Overview

You’ll be based at the lovely 17th century manor house, Quinta da Terça during your horse riding week on São Miguel island. Your  week begins with a one hour lesson followed by 2 half day rides in the beautiful countryside near the Quinta and up to the north coast of the island. Your 3 full day rides include packing up into horseboxes and heading to the twin lakes of Sete Cidades – one of the highlights of any visit to São Miguel.

The Quinta is an ideal base during your horse riding week as Quinta da Terça boasts their own stables, indoor schooling arena and pure and cross bred Lusitano horses suitable for all abilities.

This week is on bed and breakfast basis but we also include 5 lunches on riding days and 3 evening meals at the Quinta giving you the chance to try out some of the excellent local restaurants in nearby Ponta Delgada. As no trip to the Azores would be complete without a trip to see the whales and dolphins, we also include a 3 hour whale and dolphin watching trip out from Ponta Delgada, just 10 minutes drive away.

We can also provide an itinerary and price for non riding partners – just ask. Your horse riding week awaits in the Azores!
