Introduction
Lisbon Area Portugal
Come improve your dressage skills on purebred Lusitano horses.

This program is ideal for those who wish to enjoy quality riding and have some time to relax. Each day, you will join two 1-hour dressage lessons and the rest of the day is free for you to explore the region.

Accomodation



Accommodations
This is a stationary ride so all nights are spent at the same accommodation.

Description
The Quinta can accommodate up to 2 people. In case there are more than 2 people, you will be accommodated at Casa do Alfaro and we will arrange the daily transfers for you.

Casa do Alfaro
This old agricultural house used to produce quality olive oil and wine and was recently refurbished to accommodate guests. Today, it offers 10 bedrooms, all equipped with air conditioning, cable TV and private facilities with a hair dryer. There is free Wi-Fi access in the common areas and an outdoor pool and a small garden where guests can cool off in the evening.
There is a laundry service available at this property.



Quinta
At the Quinta, the guesthouse has a private bathroom, a kitchenette and a living room with Wifi connection.


Meals
The package includes all meals (with drinks) from dinner on Day 1 to breakfast on the last day. During lunch and dinner, beer and wine from local producers are also included. Drinks outside of mealtimes can be purchased at the accommodation for an extra fee.

We served typical food from the region. 
Breakfast is usually Mediterranean, but we can adapt according to the clients requirements (if they prefer something different).

Dietary Restrictions
We can cater to most dietary restrictions with advance notice.

This trip includes some wine with dinner and can accommodate special dietary requests.

Riding



Horses
Our goal at the Stud is to breed and train Puro Sangue Lusitano (PSL) horses with good rideability. Besides P.S.L we also cross every year some of our mares with warmbloods. We believe that the warmblood is a very athletic horse that can benefit from the generosity, ability for collection and elevated gaits characteristic of the Puro Sangue Lusitano.
We also ride and train our horses, which allows us to know them better. We aim to offer to our clients a calm, supple, loose and flexible horse, happy and easy to ride.

Itinerary


Our clinic program is quite flexible. The package includes two 1-hour dressage lessons per riding day (no riding on arrival and departure days). If you wish to add extra lessons to your program, it is possible for an extra fee.
This clinic typically runs over one week but it can be shortened or lengthened depending on the guests' wishes and availability.

We offer a customized approach with well trained horses and highly prepared trainers so that you can improve every day. Exchange, sharing and conviviality are the keywords of our clinics, because there is no better way to learn.
The dressage lessons are based on classical riding and can be adapted to all riding levels from the most basic to most advanced (piaffe, passage, flying changes...).

In case you want to add more riding to your stay, it is possible to add trail rides for an extra fee.
