Full description
If you’re looking to get to know the hills of Córdoba, share a typical meal with a gaucho, and discover a new way to relate to horses, this is the perfect trip for you. Enjoy a full day of horseback riding with a specialized guide and learn to ride a different way.   The day starts at 9:00 AM with pickup from central Córdoba. Drive to the ranch “Estancia el Rosal” to meet the horses. Your day will be divided into 2 parts, so you can enjoy every minute without getting tired. In the morning, after you arrive at the ranch, your guide will give you a tour of the place. Then, ride for about 2 hours on well-trained horses in the local style: gaucho riding. Previous experience is not needed, so have no fear: the guide will be taking care of you the whole time and the horses are kind and easy. If you’re an experienced rider, it’ll take you no time to learn the gaucho way to manage horses, and you’ll have some free time to try some running through the hills surrounding the ranch with amazing views.   After this, enjoy a delicious “asado” lunch: some local fare of barbecue with the best Argentinian meat. After lunch, enjoy some free time to rest and relax before getting back on the horse to explore a different trail. Your day ends at approximately 6:00 PM—you won’t want to say goodbye to the ranch or the horses.

We loved it- we had a great adventure and memorable vacation day. An amazing family and BBQ Lunch, an easy pickup and drop off system, a photogenic Ranch and experience, and an ideal way to ride horses through the hills of Argentina. Only caution is that the horseback trail did go through some thick woods and had a couple decent rocky inclines. Horses had no problems and helmets were provided. The trail felt very safe and adventurous. Fun and recommended for anyone!

I had a brilliant day with Salvador & his team. The location was amazing, transport to & from couldn't have been easier. The horses were beautiful, easy to control & well taken care of. Plus the lunch was delicious. It was a exceptionally good value for money in my opinion.

It was a relaxed trip to the Sierras Chicas, we saw and enjoyed the area twice on horseback; in between we got prepared asado and other goodies. The owner of the Estancia showed us his property and gave an entertaining account of his work. The mood was happy, I would be well looked after and entertained.
