An exciting riding trip, three days in close contact with nature, an excursion to discover the biggest lake in Italy and the second biggest in Europe, Lake Occhito.
Lake, forests, trails, horses, unspoilt nature and healthy eating, this is what you will find. The entire area is an important resting place, refuge and breeding ground for numerous animals, and the existing fauna is varied. We can find various species of mammals (wolf, wild boar, porcupine, marten, stone marten, badgers, otter) birds (black kite, red kite, buzzard, mallard, tawny owl, owl, heron) as well as various species of fish present in the reservoir (carp, chub, trout perch, southern bleak, carp). All meals are based on typical local products.

Attention to detail, respect for the environment and for the horse are the strengths that distinguish us. the experience is for everyone, even beginners given the non-demanding route and the daily kilometres within everyone's reach.

Il Molise incontaminato

Molise is one of the most beautiful and authentic regions in Italy. Riding a horse then is truly fantastic. Surrounded by nature and unspoiled landscapes, the step of the fantastic horses will make you glimpse an alternation of stretches of water, sheep tracks, forests, hills and glades.
The charm of ancient beauty in the midst of greenery, where you can have a fantastic adventure horseback riding experience.

If you have always wanted to have an experience immersed in a unique and unspoiled nature where everything tastes like freedom, this is the region to visit.
