Your hosts Kristin Dolke and Pedro Neves believe that a well-ridden and trained horse is the key to an enjoyable ride. The art of classical dressage gives their team of fabulous Lusitanos the gymnastic workout to develop their muscles to be strong, reliable and friendly partners.
Pedro Neves is a professional rider and trainer who offers a high standard of classical dressage and working equitation tuition. At Quinta dos Pinheiros you will have the chance to benefit from his knowledge and that of his professional team, as well as experiencing some genuine Portuguese horse culture. Lessons can be tailored for all levels of rider as well, from the beginner to the experienced competitive equestrian. You will be taught by Pedro or one of his professional riders for your lessons and these are always private one-to-one.
The quinta has fantastic facilities with both an indoor and outdoor school (with Ebb & Flow surface) and working equitation obstacles. The horses really are something special, three having performed in 'The Pride of Portugal' display at Olympia in 2016. All meals, snacks and drinks are included (the local wine is delicious!), as are transfers from the nearby station with an easy, direct connection to Lisbon.
The wonderful facilities and well-schooled Lusitano horses of Quinta dos Pinheiros are waiting for you.
