The emotion of emotions.


Horseback riding in Cortina, the pearl of the Dolomites, is an experience that those who, like we, 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.

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.
