Lisbon is within easy access of many regional UK airports, if you have any problems finding flights just ask and we'll try to help you. You will stay in a traditional Portuguese hotel with en suite bedrooms and a swimming pool.
This afternoon you will start your riding programme with an assessment, followed by a lesson (the stables are right next door to the hotel). Your Portuguese riding instructor is able to teach basic flat to advanced dressage lessons, for the more experienced riders show jumping and cross country is available. During your lessons you will enjoy learning how these amazing Lusitano horses move.
Breakfast is included in the price and will be served in your hotel. You are able to purchase lunches directly at a number of local recommended restaurants in the area. Evening meals will be served in local restaurants and are included in the price.
After breakfast you have a full day of riding to look forward to. The riding programme is completely flexible and will be tailor made to suit you. Depending on your preference you can have a lesson in the morning followed by hack out in the afternoon, or a second lesson. Those who just want to enjoy the local scenery can hack in the morning and afternoon, with a break for lunch in the middle.
The hacking routes vary. You will ride through eucalyptus, pine and cork trees, past corn fields and along the Tejo and Zezere rivers. For the more experienced riders a longer route will be offered where you will hack to Constância, a local historical village where you will stop for coffee.
