Portuguese School of the Equestrian Art

Escola Portuguesa de Arte Equestre
Portuguese School of the Equestrian Art

Other

The Portuguese School of the Equestrian Art was the successor of the former Picaria Real, the riding school of the Portuguese Royal Court, which was closed in the 19th century. What has remained from those times is the special horsemanship and the tradition of bullfighting on horseback, with the horsemen still riding the same type of horses as were used in the 18th century, with the same saddles and costumes, resulting in an equestrian heritage that is unique in the world.

The horses belong to the special Lusitanian breed, raised at the Alter do Chão stud farm, founded in 1748 by the king Dom João V.
