Riding in the Dolomites
The amazing landscape of the Dolomites from horseback perspective. The manifold landscape of mountains, meadows and woods is a true Eldorado for horse-enthusiasts.
For instance during a ride on an Icelandic horse in the farm Weiderhof in Terenten or during some riding lessons with Claudia Steuer at Tharerhof in Olang. While the parents can relax in the wellness area of Hotel Tharerwirt, the little ones learn pony-riding and the right handling on and with the horse. It’s a paradise for men and horse!
Did you ever hear that cosmetics can be produced from mare milk? And that these cosmetics are antibacterial and help against eczema and other skin diseases? Visit the riding-stable Sonnenhof in Gsies, where the farmers are specialized in milking the mares and in producing natural cosmetics. A mare milk lipstick or soap would be a nice and original souvenir for your friends at home, aren’t they?
The vocalist of the very famous folk-music-band Kastelruther Spatzen, Norbert Rier, has accomplished a real paradise for men and horse at Seiser Alm alpine pasture. Mr. Rier cares about 30 Haflinger brood mares and 4 Haflinger stallions. A Visit to Mr. Rier’s stable surely pays.
Last but not least we recommend to horse-enthusiasts the Icelander-stud in St. Vigil in Alta Badia. There are honest horses, where already I made my first attempts on a horse. Since then, I can’t any more imagine a life without horses.
