Trail Horse Riding

Trail riding takes riders on outdoor trails and paths, some of which have been specifically created for horse riding. The level of difficulty often depends on the terrain and distance.

THE REGION OF LOMBARDY

Lombardy is the region you’ll be based in. It is a large northern Italian region with diverse landscapes of dramatic mountains, rolling hills, and vast plains. Its capital city is Milan, which is a global hub for fashion, art, design, and finance, while its Lakes Region is home to iconic destinations like Lake Como, Lake Garda, and Lage Maggiore. Lombardy’s cuisine favours ingredients like rice, beef, and butter, and has many commonalities with the cuisine of central Europe.

The cities and regions of Lombardy each have their own culinary specialties, and some characteristic dishes and desserts include risotto, polenta, and panettone.  Some of the most popular wines from Lombardy are sparkling wines and produced in areas like Franciacorta. High-quality white, red, and rosé wines are also produced in the Valtellina region and along the shores of Lake Garda.
