More about us

In Quinta do Cavalo de Kiron, the approach used is the Kiron Method® – Equine Assisted Interventions, this unique methodology combines the qualities and natural abilities of the horse and the skills and experience of a therapist, coach or facilitator.

We have a variety of programs especially appreciated by people interested in the nobility of the Lusitano horse, heritage of the Portuguese culture and take with enthusiasm the opportunity to grow and be enriched thanks to this beautiful animal. In our approach, there is no need to mount, all work is done on the ground, which allows all the public can benefit from the privilege of growing inwardly, in interaction with Iberian horses (Lusitanos , Garranos and Sorraias) that stand out for millennia for its unique features, among which stand out the nobility, the ability and emotional intelligence.

Our herds living in semi-free environment. We say semi-freedom because it is unfortunately not possible to reproduce in full all the conditions that the horses need to be totally free. But we are very close to this reality. The horses and ponies living in the herd, fundamental part of their survival.
