We have three beautiful horses that are well-trained and friendly, ready to take you on a scenic ride through the estate. You can choose from different trails that suit your level of skill and interest, from easy to challenging, from forest to meadow.
Horse riding on the estate is a great way to explore the natural beauty and diversity of Palheiro Nature Estate. You will see stunning views of the ocean and the mountains, as well as the flora and fauna that inhabit the estate. You might even spot herons or buzzards along the way. Horse riding is a relaxing and fun activity that can improve your physical and mental well-being. Come and join us for a memorable horse riding adventure!
Our stables are located in between the tea house and the golf club. You can walk from the tea house along the forest path or drive to the club house and park and walk.
