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 but also an insight into local culture and a chance to discover beautiful, unspoilt landscapes.
In addition to these riding holidays we can also organize half and full day rides and weekend breaks, hunting trips and other wonderful experiences to guarantee your holiday is an unforgettable one
Ribatejo is a privileged place for Puro-Sangue Lusitano horses, noble and intelligent animals with a proud posture and gentle temperament, bred in the fields with rich pastures close to the river Tagus. There is no better way of experiencing the culture of breeders, riders and everything Lusitano including the local history, culture, tradition, beautiful landscapes 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.
