Horse riding, a unique way to explore the area of Marvão, with its spectacular landscapes. There is the possibility to combine the therapeutic properties of horse riding with the thrill of adventure. No prior knowledge of horse riding is required to enjoy these deeply satisfying and healthy adventure programs, where with the organization of Caballos Marvão, whether a solo participant or the whole family, there is a program suited to you.
One of our many exciting trails is the ‘smugglers route’ which was in the past used to illegally transport goods across the border of Portugal and Spain undetected. With this wonderful trail, not only will you have the rare opportunity to re-live a bit of history, but also to explore Valencia de Alcántara and San Pedro de los Majarretes, in Spain.
Other trails run through the awe inspiring landscapes of Cabeçudos Marvanenses, Santo António das Areias, Pitaranha, Galegos and Beirã.
Dr. Jose Silva
The horse trails have been organized by Dr. Jose Silva, a passionate lover of horse riding and experienced advocate of hippo therapy. He and the rest of the Caballos Marvão team teach a unique way to enjoy the soothing sound of hooves, the rhythmic motion of the horse or even to discover the excitement of galloping. All this, while breathing the pure air of a region still unknown to pollution.
