    Portugal is bordered to the west and south by the Atlantic Ocean, to the north and east by its only neighbor: Spain. The territory of Portugal also includes the autonomous regions of Madeira of the Azores. The Azores are located in the Atlantic Ocean.
    The country is located at the end of Western Europe, the Portuguese territory is rectangular in shape 160 km wide on average and 560 km long.
    Portugal has low peaks (such as the Serra da Estrela, the second highest mountain range in the country, which barely reaches 2000 m) but the relief is more mountainous, since only a third is less than 200 m, cut into deep valleys; this relief has always made travel difficult, easier on horseback !
    Portugal is the perfect setting for horseback riding and horse trips with its varied terrain and wonderful climate allowing you to enjoy holidays all year round. It is a beautiful country full of forests, rivers and lush valleys in the center and north, while to the south you will find a magnificent coastline of beaches, cliffs and coves. In the Alentejo region you will find vast groves of olive trees, oranges, cork and vines. Spring is a particularly scenic time of year to visit when flowers bloom and cover the hills. You won't find a shortage of traditional villages all over the country as well as bustling towns, historical treasures and World Heritage sites.
    Portugal has a special bond with the horse, especially with the wonderful Lusitanian: a horse bred for its gentle nature and for its aptitude for classical dressage. The Lusitanian horse has been bred and developed for hundreds of years, a mixture of Arabian and English thoroughbred with its agile and graceful movements.
    All Portuguese cities have their own festivals throughout the year celebrating their traditions, some of which have been around for many centuries. With lavish costumes, parades, bustling fairs, street theaters, music and dance, delicious food and wine, flower festivals, street parades.
