Our meeting point is the riding stables of the agritourism in Casal Velino.
After preparing the horses we’ll head towards the sea where we can canter along the sandy beach as far as the foothills of Velia (Elea), cradle of the Eleatic School founded by the famous philosophers Parmenides and Zeno.
Continuing on our way, we’ll ride through ancient olive groves and breathe an air rich in history and mythology: we’re on the crest of the gods, close to the terraces sacred to Jupiter! Here the trail skirts the walls of the ancient city, immersing us in an exceptional landscape pungent with herbs typical to the Mediterranean maquis.
After this exhilarating morning, we stop for lunch: some excellent home-produced grilled meat, a glass of good wine, warm air, clear sky, lush countryside and great company! There’s no better way to unwind for a couple of hours before resuming our journey.
Back in the saddle, we ride down to the plains and reach the stables of the agritourism in the afternoon to the rhythm of trot and canter.
