A Cavallo nel Parco is 11km from L’Aquila, on the edge of Assergi (890m asl), an ancient village and headquarters of Gran Sasso & Monti della Laga National Park. The equestrian club is found on the broad, gentle western slope of the Gran Sasso d’Italia massif, an ideal starting point for long rides in the high-altitude meadows and to fascinating villages that were sheep-rearing capitals for centuries. Pope John Paul II often sought peace in these secluded spots.
