HORSE RIDING HOLIDAYS

For horse riding no-where stands out as much as Argentina, home of the gaucho, though there are other areas where this can be done.  Whether you want to ride along a beach in Brazil or through some ancient ruins in Chile, there is something for everyone. The areas which we offer horse riding all have impeccable stables and a range of horses to suit each riding ability, whether you are learning to ride or an experienced rider.

For serious riding, Argentina is the place to be.  A country where you can do day rides or 10 day riding adventures over the Andes, where overnight is in tents.  Each experience is with an experience guide and normally a gaucho where they will teach you how to round up cattle and talk through their heritage with you.  A lot of haciendas, posadas, hotels or lodges offer horse riding opportunities from Mexico to Patagonia and we would recommend calling us to talk through any requests you may have.

BEST Horse Riding DESTINATIONS

Horse riding in Chile

Chile’s riding possibilities are probably the most diverse in South America, with the best places in the country being the far south and far north of the country.  In the south the Andes meet the ocean and the clash of the climates has left some spectacular peaks which are ideal for riding around.   In the far north the desert like landscape is home to pre Inca ruins, flat salt lakes and valleys with moon like features.

Horse riding in Ecuador

Ecuador is not a destination that would immediately spring to mind if you thought about riding in South America, but with a wealth of haciendas spread throughout the country, the riding possibilities are limitless.  Each of our selected haciendas offers various forms of riding, whether it is around stunning volcanoes or through some of the smaller colonial towns that characterise this country.

Horse riding in Argentina

The land of the gaucho and all the horse traditions that went with the gaucho way of life, have survived through to today, leaving numerous authentic riding experiences found throughout the country.  In Argentina you can ride almost everywhere.  Nearly every estancia or lodge has horses or stables and each with a variety of horses to suit your riding ability.  From theses estancias you can do half day, full day or up to 10 days of riding through this beautiful country.

NEED TO KNOW

Some places in South America do not provide riding helmets as this has been their traditional way of riding.  We strongly recommend checking with us prior to departure to see if they provide them, alternatively you can take your own.

Latin Odyssey provided us with an outstanding service and the trip they organised for us to Argentina exceeded our high expectations. At all times we felt there focus was on understanding our needs and meeting or exceeding them.
