Let us introduce you to Alter VET Agricultural School, from Portugal. Located near the town of Alter do Chão, in beautiful Alentejo region, this school has a long relationship with agriculture, particularly with horse management.

Last month, they held the “IV. Agricultural Fair of EPDRAC”, carried out in partnership with Alter do Chão Town Council and the famous Alter Stud farm. As always, this achievement was only possible thanks to the commitment and work of teachers and students. During the fair, several activities took place, like horse riding competitions and beautiful horse riding presentations.

One of the highlights was the presentation of the young mares (“poldras“) in the annual auction of Alter Stud Farm. These “poldras” were tamed and presented by the teachers and students of Alter Agricultural School.

So, everybody was involved in a way in this great responsibility and, as usual, everyone responded positively to the challenge 🙂 !
