Lusitano Riding Centre Alcainca Program B


Lusitano Riding Centre Alcainca Program B
Lisbon Area Portugal

Spend a whole week or even just a few days at the world renowned Escola de Equitação de Alcainça. Each day you will work closely with and learn much from the  knowledgeable professional trainers of dressage on site (tuition available from novice through to high school dressage!). The town of Alcainça lies only 25 miles northwest of Lisbon, 4 miles from the famous cloister of Mafra, and 6 miles from the stunning Atlantic Coast. It is surrounded by wild pastures and small forests. The Atlantic Ocean on the west coast helps assure a nice, even temperature throughout the year so that even in the heights of July and August it never gets too hot to ride. Your gracious host, Salette Rodrigues, will make you feel right at home. 

The school's director, George Malleroni, studied with the legendary Nuno Oliveira for the last 10 years of the master's life. The instructors here are some of the finest dressage riders in the world, who can give lessons on any level. The riding school provides 20 highly trained Lusitano stallions for their guests. The program includes two 1.5 hour sessions per day - leaving very little time for activities other than a dip in the pool or sun tanning between lessons, so we advise if you wish to fit sight-seeing in as well into this intensive  program you save some days on either end of your stay at Alcainça or downgrade to the one session per day.  The groups are small, personalized and always divided according to riding level so that every rider gets a lot of personal attention.
