PORTUGAL

This Southern Europe country is a beautiful land of marked contrasts. The white sand beaches, sapphire blue seas and fragrant citrus groves of the Algarve give way to the vibrant green hills and vast lakes. Inland, beyond the mountains of Monchique and the Serra do Caldeirao, stretch the Alentejo plains, a magnificent landscape of tiny whitewashed villages, mighty rivers, and cork and pine forest. Stretching out beyond lies the beautiful city of Lisbon, then the cooler more temperate climate of North Portugal. Bustling Porto, with its medieval alleys, extending to vineyards, deserted beaches, granite villages, lush river valleys and mountains (snow-covered in winter) leading up to the Spanish border.

Portugal's climate and varied terrain makes it an ideal year round destination for a Riding Holiday. Mid Portugal, is one of the most unspoilt, protected natural terrains for Horse Riding in Europe. Trek through sweet scented eucalyptus, pine and cork oak forests, canter on heather clad hilltops, or past vast sweeping wheat and sunflower. Experience the delights of receiving Dressage Tuition on stunning, highly schooled Lusitano Horses. Alternatively, if you are looking for a Beach Riding Holiday, where better to enjoy long sunny, sandy canters than the 100km of rugged Natural Protected Park of the Alentejo coast.

“We had a lovely week here. The riding was great and it was good to be in a quiet rural area, away from the touristy areas.”
