What you'll do
Enjoy a unique horse riding along the the beach, dunes and pine forest of the virgin area of Melides. The horseback ride begins with the pine and dune forest, where the client may have the opportunity to get to know the horse he is going on and trust him more when he gets to the beach, so he can be more relaxed. The ride along a paradisiac beach with more than 60km just for us. You will feel the proximity to the ocean and all the beauty of being in contact with the virgin nature of Portugal. After the beach we will pass close to the Melides sweat water lagoon where you will see a lot of different bird species. Don’t worry if you’ve never ridden before, I will be on hand to help, instruct and support you.. Horseback rides are carried out on walk, but in the case of customers with equestrian experience it will be possible to gallop at the end of the tour, if the guide verifies that the customer has enough experience to do so.

I am a young veterinary surgeon that shares his father's passion for horses and because of that I decided to exchange the vet's office for the paddocks. I now offer horseback riding through the natural landscape and the unspoilt coast of Alentejo. The horse riding in Melides have already more than 5 years of history and are the main activity of the region. Sometimes the ride can be done by other guide that is Tiago, who is a professional rider and recognized in Portugal as a person with a lot of knowledge in horses.
