Fieracavalli, in addition to benefitting from the already proven powers of horse therapy, now sees the "Aria Aperta" Centre promote donkeys and create socialising occasions for families, children and people with different abilities.
Slow, thoughtful and endowed with a character that tends to arouse empathy, donkeys - thanks to all these features - are increasingly used for educational activities and relationships between people. This is how the Caring Horses, Guide Donkeys came into being - thanks to which, on all four days of the event in a dedicated ring next to Area A, visitors will discover the beneficial characteristics of donkeys... the other half of the equestrian world.
A very varied range of activities is offered and change in line with the needs of individuals. Grooming activities help create a physical relationship with the animals before moving on - with the Asinobus initiative - to overcome the fear of riding, through to actually riding a donkey independently and thereby earn a genuine "license".
