Leaving Ile-Rousse, you cross a dirt track on your right, which goes into the maquis for several kilometres. You walk through the Parc de Saleccia and quickly, between the olive trees and the oaks, you see the first horses. In summer, they go down to their grazing quarters – and you head out with them from the sea to Ostriconi. The Arbo Valley horses are mostly Anglo-Arab and Corsican breeds. Ten ponies also live at the heart of this beautiful landscape, which will delight children. Most are born locally.
This centre offers classes, introductory sessions and competitions – you can also book rides for an hour or a half-day, either in the forest or on the beach. In addition, sea ‘baptism’ rides are possible for riders aged two and over.
