International Meeting of Equestrian Tourism

Aim of this meeting

The FITE aims to bring together local, national and European decision-makers, outdoor sports, tourism and rural associations, as well as stakeholders in equestrian tourism and the horse world. The aim is to exchange information on different practices, share ideas and promote outdoor sports, particularly equestrian tourism, and its economic, social and environmental benefits, with a particular focus on rural areas. All organizations are invited to take part!


3rd and 4th May, 2024!

Organized by the Italian Federation of Equestrian Tourism (FITETREC-ANTE) and the Fédération Internationale de Tourisme Equestre, the second edition of the International Meeting of Equestrian Tourism will take place in Rome, Italy, on May 3 and 4, 2024.

How did the idea come about?

The International Meeting of Equestrian Tourism was born in 2021 from an initiative of the FITE Board of Directors with the desire to talk about actions around equestrian tourism and share this practice with as many people as possible.

The FITE President, Frédéric BOUIX, approved the project and called for an international event to be held in 2022. 
The first Meeting took place on September 13, 2022 in Silkeborg, Denmark.

An event to exchange

Outdoor sports, of which equestrian tourism is a part, contribute to the vitality of the territories, notably through the discovery of their cultural, historical and natural heritage.

With this event, the FITE wanted to bring together decision-makers and stakeholders of equestrian tourism, in order to cooperate and create promising projects for the territories, from the local to the international level.

See you on May 3 & 4, 2024 for the second edition of the Meeting!
