Edited: oops, sorry. I reread your post and see you are talking about from Porto.
-------
On the Frances:
The most commonly known opportunity is a horse ride up the hill to O'Cebreiro. I forget the village it starts from, but it's just a couple of hours ride. The farm advertises right on the camino and the trail goes past the horse barn.

There is a farm somewhere around Logroño that has rented out rides for pilgrims. Not cheap, as they have to trailer the horses back home after the one day, but the people I met who did this were pretty happy with the experience. They organized this on the camino, likely by asking around at albergues and maybe at tourist offices in larger towns.
-----

The principle should apply though. Check with tourist offices along the way.

Good luck.

Check out the Portugese camino via horseback as cited in this web.

This is a fine French account of one rider and his horse riding towards Santiago. --
