ALBUFEIRA PAYS TRIBUTE TO THE LUSITANO HORSE WITH THE “GALA EQUESTRE ALGARVE – ALBUFEIRA 2023

On the outdoor market site near the marina. Tonight at 2130hrs. also on 7th and 21st September, same time. Admission free.

Translated from the local council website :-

Experts in equestrian art say that the Lusitano horse is the oldest saddle horse in the world. Authentically Portuguese, the Lusitano horse established a relationship with humans approximately five thousand years ago, with its ancestors being common to the Sorraia and Arabian breeds.

Albufeira intends to honour this “partner” of the Portuguese, as well as to praise the relationship that is established, in an elegant and artistic way, between human beings and animals. To this end, the Municipality will hold the first edition of the Gala Equestre Algarve 2023 at the Albufeira Marina. The following performances are scheduled for August 24th and September 7th and 21st.

José Carlos Rolo, president of the municipality, underlines that “this is an initiative that promotes equestrian culture, functioning, in the same way, as a promoter of Albufeira as a tourist destination that offers diversified activities and thinking of all audiences, at a time of the year in which the municipality is full of tourists from all over the world”.

In each of the five shows there will be the presentation of classical riding exercises, choreographies performed by high school riders and horses exclusively from the Algarve, accompanied by music, as if it were a ballet. The knights wear full dress and Portuguese saddles. Likewise, the participating artists, musicians and dancers are all from the Algarve region.
