About Pinetrees Riding Centre


Anyone wishing to have a horse riding in the Algarve will not find a better place than Pinetrees Riding Centre. Ideally situated in the Golden Triangle, between Vale do Lobo, Quinta do Lago and Almancil, and only 20 minutes drive from Faro airport. It offers all that is needed for local residents or as a horse riding holiday, whether staying en famille at Pinetrees or in one of the many quality hotels, villas and apartments in the local area.

Pinetrees Riding Centre provides expert classical tuition for riders from 4 years old to 70, and all abilities, from riding lessons for novices on quiet horses and ponies to the more advanced rider training on beautiful well schooled Lusitanos.

Riding clothes are supplied so you will ride safely, be more comfortable and certainly look the part!

The Centre offers riding out in the pinewoods, beside the salt flats and the beach area in the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve or through the orange groves of the Ludo Valley, perhaps stopping for a picnic en route. The Experience is an ideal riding experience on holiday for those without much practice.

For children, there are five lovely ponies for pony rides and nature walks through the pinewoods adjacent to the centre or the chance to spend the day and make friends with other children at Pony Club, giving parents the chance to relax and do their own thing for a few hours.

The Centre is an English run riding school with a friendly, professional international team able to speak half a dozen European languages.
So whether you want to develop your riding skills, improve your stable management or just ride out through the countryside, we will take care of you.

Happy Riding



I started Pinetrees in 1985, at our family villa were we have lived since 1972. All my life I have been involved with tourism and horses so this career was a natural move for me.

My principal professional training was at the prestigious Talland School of Equitation where I gained the British Horse Society Intermediate Teaching Certificate.
