Me and my girlfriend who never ride a horse came there. The staff is so friendly and welcoming and the horses are really nice. I was a bit disappointed by the fact that I was expected a ride for 1h in the forest to get to know the horse riding to my girlfriend who never did it. We had only... More

My 9yo daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful sunny hour's ride at these relaxed and friendly stables, the 5 whippet puppies were an added bonus! There's a lovely cafe there too. A great morning's adventure!

It is an amazing environment for children and adults alike. The problem is when you are back in London it is than difficult to find a place of the similar standards. My daughter goes to Miguel Alves school where Ines the teacher is the BEST you could ever ask for and all the children love her!!! I can not recommend... More

Booked a trail ride via our hotel. Rui Barrosa, his family, and staff were nice people and excellent hosts. English speaking staff made it easy. My daughter is an experienced rider while me, my wife, and son are novices. Horses were paired accordingly. The grounds are nice for a 1 hour casual ride but if you want to get off... More

Booked this for myself, husband and 13 year old son. Never been on horses before. Only booked an hour but we spent almost 2 hours there. The handlers were very knowledgeable and professional, taking us on the the most beautiful scenic horseback ride (on very well behaved horses), then back to the school for galloping lessons. We had a fantastic... More

Another holiday in Cascai looming (next week) and dissapointed that my last review of this amazing riding school was never published ! One of the highlights of getting back to Cascai for our daughter is this excellent family run school. Set amidst shady pines, our 10 year old loved every minute of her time spent here, which happened to be... More

This is one of the best kept secrets in Cascais. Wonderful stables in a wooded area close to Guincho beach in the most exclusive neighborhood of Cascais. Every now and then with international jump shows. Restaurant on premise. Possibility to ride horses and a number of riding schools that offer all sorts of lessons. Our experience with the riding school... More
