Portugal - Kingdom of the Lusitano

Ride beautiful and well schooled Lusitano horses on this fantastic trail ride through the interior of the Alentejo region of Portugal.

The Alentejo is the hottest, driest region of inland Portugal. Without the rivers and streams that exist within this province, it would be a desert. Hot in summer, lush in spring and enduring subzero temperatures in winter, it is one of the least polluted areas in Europe.

The Alentejo is a very important region for horse breeding and this trail includes a visit to one of the famous Alter-Real studs to see the mares and foals.

You ride over a variety of terrain; through cork-oak plantations, wheat-fields, vineyards and groves of olive trees; through eucalyptus and pine forests; through meadows full of spring flowers.

Accommodation on the trail is at local guesthouses and hotels, some with swimming pools.

This fantastic spring ride on wonderful Lusitano horses will see you riding through fields filled with yellow, red and purple flowers.

My top tip:

Try to make time to read up a little about the history of the Lusitano horse and the Alter Real stud in Portugal, so that you can fully appreciate both your horse and the visit to the stud.
