In lush green or snow-covered San Vigilio, local horse breeds are rarer than in other parts of South Tyrol. At Mareo Horse Trekking, docile and hardworking Icelandic horses which are popular with adults and children alike call the shots. Besides riding lessons, experienced riders will enjoy hacks and treks in the splendid surroundings of the Dolomites: in Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park, on Kronplatz mountain, across flower-dotted meadows and fragrant larch woodland.
Mareo Horse Trekking may be found behind 'Ciamaor' sports ground, just 2 km from San Vigilio village centre, and is open all year round. Icelandic horses' calm Tölt and Pace gaits are ideal for long excursions and their gentle natures make them particularly suitable for beginners and children. On offer are lessons, hourly and daily excursions, riding by moonlight, horse and cart rides, tournaments and horse boarding.
