Over the last few years, in honour of the “Carnival Sunday parade” Alta Badia farmers meet up for a day dedicated entirely to their great passions – horses and sleighs. Dressed up in characteristic festival costumes and sitting on their traditional sleighs they go for a ride along the snow filled meadows to the La Villa sports field where they participate in a horse-drawn sleigh contest. No fixed times have been arranged as of yet, because at least on one day in the year the participants want to take advantage of the utmost freedom of movement, stopping off wherever and as many times as they wish and moving from one place to another on a whim. Arrival time in La Villa is expected to be approximately 12 o'clock where the annual club competition will take place.
Walking along one of the winter trails at the bottom of the valley between Pedraces, La Villa and San Cassiano you may even bump into this jolly convoy – savour this moment as a precious gift from your holidays in Alta Badia.
