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…

Just another nice ride in the hills

After the rather exhausting ride from Lanzo to Ca Bianca, the ride to our favourite restaurant in Cudine was just relaxing! It’s not only my favourite restaurant. It’s also my favourite track in the hills. You hardly need to touch the asphalt, there are so many trails in the forest! The ride from Mathi to…

Why horse riding can be more secure than walking…

You might think I’m kidding, but I’m actually serious about it! Horse riding can be more secure than walking under some kind of circumstances. Let me mention some examples from my own life: 1. Dangerous animals in the forest Snakes The possibility to be bitten by a snake is much higher by feet. Lately I’ve…

A touristic tour to the restaurant

Last Friday I arranged the first touristic tour to a restaurant on horseback! A young and lovely couple that are originally from London came to experience this speciality! I picked them up on the train station in Mathi. Jason and Gaia came out from the last waggon, but they recognized me easily. First we went…

Escaping the rain by going to Norway!

After weeks of bad weather, I’ve done some reflections. I am actually soon going to Norway to escape all the rain! It used to be the opposite way around, but the climate is changing! Anyway, all this rain is quite normal during the spring time. I’ve had a lot of time to heal my bones…

From Georgia to Piedmont

Lasha (25) is a young man from Georgia that has been living in Lanzo for some weeks. All thanks to a special exchange program the high school of Lanzo is joining. Last night there was a big event where the students, teachers and even the major talked about everything they had learned thanks to this…

The lonely rider

Soraya doesn’t like to go trekking alone. Yesterday was even worse. I had to saddle her before she had finished her breakfast, which made her furious! I had decided to take the trail that leads to Cudine. It was a 3,5 hour ride in the end. In the forest I saw the first sign of…

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…

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,…
