Horseback riding in Cortina. The emotion of emotions.
Horseback riding in Cortina, the pearl of the Dolomites, is an experience that those who, like us at Club Horse, love horses and their elegance, must absolutely put it into their travel plans.
The name Cortina seems to derive from the Ladin diminutive of curtis which, in the Middle Ages, indicated small communities but could also indicate a small courtyard, a space delimited by a wall.

Horseback riding in Cortina in the Dolomites, perfect for a horse ride and Unesco World Heritage Site, is an extraordinary and unforgettable experience that will remain in your memories forever and do not forget that the Italy Polo Challenge is held in Cortina.
The peaks sculpted by the weather are today a geological treasure that gives the landscape a unique beauty because the particular type of rock, the dolomite, gives these mountains, at sunrise and sunset, a color that goes from pink to fiery red, particularly visible on summer evenings.
To choose among the many routes that this extraordinary area offers, we suggest you visit this site or contact the equestrian centers in the area (you can find them on the FISE Veneto website) who will be happy to help you.
Finally, if you are traveling with your horse, read our tips on how to ride with the horse here. Thank you.
