Location

Circolo Ippico La Cordijana is located inside the Abruzzo Racecourse, set in a loop of the River Pescara and surrounded by a park of 36 hectares. Despite being in Sambuceto, part of San Giovanni Teatino, the racecourse is on the border of the city of Pescara, and a green haven in the urban fabric of the two municipalities merging seamlessly at the international airport.

 

About us and what we do

La Cordijana is an amateur sports club, FISE-affiliated for Olympic equestrian disciplines, taught by Emiliano Varagnolo, who has been chosen several times for the national show-jumping team and is a Level 2 instructor. The pony section is managed by instructor and psychologist Valentina Cappelluti. The club also offers cross-country riding, which can be practiced in the huge racecourse park and in the field outlined by the racetrack.
