Training & Coaching
In Coudelaria Henrique Abecasis we also provide dressage clinics and equestrian trails in Ribatejo and Alentejo. You may find out more on the trails at www.equestriantourismportugal.com.
Regarding the clinics, we aim at providing further knowledge and experience, improve the riding and expand the overall (horse and rider’s) comfort zone.
The main note is to stay open for communication and enhance the passion for the good grounds of riding and development of the horse physically and mentally up to the most demanding and technical exercises of dressage.
Head trainer - Tiago Abecasis
I have been coaching and advising on riding many riders from many nationalities and with different experiences. In my teaching I have used my own horses able to perform up the highest demanding exercises and helped many riders with their own horses.
