By focusing on the key pillars of classical dressage, our students gradually work our experienced schoolmasters to perfection in straightness, contact, suppleness, collection and impulsion

After the stress inflicted by a global pandemic, there is no better time to ride more, learn new things, and enjoy horses, dressage and life set against a backdrop of sea, sand and sunshine to help recharge your body and soul.

Moderate riding program (B):

You have one riding lesson per day in the morning or in the afternoon, allowing you the time to discover and enjoy the surrounding Portuguese nature and culture on offer. A trip to Lisbon or the beach from Escola de Equitaçao de Alcainça only takes 30 minutes…


Non-rider program

For the accompanying non-riders or if you want to take a day off riding.
Non-riders are also welcome and day trips can be organised to various places such as Lisbon, Sintra and the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art.

The three options can be mixed as desired, but they have to be pre-booked.

You can arrive and depart on any day and stay for as long as you like. However, for a more fulfilling experience, we do recommend a stay of at least three nights.
