Our Riding School
We have two main arenas – both covered. One smaller Baroque riding hall in the classic Portuguese style and a larger arena for more sport oriented riders and larger groups. Our small school has the pillars – yes we can teach you how to use the pillars! – and in addition we can arrange trail riding on local estancias.
We have horses for every level of rider from the complete beginner to Grand Prix and a great kid’s program too.

FOR ADULTS & CHILDREN
In addition to our riding vacations and packages we offer regular lessons by the hour to riders and families. Please contact us for details.
PHYSICAL DISABILITIES: We offer weekly sessions of therapeutic riding for physically and intellectually challenged children and adults.
AUTISM: We run a special needs program here at our center that includes the highly effective Horse Boy Method, for children with autism, ADD, ADHD and other neuro-sensory conditions. We have been trained by Rupert Isaacson and Iliane Lorenz of Horse Boy directly and very much enjoy this way of building the brain and gaining communication.
We also host Horse Boy Method training workshops here with Rupert Isaacson several times a year. Click here – www.horseboyworld.com – to find out more.
