Hi from Italy


My name is Francesco and i'm from Italy, i have three equines: an Haflinger pony, an Italian draft horse, and a mule.

i joined this forum because almost no one rides mules here in Italy so there's very little knowledge here about saddle mules, luckily i can write and read english decently so here i am.

Italy has many good places for trail riding as long as you stay away from big cities, luckily i live in a really good spot (in Lunigiana, northern Tuscany) with a maze of riverside and hill trails.

anyway, here's a pic of my "team", from left to right: Jimmy, 22 years old Haflinger gelding, Lampo, 34 years old Italian Draft gelding (still healthy, strong and rideable) and Nerone, a sweet gentle 5 years old john mule.

Hello Jimmyhaflinger! I believe I've seen you around on another forum as well - maybe horse.com? I'm jungle_cat there.

Love your horses - especially your haflinger! I have two and they are the best.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
