Horse Riding in Madeira Island
The horseback ridings are gaining some popularity in Madeira. Is an excellent way to meet some of the island’s least accessible rails. You can get the most diverse information about training and organizing rides in the Equestrian Association of Madeira at Quinta Vila Alpires, located in Funchal, in "Caminho dos Pretos".
There are some companies that provide this practice. Among them, the 'Escapada dos Cavaleiros'. An equestrian center located about 30 minutes from Funchal, in Jardim da Serra at 900 meters altitude.
Other place favourable to the practice of riding is Quinta de São Jorge Equestrian Center in Santo da Serra. This space consists of a riding arena and an area of 450 m2, with facilities for 21 horses and ponies and discovered riding stables with 3,500 m2. It has monitors and offers pleasant walks.
Another of the sites where you can enjoy horse riding is the Riding Centre of Porto Santo which is relatively small and is prepared for teaching. If you are already practicing this sport, you may benefit from some horseback riding through the mountains or the viewpoints at the end of the day, always accompanied by monitors.
