DISCOVER THE LUSITANO
We have prepared a masterclass that will introduce you to the specific traits, history and evolution of the Lusitano breed alongside with the rich Portuguese Equestrian Heritage.
THEORY & PRACTICE
Each day will begin with a theory class to review the fundamentals, followed by the riding lesson to put it in to practice, and then finished with a video-assisted debriefing.
REVIEW & PROGRESS
In your riding lessons we will review the fundamentals of classical riding, consolidate the exercises of medium level and introduce the basics of collection - all with professionally trained Lusitanos.
FEEDBACK WITH VIDEO
All lessons will be recorded on video and analyzed with each participant, allowing the riders to go through a self-analysis process and a deeper understanding of how to develop as a rider.
Start with a self-assessment. Check your daily progression with video analyses and you coach's feedback. Rate your progress with a final-evaluation and create your personal development plan.

You should fly to Lisbon Airport, located 7 km (4.3 mi) from the city center of Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. Keep in mind you can easily travel by subway or taxi from the airport to center city.
Official language is English – but it is part of your challenge during the time you will be with Lusitano World team at this tour to learn some Portuguese words and expressions.
Every rider is welcome, regardless of their riding level or experience.
However this program was designed to be of most benefit to riders that are intermediate level and delving deeper into the skill set necessary to enhance their horse and partnership. During the Riding Clinic we will explore in depth the influence of the riders position, seat and balance and its impact on the horse performance. We will work on how to master lateral exercises; the approach to flying changes and the introduction to collection exercises.
At Lusitano World Training Center you will have lessons with our experienced English-speaking coaches. On this specific tour the main coaches will be Fábio Bras, head coach at Lusitano World Training Center and Filipa Jácome, the founder of Lusitano World. You will also have the chance to see a presentation by our head rider João Sousa Faustino.
All your riding lessons will be recorded on video and delivered to you. This proven method allows you to increase exponentially your learning experience as you will not only enjoy all the learning process while you are on horseback, but will also have the chance to review it on a video, allowing a deeper self-awareness and understanding of what you need to improve to reach your goals as a rider.
Curious how it works? In the beginning of your Riding Intensive you will be invited to do your self-assessment. Each day you will have the chance to review the theory before riding; put it into practice during your riding lesson and then review your lesson on a video together with one of our coaches. By the end of your Riding Intensive you will submit a final-evaluation and define a working plan for you to clarify your goals andthe next steps to develop yourself as a rider.
«Self Evaluation directs us to prepare our next performance from understanding the past and today's experiences"
While at Lusitano World Training Center for the Riding Intensive, it is mandatory that you use proper riding equipment. We advise you to bring your own equipment so that you are comfortable - breeches, riding boots or chaps, gloves and of course a helmet!
We hope to inspire you by creating the best learning environment that will boost your knowledge and skills as a rider!
