Those crossings perfectly reflect our vision of horseback riding: exploration! The horse being, in our eyes, the best passer between man and nature, the GTMs are expeditions to discover the magnificent landscapes of the high mountains of the Southern Alps. Horses rarely take the same route every year.  Together we rediscover nomadic instincts, cross space but also time!

These rides take the "via Alpina", a route mapped out between the Adriatic and the Mediterranean, linking the 8 countries of the Alpine arc, from Slovenia to the Principality of Monaco over more than 5,000 km, sometimes the Great Alpine Crossing, which connects Lake Geneva to Menton, and most often cross-country trails! 

From the Roya valley to the Ubaye via the Tinée, the Vésubie, the high valley of the Var, alternating high-mountain mineral landscapes, generous mountain pastures, larch forests and high-altitude villages, this combination of wilderness atmospheres and traditional mountain habitats offers, beyond sportive performance, a week's journey through space - impressive landscapes - and time - heritage and authentic pastoralism.
