MSA Equestrian Team is a project that was born in association with Fine Horses, a stud farm dedicated to purebred Lusitanos and sport Hanoverians.
This project blossomed a few km from Lisbon, in the lovely Quinta da Boiça.
Quinta da Boiça history and innovative dates way back to the 1980's - it started out as one of the first dairy farms in Portugal to have mechanical milking, but after around 40 years, the family business took a different turn in this antique farm, starting an equestrian project for horse lovers, horse riders and dressage athletes, with the help of their grandfather that once upon a time used to go to school on the back of his horse.
The open fields that where once farmed for corn gave way to pastures where the mares and foals graze today, and in which we do our trail rides.
You can explore the following activities with us:
- Dressage Lessons;
- Trail Rides;
- Customised Equestrian Adventures;
- Photography opportunities with your horse.
