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.

Rides

You can enjoy one day ride or do a one week itinerary with all included, like accommodations on typical country houses and inns and meals with typical Portuguese food.

José Mourinho HometownSetubal honours “The Special One”.

Former -Real Madrid (now on Chelsea ) coach Jose Mourinho , who completed the 50th birthday in January 26th , is to get a street or an avenue in his Hometown Setubal named after him in honour of his Fantastic and Unique sporting achievements.

José Mourinho’s hometown, Setúbal city , wants to pay a tribute to the former Real Madrid manager and coach, by naming a street after him to coincide with his 50th birthday.

The exact street or avenue has not yet been chosen but the town hall’s general assembly voted unanimously to approve the naming.

The people at Setúbal and all the Portuguese in Portugal and all around the world, have no doubt that Mourinho deserves a statue in his town because he is the who makes it known worldwide Setubal. Let us wait to see if such exist.

Besides this possible honour, the town is also putting on an exhibition about the life of its most famous son. It is due to open on 23rd March at the Galeria Municipal 11 on Avenida Luísa Todi, with the coach expected to attend the inauguration.

One of the main attractions at the exhibition will be replicas of the main trophies win by Mou during his career. Also on display will be items of clothing worn by the coach on the touch-line, including the coat he had on when Porto famously defeated Manchester United in the 2003-04 

round of 16.

The Setubal town hall said it had made the decision because of Mourinho’s “extraordinary role in international sport”, but Portugal Dream Coast think and bet ,many years ago he would revolutionize the Football as a Sport, with a  new way and approach to prepare the teams, re-structuring of Clubs and Teams , methodology to train, and some other aspects. We continue thinking José Mourinho will be the Best Coach in the World ever (today he his considered the third).

He is, in all fairness, one of the coaches in the world with the most prestige and qualification.

Mourinho, the self-styled “Special One“, is undoubtedly; the most successful ever Portuguese coach, and we could say with no doubts change the Football in many aspects.

He  celebrate wins  league titles in Four different Countries with Porto (2), Chelsea (2) , Inter (2)  and Real Madrid (1), and has led  Two teams (FCPorto and Internazionale de Milano)  to Two Champions League trophies, 1 UEFA Cup, Cup and Supercup of Portugal, Spain, Italy and England Cups!!!
