When you get off the cable car in San Genesio/Jenesien and look at the fields and meadows on the high plateau, you will certainly notice one thing: horses everywhere you look. San Genesio/Jenesien is called the home of the Haflinger. The popular riding horses come from South Tyrol and are known for their friendly nature, which makes horse riding a real pleasure – even for beginners. Fancy riding a horse or a carriage ride in San Genesio/Jenesien? Four riding stables nearby offer riding lessons, trail rides, half-day and day rides, as well as panoramic carriage rides, where you can get to know the beautiful natural landscape as well as our wonderful Haflinger horses. Also we – your hosts – love the Haflinger and have our own farm only a few minutes’ walk from your Hotel Saltus. Ride through San Genesio/Jenesien, past larch meadows, spruce forests, and towards the horizon – accompanied by the feeling of travelling through time. Relax on a horse-drawn carriage ride, which will put a smile on your face and promise unforgettable panoramic moments – with the rhythmic sound of hooves, delight, and breathtaking views.
that will carry you through the mountains
Haflinger are true mountain horses, with their home on the Monzoccolo/Tschögglberg. The horses feel most at ease at altitudes between 1,500 and 2,000 metres above sea level – and you can see that. Due to their gentle character and reliability, Haflinger horses are ideal for anyone who wants to try horse riding but does not yet have any experience. San Genesio/Jenesien is the home of these gentle creatures – and your holiday at the Hotel Saltus is a wonderful opportunity to experience the original equestrian sport first-hand.
