Riding in Puglia:
Puglia is a fascinating region for riding enthusiasts who can spend one or more days in the name of psycho-physical well-being admiring the wonderful landscapes offered by the territory.
The three major areas of interest – gargano, Salento and the Baresi Murge – have a long series of routes to ride on horseback that can give first-class emotions.
Ideal for those who approach the first time with equestrian tourism, the itineraries of the Fasano area running through the countryside covered with centuries-old olive trees, fig plantations and ancient farms or heading to the beach until they reach the seashore among the dense dunes of Mediterranean scrub.
Don’t miss the opportunity for those who love the contact with the lush nature, the walks and trekking on a murgese horse in the Gargano National Park, one of the most beautiful in the country. The Murgese race, which is born in the Bari Murge, is considered noble because – it is said – in its body flows the “blue blood” of the fourteenth-century steeds of Emperor Frederick II of Svevia. It is possible Horseback tours of different lengths and difficulties even in winter through the snowy paths of the Umbra Forest,the Fourth Forest, Mount Calvo and many other resorts of interest.
The Salento also offers an incredible experience to riders who can admire this beautiful area of Puglia in all its beauty from different perspectives, between long sandy beaches and wonderful rocky coastlines, passing through the countryside dotted with stones and the fragrant Mediterranean scrub.
Unique in terms of beauty the path straddling the Alimini lakes,two beautiful lakes a short walk from the sea where the natural ecosystem manifests itself in a surprising biodiversity.
