The horse has been an ally of the Tuscan Maremma for centuries. Thanks to the "working mount" a long series of daily agricultural functions were performed in the saddle (which is actually called Bardella). In short, the Maremmani lived the farm on horseback. The CowBoys of the Tuscan Maremma are called Butteri. The Butteri still exist and, on only a very few farms, are still operational in leading the Maremma cow herds or in estate control activities. There are, however, many "schools" that keep the technique of working herding alive. In many cases, for example for the Butteri Group of the Upper Maremma, interesting shows are also offered that showcase the mastery of the Butteri. A very nice experience for children.
