The Lusitano Riding centre is a fairly new centre in Portugal which has been operating for over 2 years and just 40 minutes from Lisbon. Situated in a typical old Portuguese village surrounded by vineyards, stunning landscapes with beautiful Montejunto mountain views. At the centre you will ride Lusitano horses, well trained in Dressage and Working Equitation. Classical Dressage needs no introduction and Working Equitation is now becoming very popular in Australia.
Working Equitation aims to show off and utilise the working capabilities of the Luistano horse and competitors have to compete a gymkhana type event as well as a dressage test. In this event competitors have to negotiate obstacles such as bridges, gates and jumps. At high levels they may have to work with cattle or split a cow from the herd. Working Equitation lessons are available during the spring/summer whereas classical dressage lessons are available all year round.
