The horseback ride allows you to experience nature from a different perspective. The relationship with the animal makes the experience more exciting. The route, all on dirt farm road, runs in its entirety of the Valley of Clavalité, (1,500 m in altitude) of particular conformation geomorphological with the presence of huts and sheds to shelter cows. The ascent through old mayen now almost obsolete but where there is still a trace of the ancient agro-pastoral activities, and sides of the mountain pine forest. Beautiful view of the plateau Clavalitè, a panoramic view on the Punta Tersiva. Good chance of spotting wildlife of the alpine horizon (marmots, chamois, ibex, eagles). Possibilities, depending on the season, visit the Alpine Grand'Arp. The climb to the bivouac Rotary-Borroz no particular technical difficulties, but takes 4 hours.

Basic knowledge of English/American riding is required and a medium level of sports training.
