Hypothetical one-day schedule:
Departure in the morning at 9: 30 from Ranch Brionna, passage in the resort “Montenero Val Cocchiara”, in one of the most beautiful scenery in Europe, we will ride in the middle of a herd of about 900 horses and cows, something that can be admired in a few places in the world.
Across the valley we will find ourselves walking uphill trails through the woods of beeps and conifers.
The trail will then take us to the lake of the Broken Mountain.
We will start again at the venue around 14: 00 where we will make an alternative route passing through the resort Casone di San Francesco and where we will tackle climbs and descents in our immense hardwood forests, until we reach the Ranch
Trekking a horse in the Abruzzo National Park, Lazio and Molise. The Ranch offers horseback trekking to discover some of the most beautiful and scenic scenery in Italy, immersed in the Abruzzo National Park, Lazio and Molise. The treks we propose are aimed at beginners and non-beginners, or anyone who wants to experience a new and unique experience in close contact with nature, having the opportunity to immerse yourself for a few hours in the natural landscape typical of this area.
The riding trek is a new way to experience the horse that will allow you to enter the rural areas of the Abruzzese and Molisana area, walking not only flat paths in the valley, but also paths within the woods in the surrounding mountains. The route winds through the ancient Tratturi of the Abruzzo National Park Lazio and Molise, retracing the steps of the ancient shepherds who moved their flocks from the stalls to the sea, all adorned with magnificent natural landscapes that accompany the whole route. The route will also take us inside the Pantano della Zittola, a site of community interest and Special Protection Zone, populated by herds of cows and grazing horses, an area with a high biodiversity index and flown over at certain times of the year by migratory birds. The valley is also inside a natural amphitheatre: the Mainarde mountain range surrounds the Pantano and helps to make the landscape unique.
The Trekking horse in the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park can be carried out all year round.
Excursions depart from the Ranch and are always accompanied by a guide who at the beginning of the walk will hold a short briefing explaining some basic notions of horse riding.
