Horses are a childhood passion. From an early age, I have a daily contact with horses.Then I studied at the Royal Military College of Sorèze in France (in the Cavalry)
Since 1992 I live in Portugal and in 1999 I started the work and preparation and I do medieval tournaments to this day.
We have now started a Horse Riding project in the countryside in Silves, Algarve ... A unique experience you will never forget.

It was great! Olivier is an experienced guide and told us a lot about the region (in 4 languages!). It as an unique opportunity to visit the countryside and see a different and beautiful side of the region. I would totally recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get some tranquility and peace from the buzzing beaches. I am an experienced rider but my boyfriend was a beginner - Olivier chose the horses according to our level and made this a memorable experience for both of us. While my companion was more active, his horse was super chill and relaxed - even when we took some pictures with our drone! By the way, Olivier helped us to get amazing pictures 😉 Do not miss this tour!

Uma óptima experiência, Olivier é realmente do mundo dos cavalos. Ele preparou os nossos cavalos ajudou nos a montar e sempre indicou como devemos estar na relação com o cavalo durante o passeio. Recomendamos vivamente esta experiência e iremos voltar com certeza em breve.

The experience was amazing. The place was just beautiful. Very friendly people and nice horses also. We took a nice long walk between the orange feelds and we got a lot of information about the area. We had a lot of fun, if you like horses and nature you will love this! 🥰🥰🍀✨

Such a great experience, horse riding through the orange orchards of Silves, such a traditional experience. Met some local farmers who offered us some free oranges from their orchard, made friends with an eagle and learnt a lot about the history of Silves and the algarve. The horses were lovely, very trained. Also a great thing to do during lockdown as it was just me my brother and Paula!

Nous avons fait une belle promenade à la fraîche en compagnie d'Olivier et de ses beaux chevaux. L'accès au début de la balade se fait en voiture avec GPS, et Olivier et Paula donnent l'adresse exacte à y mettre et vous trouvez facilement. La route est déjà belle en elle-même dans l'arrière pays de l'Algarve, et la balade au milieu des orangers l'est encore plus. Olivier a su nous immerger dans l'ambiance de cette partie du Portugal totalement différente de celle de la côte. Étant peu expérimentées, Olivier a su nous mettre en confiance et nous sécuriser à toutes les étapes. Son lien avec ses animaux est indéniable et apporte un vrai plus à ce moment, en plus de son parcours unique qu'il partagera avec vous. Vous passerez sûrement un très beau moment en compagnie des chevaux et accessoirement d'Attila et Obélix, les deux autres vedettes du domaine, qui ont participé à l'expérience à leur manière 😊
