The riding itinerary in central Portugal has been carefully designed to give you the best equestrian, cultural and natural experiences the region has to offer. Riding here will introduce you to the heart of Portuguese culture, so steeped in agricultural traditions. You start from a competitive Lusitano stud farm and stop at towns and farm guesthouses along the way to Golegã, “the capital of the horse,” and home to the great national equestrian festivals. In November, the itinerary includes a visit to this fair at the end of your stay. Along the way you will enjoy the hospitality of farm guesthouses, and the property of Manuel Veiga, whose stud farm produced one of the four basic Lusitano lineages. Your mounts are pure Lusitanos and your hosts knowledgeable and friendly as they guide you through this tour highlighting the wonderful traditions and riding in Portugal. For a stay with more basic accommodations and a slightly altered itinerary, you can consider the standard program.
