    All about the Horse Riding in Algarve.

    Whether you are a beginner looking to ride for the first time, a rusty rider that needs a bit of a refresher, or an experienced rider in search of new and exciting trails, we have the perfect package for you! We offer a variety of riding classes and trails set in lush forests and even beachside rides that will surely be the highlight of your holiday in Portugal! 


    Riding can be done all year round, and each season is special in its own way. In the Spring you will be surrounded by wildflowers and beautiful vegetation. In the summer the tracks tend to be a bit more dry and hot, so we tend to ride in the early morning and late afternoon. the winter is a great time to ride as the rains cool down the surrounding lands and fresh greenery pops up at every turn! There is also a wealth of wildlife along the way, including a variety of birds you won’t find anywhere else, including flamingos and storks!
