Since the beginning in the team, I am the man who manages all topics around the horses, guides and riders. Whenever possible I guide our guest on trails. Our Ecolodge on Faial Island is the Azores Horse-Lovers Paradise. The place where Trail-Riders, Nature and Island-Enthusiasts from all over the world are coming together. Our Ecolodge is the home of our Lusitano and Cruzado Portuguese Horses. They are living the whole year outside on evergreen meadows. This is the place to enjoy country and island life. From the Ecolodge you have an endless view over the Atlantic Ocean, to gently sloping hills and to the 2,350 m high volcano of Pico. Quite close you see the neighbor islands of São Jorge and Graciosa. We provide 365 days of endless Island Horse Adventures.
