Horses in Training


Make your dream goals come true

At Quinta da Varzea we are happy to welcome horses in training for shorter or longer periods. Whether it's to start a horse under saddle and educate him to your desired level within the principles of Traditional Classic Portuguese Riding, improve certain exercises or stabilise training-goals we can assist you and your horse in progressing. Our centre offers:

  • Spacious stables with good climate
  • Turn-out paddocks for all horses
  • Synthetic ground (silica w/fibres)
  • High quality hay and feeding

We offer a 140 acre farm where you're horse will be able to hack out as well as we are willing to compete and show your horse at faires and competitions within dressage.

All horses have dentistry-check-up every six months and will be dewormed based on manure-test by our Veterinary partner Dr. Joao Crespo. All horses follow a 6-week shoeing/ferrier period.

We adapt all training and exercise to the individual horse firstly and to the wishes and goals secondly. We only accept horses to start work under saddle for a minimum of a three-months period.

All types and levels of horses are accepted at QDV for training and we reserve the right to advise for chiropractic-treatments, well-fitted saddle for individual horse or other treatments to benefit the best performance of the horse.

At QDV the wellfare of all horses comes first.
