The Sorraia horse as a Christmas theme

In a joint venture between the Associação do Cavalo Sorraia and the shopping complex in Santarém, children visiting the shopping mall during the festive season, will be able to ride and take photographs with the Sorraia horses or ponies. The funds obtained from this initiative will revert in total towards the Association whose main objective is to preserve the primitive Sorraia breed.

The Natural Reserve for the Sorraia horses, was founded four years ago in Alpiarca, and at the interior of the shopping mall, its representatives will have a stand campaigning for the preservation of this primitive breed. Presently the Association has four stallions, four mares and two foals.

It is estimated that there are only 200 Sorraia horses in the world, of which, 60 are brood mares.
