Itineraries on Horseback
The longest horse riding trail in Italy: 470 km of nature and culture...
A long trail to get to know and appreciate an extraordinary environmental and cultural heritage along old mule tracks, cart tracks and paths through landscapes of unscattered beauty, villages and hamlets, pastures, as well as beech and downy oak woods.
The itineraries (in Italian), most of which already exist, are intended to follow those that, for centuries, have connected hamlets and villages divided by the Gran Sasso massif or that have always been used by farmers to reach high altitude cultivated fields.
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.
