We are a small family run horsefarm with four guest houses, that is mainly focus on horse tourism.
We have 8 horses that are part of our family, so we try to keep them in the most natural and respectful way. They are kept in a herd, always outside, they are barefoot, we follow natural horsemanship principals but also they are all trained in classical dressage ( Ecole de Légèreté) and we do lots of trail riding. Our main goal is to keep horses happy and healthy.
We are located 200m from the ocean, in a little fisherman village ( Cabo Sardão) in SW Portugal. The Rota Vicentina Fisherman trail pass right by us it was voted one of the most beautiful hiking rotes in Europe.
We like that volunteers stay a minimum of 2 months, we feel that you will get more out of the experience.
