What you'll do

I would love to offer you this experience with horses, where you can interact with them in a very relaxing, safe and friendly atmosphere, right next to the ocean! :)

First, I would like to show you around the stables and tell you a bit about the Portuguese riding tradition in Portugal, its origins and the current reality, as well as getting to know you and your horse riding experiences!

After this, you will be introduced to your horse, and start grooming him. Next, you will get a saddle, a bridle and protections for the legs of your horse, and finally he´s ready to be ridden!

You must wear a helmet, so safety first!! ;)
We can ride outside or inside of the arenas, depending on your level and the weather. :)

I will be there to support you and give explanations on how to do all of this! :)

There are Lusitano horses in the stables, a very beautiful native Portuguese breed. While I share some information about them, you can taste a regional Portuguese liquor, Ginjinha (for free!) together with a view to the ocean.
My goal is to provide you a nice, relaxing and enriching horse experience in our lovely stables, in the charming beach city of Cascais.
Other things to note
If possible bring comfortable cloths and closed shoes like sneakers or boots! ;)
Ideal for 2 to 4 people.

Meet your host, Francisca

I grew up surrounded by horses! This passion has grown over the years and when I became 16 years old, I started my education as a riding instructor. This job allowed me to work in different countries around Europe and helped me to grow up both on a personal and professional level.
Horses are my passion and I am happy to share this experience with you! :)

Where you'll be

On the way to Cascais, you will have the opportunity to see amazing old houses, the magestic ocean and the beauty of nature in this region. I strongly advise you to visit this city after our experience! When you arrive, I will show you the place, including stables, arenas and of course, the horses! :)

Francisca was absolutely wonderful and patient. She even gave us a ride back home. The horses were superb too. I wish I could do this every day.

Amazing experience for someone like me who never was riding on a horse. Francisca was very welcoming and patient, explained to me a lot about how to deal with horses, which I highly appreciated. Would like to come back anytime and highly recommend this experience when you are in the Lisbon area.

Great experience! It must be an unforgettable memory for me, not only because it was my first time riding horses, but because I was so touched by the way of communicating with horses. Francisca is a professional teacher teaching me how to get along with horses and communicate with them, although I was really bad at whistling😂
