cows – cavalli maremmani e vache – can gallop together over big pastures.

You have the chance now, to be part of it.

 

Trek of 7 days:
The group starts from the home stable in Tuscany, starts with a starfish ride to match the horses on the first day and arrives then in Maremma after 2 days ride.
The tour back starts in Maremma with a starfish ride to match the horses, and after 4 days the group rides back to Tuscany.
