As Guest Instructor at Quinta do Archino on many Courses over the past 3 years, I support D. Francisco Braganca and his wife at this family-run Centre in all they are trying to achieve.

The horses are all very fine and sensitive and I think D. Francisco has a very good eye for correcting the rider’s seat, aids and particularly the fine use of the rein. He is a very good linguist and a very enthusiastic teacher for his students’ progress.

If every dressage rider went to Quinta do Archino, I believe we would see a great improvement in general understanding and sensitivity. This School is not only appropriate for students, but for teachers of riding too.”
