Portugal’s National Horse Fair

Portugal’s National Horse Fair

  • Portugal

Duration: 8 Days

Celebrate the Lusitano Horse culture, in a unique event, full of equestrian exhibitions, sports and shows.

Portugal is known for its horse culture and mainly for the Lusitano horse breed, that is the oldest saddle horse in the world. The Nacional Horse Fair is the epicentre and the celebration of this amazing culture, where the best horses of the country come together for display, competition, demonstration and shows.

This fair started in 1571, when the horses were an important tool of work and defence, and in the Golegã region where one can still find some of the most important Portuguese breeders. For that reason, the King at that time decreed that at the 11th of November, the St. Martin’s day, protector of the horses and horsemen, Golegã would have it’s fair. The town of Golegã is now the horse capital of Portugal and during this week it transforms itself in the national venue of this important European event.
