Turene går i et av Portugals minst befolkede områder, Alentejo, med et mildt klima hele året og med milevis av sanddekte veier. Her møter du lokalbefolkningen i de små byene langs veien og opplever et Portugal der tiden har stått stille og som knapt er påvirket av turistenes inntog. Det er veldig lite trafikkerte veier som må krysses i løpet av uken du er på tur.

Du rir blant korketræ, rismarker, oliventrær og gjennom eukalyptus og furuskog. På noen av turene er det ridning i soloppgangen på stranden. Du overnatter på koselige gjesthus eller hoteller, hvor noen har svømmebasseng.

Både hestene og rytterne blir tatt godt vare på. Alt er veldig godt organisert. Guiden Miguel bidrar godt for at du skal ha en minnerik ferie. Han er sosial, humoristisk og har mange gode historier å fortelle.

Du rir på vakre og velridde Lusitanohester eller Lusitanokryssninger. Lusitanoene er kjent for sin disiplin og dressur ferdigheter. Med sitt rolige gemytt og ”velvillige natur” er de også godt egnet som turhester. Mankehøyden er 150–165 cm. Salene er komfortable, portugisiske militær saler som er dekket med saueskinn.

Her er det mulighet for flere galopper. Gode strekninger også i skritt hvor du kan nyte naturen., også på stranden. Veiene du rir på er som regel så brede at det går fint å gå 2 i bredden så kan få pratet med hverandre.

Du må være trygg i alle gangarter og være i form til å ri lange galopper i den portugisiske varmen!

Etter en deilig frokost blir alle hentet og kjørt til der hvor hestene står. Lunsjene er ute i det fri med deilig grillmat av kjøtt, fisk eller fugl hvor alt er saftig og godt. Salat, oliven og brød, etterfulgt av fersk frukt eller melon. Vin, alkoholfri drikke og vann er inkludert til lunsjen. Middager er enten på lokale restauranter eller hvor overnattingen er og dere får smake gode, tradisjonelle portugisiske retter.

Alentejokystrittet og Delfinrittet går i området sør for Lisboa. Lusitanorittet går mer inn i landet, litt nordøst for Lisboa (se egen beskrivelse for denne turen.

Alentejokyst rittet:

Her er det to turer hvor den ene går fra nord til sør og den andre fra sør til nord. Det går 2 turer på våren og 2 på høsten. Her rir du lange strekninger langs kysten og også på stranden. Galopperer gjennom eukalyptus og pinjeskoger og ri opp mot Cercalbergene. Du rir også mot den vakre St Andre lagunene. Det blir også mulighet til å bade i havet.

Delfin rittet:

Dette er en sirkulær tur gjennom småkuppert landskap med furuskog og områder med korketrær mellom Grândola, Santiago do Cacém og kysten ved Santa Andre lagunen. En av dagene vil det være et morgenritt med flere galopper på stranden. Hvis været tillater det vil det også være en ettermiddag med en deilig båttur i Sado Estuariet hvor det er veldig stor sjanse for å se delfiner.

Det er også mulighet for en tur kalt ”Flaskeneserittet” (etter Bottlenose delfinene som du kan se på båtturen. Du rir omtrent samme tur som for delfinrittet, men det er her en litt enklere overnatting for noen av nettene,

Hestene er vakre og rolige Lusitanohester eller Lusitano krysninger. De er godt skolerte og kjekke å ri. De går godt frem og er lett å få i samlet galopp. Du må beherske alle gangarter ute i naturen og være i form til noen lange galopper i varmen i den portugisiske solen!

Settle into your room at Hotel Vila Park www.vilapark.com and later meet your guide at dinner and learn all about the trail.

Please note that it is sometimes necessary to substitute riding routes and use other hotels of similar or greater standard, but always with your best interests at heart. Also note that the beach ride is on the first morning. This is a favourite ride for both horses and riders but you need to be confident to let your horse gallop without having had much chance to get to know him beforehand.
