Other Activities

Animals, in particular horses, dogs and cats, offer many psychological, physical and social benefits. Horseback riding in the countryside, walking with the dog, cuddling our cats: these are just a few examples of the beneficial mutual relationship between them and us! Taking care of the animals to learn how to take care of ourselves!

Our Team

The multidisciplinary team members all have a special attraction for both people and animals. They are ready to offer specific educational interventions and personalized treatment programs.

Our Volunteers

Alpini, Scouts, young people and many local people dedicate part of their free time to participate actively in the life of the Association.

Our Animals

Our horses are our most special workers! All of them have been carefully chosen for this particular job. Our animals are always happy to see our clients and make them feel welcome.
