"The passion for horses has strong roots in the region and has conquered more supporters along the years."
Considering this premise, in 2006, the Municipality of Ponte de Lima started to define the strategy that could lead to profiting out of this important, differentiator and endogenous resource with high wealth creation potential.

The exploitation of the existing potential was achieved through the organization of relevant equestrian events including the Ponte de Lima Horse Fair and the construction of high quality infrastructures which permitted the realization of top class competitions.

In 2007, the strategy took shape with the establishment of conditions for the first edition of the Ponte de Lima Horse Fair.

Since then, the event has been growing in dimension, visibility and results. The expectations were exceeded and at this point, after only nine years from the beginning of this adventure, the demand is at a very high stake.

Most emblematic Sports Events that happened in Ponte de Lima:
  • Horseball Word Championship
  • Women’s Horseball European Championship
