In September i was a guest at Quinta do Falcão. This Equestrian venue aimes at all levels of riders, from those who are just starting to practice, to the most experienced. Classes will be carried out in various disciplines, such as Dressage , Working Equitation, Classical Portuguese Riding, or simply relax on a pleasant hack through the countryside and by the river.
At the day I recorded this podcast, I already had one dressage lesson and for the first time in my life i experienced a working equation lesson. On a Portuguese saddle, riding with one hand, which was incredible cool and fun. Together with some other guests from Germany, Sweden and Holland we had a fantastic day and dinner and very late at night there was time to record this interview. So imagine the setting, at 11 at night, sitting on a terras outside in a warm September night in Portugal.
And there i am having an interview with Rui Salvador, the owner of the farm and one of the first figures in Panorama dos Cavaleiros, with an unique passion for what he does and, essentially, for the daily work with his horses.
His Partner Sandra Strecht, who runs the daily work with the guests and has all the plans and ideas about the packages and holidays on the farm.
And last but not least Pedro Teixeira Farto, the main rider is a true horse lover who likes to learn every day, improve and pass on his knowledge to everyone interested and put’s a smile on everyone’s face!
We talk about their family, the love for the Lusitano's and ofcourse the big event Feira da Golegã. So put you feet up, sit back and enjoy listening to this interview!
