The walk on horseback with tasting is one of the activities of equestrian tourism that, most of all, allows you to immerse yourself in the context of a territory and to know its distinctive aspects.
The horse allows a close contact with the nature of a place, to enter it with respect and responsibility, to observe all the nuances and fully enjoy its beauty.
The tasting of typical products allows you to taste the goodness of the fruits of that land.
The combination of the natural landscape and food and wine is the center of this equestrian experience.
Value of typical products
Every region, province and territory of Italy brings with it ancient culinary and artisanal traditions linked to the culture and history of the place. From the typical products of an area it is possible to perceive the influences born from the encounter, of different cultures. Over the centuries, transhumanities, such as the one between Abruzzo and Puglia, migratory movements such as between Liguria and North Sardinia and foreign domination, have brought this mixture.
The typical products tell a story, its history, its culture, its development and are a valid tourist attraction, especially in an experience of sustainable tourism in contact with the rural world.
Gift a horse ride with tasting
Giving or giving yourself a walk on horseback with tasting is to be able to live a sensory experience in 360 degrees. Sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste are all involved, at different times, to build the narrative of what you are experiencing.
The offers of this type in Italy are many and range from the horse walk with tasting of local craft beer on the slopes of the Majella, to the walk on the beach and tasting of the products of the masseria in Puglia, from the weekend on horseback
with butteri and bivouac with the products of herding in Tuscany, on horseback with tasting of Soave wine in Veneto.
Just the horsewalk with wine tasting is one of the most requested experiences, especially by foreign equestrian tourism. This is why a specific project called Hippostrade Horse Winehas also developed in Italy.
There are many equestrian centers that offer the opportunity to ride among the vines of a wine cellar and then taste the wine produced there, combining the beauty of riding in the hills amid the rows of vines, to the pleasure of sipping a good glass of wine.

This type of experience is chosen by those who want to combine the thrill of a horseback ride in the open air with the pleasure of tasting the characteristic products of a territorial area letting go of a completely new experience.
It can also be an offer chosen by those who, visiting a region during a holiday, want to discover the food and wine wealth of the territory in a different and original way… and lets himself be seduced by a nice ride, followed by a nice lunch in good company.
