The methods are time honored and available to us through books encompassing more 2000  years of riding.  Classical horsemanship is the ultimate goal for many riders.  In the United States a similar style of riding  is often seen in dressage shows, and is demonstrated in 3rd and 4th level tests.  But true Classical riding goes far beyond just showing in competition.  The understanding and performance of Classical Dressage requires a great deal of focus and study, and it is important to ride a well trained horse so you can learn to harmonize Horse Vacation horse riding arena with it.  With proper instruction during our horse riding vacations, riders can bring out the best in their mounts, and the mounts can bring out the best in their riders!  At Morgado Lusitano we use the methods known as "The Art of Marialva" for our horse and rider training and we also demonstrate these arts for you and then teach you to perform them yourself as part our client services.

"My experience at Morgado was to put it quite simply.... my best travel experience to date. I would go back there in a minute. The staff at Morgado were amazing. They made us feel right at home like part of the extended family. The riding experience was everything I had anticipated and then some. I was able to ride upper level movements never attempted before such as tempis, piaffe and passage. I was like a dream come true!!!"
