Horseback riding in Argentina at the Estancia los Potreros

Estancia Los Potreros

Ride Overview

Estancia Los Potreros is an ideal location for a horseback riding trip in Argentina. It is a 6,000 acre working cattle ranch and has remained in the same Anglo-Argentine family for four generations. The Estancia is secluded on top of the Sierra Chicas at an altitude of 3,000 feet and located between the pampas and the Andes in the heart of the Cordoba region. Known for its breathtaking views and healthy climate, the higher lands of the Cordoba Hills are covered in long straw like grass called ‘paja brava’. At lower altitudes one encounters a large number of tree species with much bird and wildlife seen from your saddle. From early spring to autumn a mosaic of wildflowers are there to be admired.

Accommodations & Food

The Estancia has a traditional Cordoba farmhouse and all seven bedrooms with private bathrooms are authentically decorated giving the place a special atmosphere. The house surrounds a large grass patio where guests can admire the beautiful gardens and hills beyond. Separate from the house, the swimming pool commands excellent views of the surroundings and the activities on the farm. The excellent cook makes the most delectable dishes, usually with produce from the farm.
