Horse riding in Abruzzo
Ecotourism includes a wide range of activities, but the basic thing is being in touch with the still unspoilt nature: equestrian tourism in Abruzzo is always richer and richer in paths.
Today, we are used to mechanic means of transportation, and it seems strange for us to think of a horse, which for millenniums has been helping men, as an adventure partner to trust during excursions and walks immersed in nature.
Abruzzo, with its parks and its immense woodland, is the ideal place to learn the basics of a sport that brings men back in touch with the still unspoilt nature. Equestrian tourism is growing, and in Abruzzo almost 20% of country houses organize horse riding tours.
Different names for horse riding

Horse riding tours attract large groups of tourists: this is the reason why Il Cascinale has a price agreement with the Maneggio “Il Vecchio Forte”, where you can take your first lessons and then leave for fantastic adventures in the nature of Abruzzo.
