The Dressage Programme consists of 1-hour lessons where various types of exercises are performed from the simplest to the most complex, focusing on the evolution of the rider and building his ability up. All of the horses are purebred Lusitanos and are trained to execute the most difficult exercises of the Grand Prix.

In order to make the most of the lessons, the riders should already be comfortable in walk, trotting, and cantering and have some experience in Dressage.

The riding instructor is highly experienced. He taught for many years at a well-known horse riding centre which is referred to in the Equestrian Tourism of Portugal. He is now collaborating exclusively with the Lusitano Riding Centre. Lessons take place in the indoor or outdoor arena with natural lighting.

There is a maximum of two riders per lesson, thus enabling us to fully focus on each detail and provide high-quality teaching.

Lusitanos Riding Centre dedicates much of its efforts to ensuring guests' satisfaction as its foremost aim.
