" By a warm wellcome you fell at home at once. Susanna is not only friendly, she is engaged every time to do all the best to her guest. The same does João Batalha. He is a perfect teacher, very good at explaining what to do and brings you foreward. Not to forget the wunderfull horses, very good trained to highest levels. I hope to get back as soon as possible!

" From the moment I arrived the welcome and hospitality was second to none. Susana is the ultimate host, her cooking is fantastic and beautiful meals served every day. Nothing is too much trouble and by the end of the week I felt like part of the family. Jo^ao is a true horseman the horses are Grand Prix level but are gentle enough to allow children to ride them safely. The lessons were brilliant and I learnt a lot. The horses are so well looked after and have THE very best of care. The love Susana and Joao have for them is obvious from the start. I will definately be back . I should also mention the beautiful accomodation and the farm. The pool area is tranquil set in beautiful gardens with plum trees, figs, almonds etc etc. Lisbon is 40 minutes away with lots to see and do, if you can tear yourself away from the riding centre.

"This center is really an experience. Everything is so well organised, horses trained the highest level and the surroundings are just amazing. Not to mention the owners, Joao and Susana, who are the most welcoming people. Warmly recommend for anyone who is looking for a real Lusitano experience and to improve their riding skills with a teacher who is truly committed to his work."
