Both our daughters ride and were able to explain some of the intricacies. We had a very kind and knowledgeable groom that gave us a tour of the stables and learned about some of the history and naming system. The tour only takes about 15 minutes. We got there at 10:30 so we had time to get coffee and watch training in the outdoor ring. Watching the practice/performances at 11:30 was wonderful.

This was a pleasant surprise-saw much more than I thought we would. Began with a tour of the stables, had time to watch schooling rides and lunging in covered outdoor ring before the 11:30 indoor advanced schooling. The last horses were those working on airs above the ground. We paid for the 12€ tickets - you are belly level with the horses, great if you want straight on pictures. Tip be there at the opening so you can watch more riding. Tickets sold in pink arena building then you go across the street to yellow stables for tour. Great guide, I didn’t catch her name but gave the tour in Portuguese and English.

The EPAE offers quasi-daily morning visits to the regular training, and on the evening of the last Friday in the month a gala performance. The morning training visit starts with a tour of the stables and an explanation of the horses, costumes, equipment and tack, after which you can watch the training in the indoor riding hall. The horses are all Lusitanos from the Alter-Real stud, trained on site by a corps of (male and female) riders. The first part of the training is individual training by riders, and at the end of the training they practice one of the team routines. Everybody and everything is very accessible (we were there in winter, so the group was not big - maybe it's different with a huge group). The EPAE is one of the few Baroque riding schools in Europe (along with Vienna, Saumur, Jerez, or Bückeburg). Like Vienna, the EPAE practices the haute école figures, but additionally shows Rossfechten elements, with one-on-one lance routines and skill-at-arms elements like rings and quintain. The presentation is not as austere as the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, and the horses don't have the bodybuilder physique of the Lipizzaners, they are sleeker. The Picadeiro Real is located in Belém, easily accessible by tram. There is a coffee shop and store on site, you're free to take pictures. Wheelchair accessible.

Visiting and seeing a gala show is a great opportunity to see Lusitanos schooled to a high level, and doing airs above the ground with music and projected visuals. The in-hand tempi changes were a favourite, as was the ridden capriole! While lower key than other equestrian shows, it's a wonderful evening excursion, with the chance to get pasteis de nata afterwards, or to walk down to the Torre de Belem and along the water.

This is the place to visit if you love horses. The school specializes in Lusitano horses. The school is similar to the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. The visit begins promptly at 10.30am with a tour of of the stables and a short history of the school and horses. You are allowed to touch some of the horses. Then there is the show which is really a training session with several horses and riders. Part of the show is a musical ride. The stables are out of town so allow enough time to get there. Public transit is slow so if you want to ensure that you are on time, take a taxi.
