On this fantastic horse riding holiday, Equestrian Escapes are giving you the chance to ride Lusitano horses through some of the most beautiful parts of Portugal. Accommodation here is a wonderful and old XVI Century convent that still stands in all its glory today. This horse riding holiday allows you to combine excellence in equestrian instruction, with historical and cultural extravagance.
The Alentejo Region in Portugal is well known for its beauty and is something that is not to be missed. Being rich in ancient legends and traditions, this area is dripping with magic! From the light early morning air, to the deep sundowns, with the rolling hills and ever reaching countryside, this holiday will most certainly make an impression on you.
The equestrian centre is only a short walk from the luxurious hotel. Lessons can start on the day of arrival if there is time, otherwise the next morning. You will have a combination of lessons and hacks out in the beautiful countryside, though you may choose your riding schedule, ensuring you get the most out of your horse riding holiday.
Take some time to check out the local town Evora – a UNESCO World Heritage site that is incredibly breath-taking as it is one of the finest examples of the Golden Age of Portugal. This site takes you back almost 2000 years, with its wall paintings and labyrinth-style setting.
This horse riding holiday from Equestrian Escapes allows you to explore Portugal like no other holiday. This offers a tranquil break away where you can immerse yourself in equestrianism, beauty and culture.
