Horse riding opportunities with 90 minutes of Lisbon ?

Are there any high quality riding schools in or near Lisbon? Trail riding or coached arena riding would be great. I ride in Australia, but always benefit from riding overseas under an experienced rider/ coach . Thanks

Hi,

Have a look at this link:

www.quintadamarinhahipico.com/schools.php

I understand from a contact on another forum that these schools are located in the area of Cascais/Guinho which is +- 45 minutes by car from Lisbon..

You have one in Lisboa at Campo Grande, metro station Campo Grande (Green or Yellow line). The website is only in portuguese "Sociedade Hípica Portuguesa - Hipódromo do Campo Grande". Try to contact Ângela Nunes - a.nunes@sociedadehipica.pt, to get some info for private classes, on the website they only have the regular classes schedules.

Hi,

In Lisbon there is a jockey club in Campo Grande: www.sociedadehipica.pt/instalacoes.html.

In Sintra, Estoril and Cascais there are a few, also. And there is a nice rental cottage with horses in Sintra that you can check at http://www.sintracottage.com. Have some nice rides!
