  • From 12-15 October 2024, the Lusitano Studbook and the APCRS (Portuguese Sport Horse and Luso-Warmblood) welcome the WBFSH and its members to Portugal for the annual meetings. With the 30th Anniversary of the WBFSH being celebrated this year, it promises to be a memorable event!

    Lisbon & Cascais

    Lisbon is the vibrant capital city of Portugal, located on the western coast of Europe, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. It is known for its charming old neighbourhoods, colourful architecture, old-fashioned trams, delicious food, and rich history. 

    Half an hour west of Lisbon lies the coastal town of Cascais, known for its sandy beaches and busy marina. The old town is home to the medieval Nossa Senhora da Luz Fort and the Citadel Palace, a former royal retreat. Our annual meetings take place here, and the area has much to offer, for a few extra days of exploring the sights.


    The Program

    The annual meetings kick off with a welcome reception Hotel Miragem Cascais, on the evening of Saturday 12th October 2024.

    The coming days will be filled with seminars and presentations covering a wide range of topics, such as horse welfare, modern reproductive techniques, sustainability and social license to operate.

    A round table discussion will also focus on the challenges we face for the SLO in horse breeding. We have an exciting panel of experts, that are leaders in their respective fields of the industry.

    And of course, there will be opportunities to network during the various cultural activities, such as a visit to the Carriages Museum and the Portuguese Equestrian Riding School, as well as the Queluz Palace and the picturesque Sintra. 


    Our partner hotel is the Hotel Cascais Miragem. This beautiful hotel is located at the beach in Cascais. Rooms can be booked at a special rate until 31st August 2024.
