Lusitano Horses

beautiful lusitanosMany centres will offer riders the opportunity to ride the world famous Lusitano horses. Known as the ?sons of the wind? by the ancient Greeks, these majestic horses were originally bred for warfare and bull fighting. As a consequence they are intelligent, highly responsive and agile and stunningly beautiful! Many riders say that once you ride Lusitanos you are hooked! They are very versatile horses and are increasingly internationally popular competition horses in a variety of disciplines and are even used to refresh the bloodlines of the Lipizzaners at the Spanish Riding School. Whether you are interested in trekking or studying dressage, you shouldn't miss this experience though you may go home dreaming of Lusitanos!

Goleg√£ Festival of the Horse

GolegaFinally if you are planning to come to Portugal in November don?t miss the unique Goleg√£ festival of the horse. Here at the heart of the traditional horse breeding region, riders and their horses, from all across Portugal gather for a week-long celebration of the horse. If you are travelling independently then you can get there by train from Lisbon, if you can we'd recommend staying overnight as there's a great atmosphere and lots to see in the evenings but you'll need to book accomodation well in advance.
We can arrange a visit with a local riding centre as a one day trip (subject to availability) or combined with a riding holiday.
