Horseback Riding Tours

Horseback Riding Tours

Discover the region of Setubal on the back of a first class Lusitano horse.

A strong equestrian culture has existed in Portugal for centuries.

On the Setubal region, you can ride across old paths through the landscape, through vast valleys to the Atlantic shore with rocks and dunes, inviting for a refreshing canter.

The ride takes you along the coast where you’ll find long stretches on the wide-open beaches. Gallops on the beach almost desert, is one of the highlights of the trail.

The horses rest while you can enjoy a swim in a sea of turquoise waters before a lovely picnic lunch.

The ride takes you to small fishing villages, to the famous Lagoon of Melides, a place of rare silence and tranquillity, and you can also ride inland while enjoying many canter through eucalyptus and pine forests.

There are different alternatives, scenarios to have the best Horseback Riding Tours, of your life.

Horses

You will be riding pure-bred and part-bred Lusitano Horses. You can look forward to getting a mount which is not only well-tempered and of a docile character but who will allow you to explore the great feeling of riding a well-trained horse.

The saddles that you will be using are mostly Portuguese Army saddles covered with sheep skin which are very comfortable and well-suited for the purpose of long distance rides.

English style bridles are used.
