Gregoriano Minervini

RIDING IN MOLFETTA

We looked for a place for Lili to ride and found a stable in Molfetta, the next town over. The owners are the Minervini family and boy do they have an interesting story! The father Greorio lived in the States for ten years, and is famous for riding a horse, solo, for ninetynine consecutive days from the Mexican border to Washington state. (He said the Sonoma desert part was 'very difficult' - I can only imagine).  His story has been written into a book, and it may be made into a movie as well!

The stable only does Western style riding, and we learned about completely new things to do with a horse such as reining and cutting.   Gregoriano's daughter Caterina was the teacher at Lili's lesson. She is wearing the 'Italia' cap in the photo above.
