Riding

RIDING LEVEL: equitation au portugal
Riders should be balanced and independent at walk, trot and canter, and it is an advantage to know the basic lateral movements such as shoulder-in and half-pass. Although the school horses are all very well trained, calm and safe, it is mandatory to wear a helmet.

GROUPS:
Following an assessment, riders are divided into groups of 1-4 according to their riding ability and experience, in order to ensure every student receives proper individual attention from the instructor.

LESSONS:
The lessons take as long as the rider needs to achieve the particular goal for the lesson. In general, the group lessons are about 90 minutes long, with the individual lessons a bit shorter. Riders are welcome to assist in grooming, tacking up and untacking the horses although there are grooms to prepare and assist if you are unfamiliar with the process.

INSTRUCTORS: 
Georges is the technical director. He trained with the great Portuguese master Nuno Oliveira, as well as with José Athayde, founder and master of the Portuguese school of equestrian art.
Mario is an accomplished rider, who has worked and trained with many Lusitano breeders, as well as Olympic dressage riders.
Additional instructors are also available. Dressage students also come for a long time and sometimes, the more experienced of them, can give lessons.
The instructors speak Portuguese, Spanish and English.
