Itineraries on Horseback
The longest horse riding trail in Italy: 320 km of nature and culture...
With its 320 km, the Horse Riding Trail of Gran Sasso d'Italia is the longest horse riding trail in Italy. It crosses the territory of 3 Provinces: L'Aquila, Pescara, and Teramo and 8 of the 11 tourist-environmental districts of the protected areas.
Along the way, eleven water points, nine drinking troughs and dozens of springs have been restored, in order to offer support and help also to sheep and cattle breeders. Nine rest areas equipped with fire points were set up, two mountain huts were renovated and eight sheds were set for stopping and sheltering horses near tourist service structures. Along the way are highlighted the naturalistic, historical-architectural and archaeological emergencies, as well as shelters, hostels and gastronomic specialities of the different territories crossed. The long itinerary connects farm and some equestrian centres of reference.
