Horse Riding

Apolo

The Quinta da Fé is a unique guest-house because of its horses. We have the chance of having, at disposal, a real riding school, that will allow you to enjoy the ravishing view of horses from your window. Our horses and ponies are exclusively Portuguese breeds: we have pure Lusitanos, as well as Garranos, ponies from the north of Portugal. Our horses are really nice and well-educated, and can suit total beginners as well as experienced riders, who will appreciate their level of dressage.

Our facilities are also perfectly designed for horse riding, with an outdoor sand arena (20×40 meters), a “spring garden”, ten boxes, ten paddocks, and various outside trails among the vineyards and the fruit trees.

We offer you different types of horse-related activities:

– all year long lessons, from the initiation to intensive clinics, private or in small groups, covering all disciplines

– touristic rides

– boarding

Boarding are short or long period, and can be only in box, both box and paddock (usually with the “working boarding” formula, with our trainer working your horse 5 hours a week at the minimum, or with the “au pair boarding”, whith your horse taking part in the school’s lessons)

You can come with or without your own horse, we assure you we will do our best to make your horse experience something unique.

Every horse activity is supervised by our qualified french instructor (international qualification level 2 – IEGQ), note that we are not renting horses without supervision, in order to guarantee you as much pleasure as security!
