Why natural is better

Today I got a special visit at the equestrian center. A professional dog groomer came to take a look at the horses, and he explained me why we all should choose the natural style.   I’m one of those “crazy” horse owners that let my “poor” horse stay outside – day and night – totally…

Sushi time!

I´ve never told you this before, but I love sushi! Yesterday I went to a really high class sushi restaurant in Turin. There are so many different sushi-chains all over the area, but Shabu was great! International company Being 4 persons from 4 different countries, we´ve always got something to talk about – in English!…

Riding with a side pull

I´ve bought a custom made side pull at a horse event some time ago. I decided to try it out in the riding ground, and it works well! Riding bitless is really nice for both horse and rider. You don´t have to worry about not pulling the horse´s mouth and the horse relaxes a lot…

My old Australian stocksaddle

I´ve got a new chair in the living room… It´s actually my old Australian stock saddle. Oh gosh how it brings out a lot of memories! I bought this “art piece” while I was studying in the north-west of Australia. It was allready 30 years old – at least. Today it´s probably around 50-60 years…

The priest´s blessing

Once a year we usually bring the horses to the church to get the priest`s blessing. This is a typical Catholic tradition that goes back to the old times, when the humanity needed the horses for doing the agricultural work. The priest comes out of the church after the mass. He finds all the horses…

Riding on burned fields

There is nothing better than going for a long ride when the weather is getting warmer. It´s been a long winter and many cold tours. Today the sun was shining and the fields were perfect for galloping! Before the grass starts to grow it´s possible to ride everywhere! Crossing town I had to cross the…

The Egyptian Museum of Turin

Last Saturday we went to visit the Egyptian Museum of Turin. It´s the second biggest in the world, after the biggest one that lays in Cairo. It has recently been renovated, and I must say it has become much more interesting to visit. Tour for kids I was quite curious if my son would like…

Where my heart is

Sometimes is just so important to follow your heart. Put everything else aside and concentrate on what you really need… I couldn’t find peace in my heart until I finally went to Pian della Mussa. I needed to go cross country skiing in the sunshine while we still have got some snow. On my way…

Ready to ski in the alps!

It’s almost like getting back in time. Being so keen to go skiing is a feeling that I had almost put away a long time ago. But knowing that me and Luca have got a whole day to go skiing – without kids – and that I’ve got a great pair of new skis… well,…

I want to go skiing telemark!

I’m gonna tell you about my skis. Wherever I’ve taken them, they made people laugh. I just wanted to sharpen the edges and make them slide faster again. I didn’t want to entertain anybody… Hard to admit it, but my husband was right. It’s certainly time to buy a new pair. They didn’t even get…

Meeting Dino the Jockey!

    For a while ago I moved my horse back to another Equestrian center in the neighbourhood. This is where I used to spend my time with my old Haflinger Wolke, and I have so many nice memories from these good old days. Then I got to know a real jockey! These were the…

Finally riding together again

Finally me and my husband could go for a ride together. Thanks to the long period of snow and ice, Luca wasn`t able to go far thanks to his shod horse. Me, on the other hand, have been riding through all the winter time.   Since I´ve moved my horse all the way to Mathi,…
