Riding on good old tracks!

Since I´m going to Sardinia tomorrow, I wanted to take a long ride with Soray before leaving. She still needs to slim down, and luckily Andrea came with me. We went to discover some good old tracks in the neighborhood. On the way towards our meeting point Soraya kind of freaked out. We were trotting…

An unexpected problem

Yesterday I went up the hill to finally clean the old mule track that combine our valley with the valley of the restaurant Della Valle. I went there with my friend, my little son and Dakota. We had a lot of motorized equipment, like a chainsaw and edge cutter. That was the reason we got into trouble! The neighbour…

Riding to the restaurant with Soraya

It’s been a while since I went to the restaurant Della Valle on horseback. Since Moon managed to tear down the fence while leaning on it, I’ve been scared about tying up another horse in the same parking lot… But then I was invited by some of my favorite riding friends, Lisa and Andrea… Since I…

Biking among horses in the famous royal park “La mandria”

What a wonderful way to spend a warm and sunny Sunday after a whole week in the cold North… This is a quite unusual sight in Italy. Horses running free with their foals and friends! Normally you see them inside the stables or in small paddocks, one by one. It was such a nice ride (even…

Riding back to the restaurant “Della Valle”

Since I’m travelling to Norway for Easter, I wanted to enjoy the warm weather we`ve got here in Piedmont. So I invited “the Cowboy” Andrea to ride with me to the restaurant Della Valle. It lies just above the riding center, less than an hour ride. Changing horses I decided to use Nike today instead…

Why putting on a shirt makes me happy

You might ask yourself:  How can a shirt make me so happy? Well, this morning I decided to dress up for both; City and Horse riding. Just to save some time between the appointment in Turin and the appointment with my friend. The only thing you need to swap, is the shoes into some really…

Decathlon in the center of Turin

Another day, when me and my friend were doing some shopping in the center, we discovered a newcomer. Decathlon is a sport gear chain from France that just openend a new store in Piazza Carlo Felice. The store is made up on 1900 square meters over two floors. I really like this chain, since they…

In the honor of a Red horse

I guess you are curious about my horse experiences? Unfortunately I´ve had many, and this means I wish I`ve had less horses (and problems) during the years… But my dream is still to find the “perfect horse”, and live happily ever after…. This is me riding Red without reins. He did that only for me…

Riding to the restaurant

Today I decided to go for a ride up the hills to the nearest restaurant Della Valle. The spring time is here, and I really wanted an ice cream. And Moon really wanted to run over the green fields! After a rather breathtaking ride I ordered an ice cream and a cappuccino as soon I…

Starting the season with NBHA

It’s spring time and that also means a lot of barrel racing ahead of us. Nicole Reineri (10) and Lady started out last Sunday with a competition arranged by NBHA (National Barrel Horse Association of Italy). Nicole has been doing pony games competitions almost since she was born. She has been growing up in the…
