The Lusitanos Riding Centre is an equestrian sports activities centre in the western region in Lisbon area.
The Lusitano thoroughbred known as the "Puro Sangue Lusitano", is our heart, the passion which moves us around this magnificent creature. Its beauty, strength, character and courage are unique. Due to its physical and psychological characteristics, it was used to improve various European horse breeds and is considered to be the oldest saddle horse in the world.
Easy to handle and to teach, it is the ideal horse for every rider.
Brave and practical, it is able to do any exercise with facility.
It is compact and extremely flexible, for any riding style.
This is the reason why our centre is specialised in training this breed from novice to competition level.
Our instructor, João Batalha, has been teaching for more than 10 years in Portugal and other countries in Europe. After several years teaching in one of the most renowned school and riding holidays centre in Portugal, he now shares his time between teaching exclusively at Lusitanos Riding Centre and competing at national level in Portuguese Equitation and Working Equitation.
We offer various types of programmes, where you can learn all the art and technique, performing some of the toughest exercises on the Lusitano horses:
