Andrea Bocelli's Back Riding Horses After Scary Fall Last September

Andrea Bocelli's one tough son of a gun ... he's back to riding horses nearly a year after falling off one.

The famous Italian tenor got back on this beautiful stallion Monday on Miami Beach. The 59-year-old strapped on his riding boots but, equestrian be damned -- shorts and a T-shirt will do.

As we reported ... Andrea suffered a head injury last September while riding near Pisa, Italy. The fall was so scary he had to be airlifted to a hospital. Good news though -- a rep at the time told he us he was doing well after his hospital visit. Clearly the fall wasn't gonna deter him.

Giddyap!!
