Algarve Portugal - ABRS Conference Break 15th-19th October 2018

The Algarve in the south of Portugal is well known as a prime destination for holidays: golf, golden beaches, lovely climate and friendly people... and now on this trip a chance to meet some of the equestrian professionals, visit a few horses, open a bottle of wine (or two), soak up the sun....  Would you like to join us?

ABRS member Bev Gibbons has lived in the Algarve since 1972 and has always been involved in tourism and horses, starting the Pinetrees Riding Centre in 1985. A programme has been devised to give you not only a few days holiday but also some interesting demos and you can put it all down to expenses!
