Full description

Visit the most beautiful places in the Novarese area with a 1-hour horseback ride in the Borgomanero woods and immerse yourself in unspoilt nature in the company of a sweet horse.

You can discover some of the most evocative places in the area, such as the San Michele hill and its vineyards, or you can have fun exploring the wooded hills such as Motto Duno.

And if this is your first time on horseback, don't worry: a professional equestrian guide will accompany you along the entire route, teaching you the basic riding techniques.

What we will do

We will meet at the riding school in Borgomanero, in the province of Novara. Here we will be welcomed by the equestrian guide and get to know the beautiful trained horses that will accompany us on our tour.

After familiarising ourselves with the animals and learning basic riding techniques, we will be ready to set off on our horseback ride in the wooded area of Borgomanero. We will explore the Novara hills along beaten paths through deciduous woods, pastures and vineyards, surrounded by unspoilt nature.

We will proceed on horseback to the church of San Michele or to Motto Duno, depending on weather conditions and the condition of the trail.

A qualified guide will accompany us on foot along the route for our safety and that of the horses. For this reason, we will never ride at a trot, but always at a walking pace.

The activity has a total duration of approximately 1 hour and ends with the return to the riding school.
