On the mountain plateau of Avelengo/Hafling, Merano 2000 and Verano/Vöran, there are many events related to the famous Haflinger horse. Riding stables offer personalized custom holidays for the entire family, from stable tours and introductory courses to horse riding on the longe, as well as rides and day trips.
In winter, riders and horses show their skills during the skijoring and night skijoring events through the snowy landscape. A highlight of the riding season is the Traditional Haflinger Horse Race (Haflinger Galopprennen) on Easter Monday, held at the Maia Race Course in Merano/Meran. For this event, the town of Merano comes alive with decorated horse-drawn carriages and brass bands.
