The participants in the Tour events may have come to the Algarve for the horses, but many return here subsequently for other reasons. Some have fallen in love with the beauty of the Algarve Beaches, the great weather and fabulous food and are looking to buy property here. Others love the proximity of world class Golf courses and enjoy a round or two while the rest of the family is at the riding center. All love the hospitable, friendly and relaxed atmosphere that they find both within the Tour grounds, and outside of its confines.
