Our Horses are family

Horses are more like us than we imagine. They are endowed with a sensitivity that teaches us a lot about our own emotions when we are with them. They have an associative memory and so they prefer that we be true and pure, in gestures and intentions, so that they can read us clearly with no margin for a second interpretation.

These characteristics make them the perfect companion for rides, leisure moments or self-knowledge transformational experiences.

Herdade da Matinha currently has 10 horses of Puro Sangue Lusitano, Cruzado Portugês and Halflinger breeds. For us they are family and are treated as such.

Coordination and Offering

Our Horse Riding Center is coordinated by Ricardina Menezes. Sport Psychology graduate, her relationship with horses goes along way back. At 4 years old, she stared at a horse for the first time. Since then she has never left them.

Ricardina reconciles her academic training with her vast experience with horses and is responsible for outings with children and adults of all levels of experience.

Additionally we develop training and coaching actions with the precious help of these noble and beautiful animals. We work on concepts such as Leadership, Coordination and Teamwork, Emotional Intelligence and Trust of individuals and teams.
