Horse Riding Holidays in Central Portugal
If you love riding, join us on our Horse Riding Holidays in Central Portugal! We offer quality riding packages that take the guess work out of planning! From arrival to departure, we have it all organized!
These tours are designed to take you to the heart of the country away from the well trod tourist trails. Created by a leading Lusitano horse breeder you are assured not only of a quality Lusitano to ride and also an insight into local culture! Immerse yourself in beautiful and unspoiled landscapes! In addition to these riding holidays we can also organize half and full day rides and weekend breaks!
Ribatejo is a privileged place for Puro-Sangue Lusitano horses. They are noble and intelligent animals with a proud posture and gentle temperament. There is no better way of experiencing the culture of breeders, riders and everything Lusitano! Along with great riding, we make sure you also get to know the local history, culture, tradition and local wine and gastronomy.
On each tour there will usually be a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 riders. You should have some previous riding experience and be aged over 10 years old. Due to the slender build of Lusitanos, there is a weight limit of 90kg for riders. Our brochures include provisional dates for the holidays but this may be subject to change so please contact us if you are interested in a different date.
Some of the tours have a flexible number of days so you can choose to join the whole tour or just a few days of it. Please ask us for full programs and packages! Looking for a one day trek or lessons? Check out our Central Portugal Horse Riding Day Trips!
