Our world of horses

The horses in Cornacchino live in complete accord with their natural needs

Our world of Horses

Cornacchino hosts more than 60 horses, who live in small groups, outdoor on 100 acres of pasture land, completely according to their natural needs of socialization and movement. The experience of many years, the large number of horses „at work“ and security of the western riding allow, even to those who are beginners, to begin a journey, starting from the first lessons in a horsemanship and going through walks and the trek’s tasting, to the real trek, the final destination for nature lovers and horses. Everyone with one‘s own times and needs.

Our horses are safe partners

Our many years of experience and the security offered by western riding and our training of horses gives us the opportunity to accompany all riders, even beginners, off-road. Starting with the lessons on the riding arena and in the area, over horse rides and trial treks, up to a multi-day hike. A dream of many riders and lovers of nature and horses!

Our approach

Cornacchino specializes in western riding. Our horses are trained by Fabio using the "Natural Horsemanship & Westernriding" method.

The initial training consists of teaching the horses to trust humans, and subsequently to carry out all the necessary movements in the countryside : walk, jog, trot, canter, gallop, back, side passes, gallop changes, transitions, jumping, and water crossing. The horses carry out much of their training in the countryside, learning while having fun and at the same time increasing their level of experience.

Western riding

We consider the Western Riding to be the most comfortable and convenient for travelling. With a well-trained and responsible horse, the Western saddle allows us to enjoy ourselves in the countryside and to overcome difficult passageways with the utmost security,. Riding with a Western saddle requires a minimum physical effort. The horse's gaits are more comfortable and as a result, the rider doesn't feel exhausted at the end of the day, but satisfied and happy.
The weight of the rider is distributed over a surface larger than that of the English saddle, and the center of mass is lower, making it easier both for the horse and the rider.

Riding lessons and rides

Just like the foal, the beginning rider from the first lessons, should learn while having fun. The student learns to feel the horse and to use physical communication with him though his /her body, using natural and intuitive movements and paying a particular attention to the movement of the basin. This allows a relationship of collaboration between horse and rider (which is difficult to establish otherwise) and to take on all the horse's gaits in the first few lessons. The instructor's goal is to prepare the students to to a level of skill and confidence to face a one-week trek.
All of our lessons in the ring are followed by an hour’s riding in the countryside. This allows the rider to relax and to establish greater confidence in the horse.
Our horses are very experienced and very good-natured and even in the most difficult situations. you will be amazed by their calm and preparation.
The wonderful nature around will give the chance to have many walks, very different from each other for landscape, nature and equestrian commitment.
