We are a family business working on the border between Spain and Portugal. We have always had horses. Most of the current ones are the descendants of our family's horses, so they too are like family to us. For the long tours, we use the young ones, well behaved and of course very beautiful! I am your main tour guide and also an archaeologist, so I will explain to you every historical item we see in our routes (there will be plenty!). Looking forward to meeting you!

Tour highlights

Ride Through Virgin Landscapes
The Taejo International Park is the only international natural park of Europe, with few villages and lots of beautiful, unoccupied land
See Marvão, Ammaia and Castelo de Vide
Our region is full of history. We will visit 5,000 year-old dolmens, a Roman city and beautiful medieval villages, extraordinarily preserved in time!

    My girlfriend and I had an amazing time during our vacation. Sara and her family were incredibly welcoming and skilled, and we were matched perfectly with our horses. As a novice rider, this experience left me eager to return. The ride offered stunning views of the scenery, and wildlife with Sara providing knowledgeable guidance throughout. If you're in the area, I highly recommend stopping by - you won't be let down ❤️

    about provider
    Sara and her family gave us the most unforgettable tour of Portugal. This was our last adventure after traveling through various regions of Portugal (Porto-Douro-Madeira-Alentejo) and the tour was truly enchanting. The horseback ride was challenging, but the well-trained and well-cared-for horses gave us, my husband, and our 11-year-old son the confidence to enjoy the experience. Since returning to the USA, we can't stop talking about it. The entire experience, from start to finish, was breathtaking and a definite must for anyone exploring Alentejo! We can't wait to return!
