*This trip is always sells out! Sign up soon so you won’t be disappointed. Deposits made before August 1 receive a discount! We keep the trip intimate so we can enjoy being invited to the private Casitas and homes of the finest breeders.
Nowhere else can you immerse yourself in horse culture such as this, and with Dominique as your guide you will be privy to a very personal tour that revisits his time there as a student. The Barbiers have cultivated a trip that delights all of the senses and touches upon the cornerstones of Portuguese culture; from the religious icons and historical monuments, to the fabulous food and wine, the picturesque coastline, and soulful Fado music.
This year we are adding three days in Porto before heading to Golegã, and finishing the tour with a very special performance in Lisbon by the Royal School of Equestrian Art, Le Cadre Noir, and La Escuela Real Andaluza de Arte Ecuestre, making for 16 days of immersing ourselves in the splendor that Portugal has to offer.
If you cannot get away for the entire trip, shorter trip options are available, including the option to join us at the tail end for the Portuguese School Performance in Lisbon. Email email@example.com to make your arrangements. November 3-18, 2019.
