Opened in 2009 by husband and wife team – Paulo Nunes & Paula Exposto, Quinta do Riacho is located close to the small, picturesque, hilltop village of Santo da Serra, on the beautiful island of Madeira, Portugal.
Both seasoned equestrians, they chose this idyllic location to realize their dream of opening a small, leisure riding stable that specializes in the care and rehabilitation of distressed animals. So far, they have been succesful in rescuing a number of horses and by giving much love and attention to these animals have helped restore their health and returned their dignity.
Trail-Riding is a pastime that is growing in popularity and is one that just about every able bodied person can enjoy, whether they are a first timer or an experienced rider. We invite both nature and animal lovers to visit our stables, meet and interact with our calm, well schooled horses & ponies and enjoy trail-riding while marvelling at the breathtaking views and natural wonders of Madeira’s Laurissilva Forest* and Levadas.
