Itineraries on Horseback

The Park Authority has signed an agreement with the horse riding tourist association "Il Cavalcavalli". Thanks to this agreement, an itinerary entirely accessible on horseback, called "Ippovia del Parco" (The Park Horse Riding Trail) has been created. The itinerary develops for over 150 km and crosses the whole stretch of the Po River Park in the area of Turin, from Racconigi to Crescentino. The Park Horse Riding Trail develops between the river and the hill along banks, dirt trails, or narrow asphalt roads. The Park Horse Riding Trail also gives the opportunity to cross the town of Turin on horseback, offering wonderful views on parks, castles, artistic and historical evidences. You can go along the Park Horse Riding Trail alone or in small groups, if you want to carry out a long trekking in more laps.
The Park Horse Riding Trail in the Province of Turin is described here divided into 4 laps, each about 40 km long.
