Therapeutic Riding
Contributing positively for the well-being of people with disabilities.

Therapeutic riding provides benefits in the areas of health, education, leisure and recreation for individuals with special needs.

"We provide therapeutic horseback riding for children and adults that promote and enrich their physical, developmental, psychological and social well-being."

Therapeutic riding is recommended for various types of disabilities, impairments and physical and psychological rehabilitation as well as for those who need to improve their motor, cognitive and psychosocial.

This type of riding for therapeutic purposes is a dynamic and stimulating intervention in a natural environment.

An easy and fun challenge, with significant results in the welfare of the rider.

The movement of the horse, moving the rider's body in a rhythmic and similar to a human gait, contributes to improve flexibility, balance and muscle strength of the practitioner.

We offer the ability to work with small groups and we are open to collaboration with schools and institutions.

For cases where there is a need, we have the collaboration of professional physiotherapists.

Besides therapeutic benefits, horseback riding also offer opportunities for recreation and enjoying the outdoors in the beautiful Alentejo countryside.
