Location

Team Horse San Pietro ad Lacum is located at about 500m asl, on a farm in the Teramo hills looking out to the nearby Adriatic Sea, just 9.5km from the city centre. The handiest way to get there is on the SP18, heading in the Varano direction, another Teramo district, which is 600m from the equestrian club. Approaching Varano, you will see signs for the entrance gate to club. The district takes its name from the small church dedicated to Saint Peter Apostle, which a graffiti inscription dates 1691.

The equestrian club facilities are located on the various wide terraces of a slope that offers a view of hills and river valleys as far as the Adriatic, and a breath-taking view of the Gemelli Mountains, the eastern outpost of the Gran Sasso & Monti della Laga National Park.

 

About us and what we do

Team Horse San Pietro ad Lacum is FISE-affiliated for Olympic disciplines and is managed by Andrea, a Level 1 federal instructor, also qualified for endurance and ride leader. Then there is Rina, a therapeutic riding instructor who also teaches competitive and non-competitive riding with horses and ponies, horse-ball. She leads rides in the district, along the course of the Fiumicino torrent, at the sea, and takes treks in Gran Sasso & Monti della Laga National Park. With her students she has won the Italian Pony Club Championship several times. Andrea is also a passionate beekeeper.
