"I really don't have the right words to express how much I enjoyed myself nor to say how much I learned. It truly was a perfect holiday! In short, my Morgado trip was every bit that was advertised, and more. I would surely recommend the adventure to anyone, serious or casual horseman, as well as anyone who is not riding, there are scores of things to do during the week."
WHAT IS CLASSICAL RIDING? It is the pursuit of riding following the teachings laid out by the classical Masters of Horsemanship. 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 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.
" I just want to thank you again for such a wonderful experience at Morgado. You were so very kind and helpful....we felt completely at home and welcome. It was a real privilege to be your exclusive guests and to have an intensive riding and watching experience with someone so talented as Rodrigo. He and the staff were such a pleasure to be around."
THE TRAINED STALLIONS of Morgado Lusitano are the heart of the center. Without the generous nature of these beautiful horses, it would be impossible for you to learn. Fortunately the horses here are happy and willing. This is due to the many years of careful training that they have received which allows them to be relaxed and supple, even while a novice rider hesitatingly asks for complex lateral movements. This facility has a large and varied selection of stallions, of all ages and abilities, which will be specifically matched to our clients goals.

"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!!!"
