Dear Friends, join us on a guided visit to the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art!

 Dear Friends,


The AFDP has the pleasure to invite you to a visit (in English) to the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art located in Calçada da Ajuda.


The EPAE represents the sequence to what was formerly the Royal Riding School, the equestrian academy of the Portuguese court that was closed down in the 19th century and housed in the Royal Stables of Belém, currently the National Coach Museum.


Nowadays it pursues the simultaneous objective of both teaching and raising the profile and the practices of the traditional Portuguese Equestrian Art. The Lusitanian horses used in the School are bred by the Alter stud farm.


We will have the opportunity of watching a training session and two performances.


Date: April, 4th, 10.30 a.m. (Meeting at 10.15 a.m.)

Address /Meeting point: Henrique Calado Riding Ring – Next to Calçada da Ajuda 23

Duration: 2h30

Parking: only if available nearby

RSVP until April 2nd to AFDP (adcdp@mail.telepac.pt; Tel.: 213 952 936) 


We hope to see you there!
