Classical Dressage Clinics in Portugal
CLASSICAL DRESSAGE CLINICS OVERSEAS
Sylvia Loch has been teaching regularly in Portugal at Quinta do Archino, Ota, Alenquer since 2003. Find out more about Quinta do Archino, its location, horses and teaching programmes on www.quintadoarchino.net.
After foot surgery, Sylvia has had to drastically curtail teaching abroad for the future. She has temporarily given up her Courses in Portugal but hopes to resume them in due course (details when available).
However, having recently been honoured with the title of Instructor of Portugal from the Portuguese National School, she hopes to resume courses in the Iberian Peninsula sometime in 2012.
LISBON - 1 HOUR!
AT THE SILVER SANDS COAST - LUXURY APARTMENT TO RENT!
There has been very little touristic development on this relatively unknown part of Portugal's coast. There are acres of unexlored, Atlantic beach - known as the Silver Coast and building controls are extremely stringent with no high rise allowed and consequently no package tours.
Step outside the French window - we have a groundfloor apartment which is wheelchair-friendly - and you are in on the patio beside a large tiled Swimming Pool. This is shared by the those apartments immediately adjacent to ours but there is plenty of room and we have our own reserved space for sunloungers etc. The sun remains on 'our part' of the patio until early evening. All pools are maintained by the Praia del Rey consortium and kept to a high standard of cleanliness. In low season, it is not at all rare to have the pool completely to oneself.
THE SITTING ROOM
The sitting room with terrace and balconies is a large sunny room with fireplace and chimney stack being a central feature. Roughly 27 ft. square, the dining area lies off to one side with views throughout to both the pool area and the rural landscape beyond.
The massive pinetable sits up to l2 people and has stunning views to both north and west.
Sylvia will be happy to answer any question you may want to pose as regards the apartment. It has a lovely feel to it and is very spacious. For more photographs, please log onto
www.click4holidayhomes where you will find it under Portugal, the Silver Coast.
Otherwise - and even better - ring Sylvia on her mobile
IBERIAN HORSES FOR SALE
Having lived in Portugal for almost 10 years, founded the Lusitano Breed Society of Great Britian and having recently been recognised as an Instructor of Portugal by the Portuguese National School, Sylvia has built up a huge contact list over many years.
This has enabled her to access to many beautiful pure and partbred Lusitano horses for sale from respected breeders and trainers.
Most horses will be stallions, but for prospective owners wishing geldings, castration can be arranged before the horse leaves Portugal.
Please contact Sylvia through The Classical Riding Club if you need help or advice finding a horse
Transport to the UK is generally undertaken with John Parker International whom we cannot recommend more highly.
