The Portuguese School of the Equestrian Art is the natural sequence
of what the Portuguese Royal Academy, extin-guished in the last century.
Even so, that horsemanship and tradition survived and they had a great
influence on the way of riding in Portugal.
On the other hand, and due to the continued practice of bullfighting on horseback, the samekind of horse, the same horsemanship, harness and costumes used in the XVIII century have been kept up till nowadays.
All this represents a unique cultural equestrian patrimony in the world.
The purpose of this School is not only to keep and divulge this patrimony, but also to the practice and teaching of the Art of riding, which has such a brilliant tradition in Portugal.
The stallions used by the School (EPAE) are Lusitanian horses from the ancient Royal Stud at Alter, founded by King João V in 1748.
