Instructor Pedro Teixeira Farto
Pedro Teixeira Farto is a real horse man, he loves horses. Raised in Ribatejo, the birthplace of the Lusitano, he learned about country life and horses from his grandfather. He developed his skills in multiple disciplines, from dressage to working equitation. To get even better, he went into training with several renowned professionals including Jorge Sousa, Daniel Pinto, Juan Muñoz Dias, Coby van Baalen, José Paulo Vidigal and Eddy de Wolff van Westerrode. Pedro currently works as manager and head trainer at Quinta do Falcao Riding Center where he trains about 20 horses, mainly for dressage and Working Equitation. He also gives clinics and lessons in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Finland, Sweden and Switzerland
There are 20 horses that have stables with walk-outs to paddocks, so they can choose where they want to be. They are trained both for lessons and for wonderful outdoor rides. There are Lusitano horses for beginners and advanced riders. They know dressage and the techniques of working equitation and classical Portuguese horsemanship. The horses are ridden very lightly with double reins (you get used to them very quickly) but with very light contact. Almost everything is indicated with the seat and leg aids. Lusitanos are very willing to work, sensitive, agile and above all they have big hearts.
An agricultural estate, a farm rustic with beautiful Portuguese architecture. The estate is the result of the dedication and work of three generations of a traditional Ribatejo family that has always dedicated itself to agricultural activities and linked with that all the attention to the Portuguese Lusitano horses. It has a large yard where there are also chickens, goats, a tame cow and a donkey. The estate dates back to the late 19th century and bears the name of the Falcao Family. Rustically located and with typical Portuguese architecture, it has everything for a great riding holiday experience. Across the road, there is also land with a museum with authentic garments, carriages and posters and here is also the swimming pool and a chapel where you can even get married. The atmosphere is warm and soon you are part of the family.
During this wonderful horse holiday, you will also receive two days of social media training. These special weeks are for smaller groups only so we can work together with full attention.
