Route de la mer
Breeding horses, galloping on routes between the mountains and the sea… Romain Provent says it clearly himself: "There are too many great moments in this job to choose just one in particular!"
His profession is his passion. As he grew up among horses, nothing is more natural for him! Now he dreams of sharing this passion with as many people as possible… Both tourists and local young people alike have already enjoyed time at U Tragulinu, his ranch.
With his ranch situated opposite the famous sandy Farinole beach, Cap-Corse, Romain has developed his stud with his majestic stallion Cumpagnu. Since 2012, he has also made it his goal to enhance the Corsican equine species. The Corsican horse, U Paganacciu, particularly robust and brave, is making a real comeback as part of the island heritage.
Breeding horses is not a part-time activity; it demands total dedication. "Come rain or shine, the stud’s health and reproduction needs to be looked after", he says. Now recognised professionally, Romain is quick to note that support from his family and help from the community have contributed to his success.
Whether you’re starting out or an experienced horse rider, come and experience sublime rides lasting a couple of hours or a couple of days… From the San Leonardo hill to the Farinole beach, Romain will love telling you stories of century-old vines, rivers and hidden springs…
