Saturday evening, after the accommodation in the rooms, we meet for the due presentations, an aperitif together, a chat and the assignment of the horses.Sunday we spend the whole day on horseback, with a picnic, and return to Cornacchino. This first day is very important, it is a matter of "creating the group", of checking the combinations between the rider and the horse, explaining our travel equipment, our way and our rules of behavior in traveling on horseback.In the 5 days of travel, the day normally involves a long morning and a shorter afternoon, for a total of between five and six hours a day.

All the horses are trained in Western riding and particularly suitable for trails.

Your riding gear should be comfortable and most importantly, should not be brand new (especially footwear), since new gear often holds unpleasant surprises. The footwear should be comfortable not only for riding, but also for walking, with a hard sole that permits a good contact between foot and stirrup. Footwear with a slick sole and very tight clothing should be avoided. The trousers should be comfortable and robust. You may also need a raincoat , a hat for protection, a portable light, a small knife, swimwear, and a sleeping bag; you should bring along a light jumper for the evening. The belongings together should not be too bulky since there is limited space on the transport vehicle and in the saddlebags. Please avoid suitcases with a hard surface. Your guide can provide basic medication and will take along a first-aid kit on the trek. Any health conditions that require special medication should be brought to the attention of the guide before departure on the trek. Allergy sufferers should bring their own medicines, as those who suffer allergies from common medications.
The program may be modified at any time due to prevailing weather conditions or for technical reasons.
