Autumn, writing and goodbye

I´ve decided to change the style of my blog. As you can see, I´ve added a photo from the mountain of Valli di Lanzo on the front page. Piedmont is so much about the Alps.. It is autumn, and Christmas holiday is not far away. The Erasmus+ students that came to do a two weeks…

Back to barefoot!

I am so glad to tell you that I am finished with the traditional horse shoes. I´ve had a bad feeling in my stomach for some time, and it kept telling me that Moon needed a change. You might remember my former horse, a Haflinger called Soraya? I made her barefoot after using the Norwegian…

A small adventure in the mountain

Since I´ve finally got new wheels on my horse trailer, I thought it was time to test it in the mountain. So just a normal Friday morning I loaded the trailer with Moon, the car with Dakota and the saddle, and off we went! It all happened before I decided to paint the trailer red….

Ride and eat in Barbania

Hello all, I`m finally back writing again! This lovely ride in Barbania made me want to share some more of my riding experiences with you. Since I have a horse trailer I can go wherever I want. After months of typical Italian bureaucracy I am also able to registrate my travel online before taking off….

Many tourists…

My blog activity has been quite low lately, since I´ve been rather busy with other activities lately, like horse riding and guiding tourists to the restaurant. My horse trailer has been repaired and I will finally be able to bring Moon around on my own. Last weekend we visited the American horse saloon in Cremona,…

Trondheim- the nicest city in Norway?

After spending three days in Trondheim, I’d like to say that this is one of the most beautiful and cleanest cities in Norway. After spending years in Italy, I’ve forgotten how clean and well organized everything looks in a Norwegian big city. No garbage and no loud people. Even the dogs are clean, pure breeds…

Balon of Turin

Since I’m on my way to fly, it’s the perfect moment to tell you a story about Balon. It’s a historic place in Turin. The name comes from hot air balloons that came flying in from different locations in the Alps. As you might know, Turin is probably the only big city that is surrounded…

Ride to a restaurant!

Lately I’ve been bringing people from all over the world to a local restaurant on horseback. From the moment that I put my tour on Airbnb I’ve been meeting a lot of interesting and funny people. The first couple was Polish but lived in France. The second guests were an Italian couple from Milano and an…

The big gathering of horses in San Pietro!

Last Sunday was cold and cloudy, but that didn’t stop the horse riders of the area. Our goal was the church of San Pietro Coassolo.. For the first time in history (at least during my life in Lanzo) the priest of San Pietro was going to bless tractors, horses and dogs. My friend Lisa organized…

8th of March: a woman and a horse…

8th of March is the women’s day and it’s also the perfect day to tell the story about how big impact women can have on horses. And the other way around! I want to tell you the story about a former barrel race horse that really needed some love and attention. Sometimes you just bond…
