Horses & horsemen 2022

The commemoration

The Reggia of Carditello (San Tammaro, Caserta), Sunday 23 October from 9.30 to 18.30, will host the sixth edition of Horses & Horsemen, the equestrian event organized by the Real Sito di Carditello Foundation. A magnificent show on the musical notes of the Fanfare: the training department of the “Pastrengo” Squadrons Group  will be the protagonist of the final exhibition, recalling glorious pages of history in a succession of rapid evolutions and complex plots, taken from the traditional figures of the carousel.

“The Horses & Horsemen equestrian event has a highly symbolic value for the Foundation. It is a historic moment that marks the decisive step in the context of the enhancement agreement linked to the breeding of the Government Breed of Persano in Carditello. We are charting a new course to give the right value to the Government Breed, confirming those characteristics typical of the species, such as elegance, running, endurance and jumping”

During the day

It will be possible to listen to the US Naval Forces Europe Band repertoire, the band of the US Naval Forces in Europe and Africa, observe the Palace from above with the Volare sull’Arte hot-air balloon and participate in historical re-enactments, theatrical forays and special visits dedicated to the horses of the government breed of Persano, saved from extinction and bred in Carditello. The only pure nucleus, with the brand of the breed, present in the world.

“An important opportunity to express our values and confirm the Foundation's mission by promoting historical re-enactments, enriching our tourist offer and protecting the territory thanks to the collaboration with the Command of the Carabinieri's Environmental Forestry and Agri-Food Units. Precisely in Carditello the CUFA will guarantee the surveillance of the extraordinary monumental building and the control of the surrounding areas through horse-mounted patrols that will use Persano horses ”
