PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The Association A.S.D. Ali del Vento (Wind Wings) works in the field of horseback riding both with lessons in the riding
school and with walks.
The activity carried out also has a strong social value in the exercise of Assisted Interventions with Animals (IAA) in
favor of the disabled and on the vision of a man-horse ethical perspective and on the ethological approach, not based
on the exploitation of the animal but on its respect and welfare as fundamental elements.
The horses of the school, in fact, all have special stories and bad experiences left behind. The recovered well-being of
these horses is a wonderful combination with the happiness of children, disabled or not, who can enjoy the
relationship with these beautiful animals. Among the objectives there is also the development of horseback riding for
all (including adults) at low cost: horseback riding can be a sport for everyone and not a luxury.
The Centre has:
- a covered riding stable with sand bottom of the dimensions 20 x 36 meters;
- stable composed of 14 boxes with covered lane with a width of 3 meters;
- covered rod with a diameter of 10 m
- open field of dimensions 30 x 40 meters / large paddock;
- 7 paddocks 12 x 12 meters;
