A Stallion in Portugal

My dream holiday!!!

Emily Carter Mitchell ~ Nature & Wildlife Photography

There’s a place in the countryside of Portugal on the outskirts of Lisbon where one can go to learn the art of classical Dressage. Morgado Lusitano is located at Quinta de Portela, an elegant country estate built in 1775 and established as an equestrian center in 2005. Built by the Marquis of Castelo Melhor, Morgado Lusitano now offers all the modern conveniences in a historical setting.

With a mountain top view of the valley below with the Tagus River, one feels like nobility when walking around the estate.

Morgado Lusitano offers equestrian holidays as an intensive training program with two lessons a day on highly trained Lusitano Stallions. While out of the saddle, riders are treated to freshly prepared full course meals, which can be enjoyed al fresco when the weather is pleasing.

And if it gets a bit warm in the afternoon, a cool pool stands invitingly.
