Desempenho Riding School

What should I bring?

The Desempenho Farm is located in a rural area and you will be in contact with nature at all times. In general, the climate is mild, but from November to March there is more rain and higher temperatures. From April to October there can be cooler nights and less rain.

We provide lining sheets.

All clothing, bedding and personal items, including boots and helmets, must be marked with the child’s name and the first letter of their surname.

We suggest using a pen suitable for fabric, with ink that won’t wash off. Collaborate to make it easier to return anything that has been forgotten.

Children should take part in packing their luggage so that they know what they are bringing; we ask that they do not bring any valuables or toys; everyone should bring any medication they normally use;

Money exchanged for purchases in the canteen can be brought in a sealed envelope, with the child’s name and the amount, and given to the monitor on arrival;

Helmets are compulsory for all classes and vests for jumping classes, but we have several sizes available to lend to beginners who don’t have one yet.

The registration form for minors must be printed out, signed by the person responsible and handed to the instructor on arrival. This is a condition for taking part in the activities.
