Horseback riding in Argentina on the journey from the Estancia los Potreros

Journey from Estancia Los Potreros

Ride Overview

This is an opportunity to experience the best of the country with a riding vacation in Argentina. This riding tour is based out of  Estancia Los Potreros, a secluded working cattle ranch situated on top of the Sierra Chicas at an altitude of 1,000 metres, 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 bare of trees and covered in long straw-like grass called ‘paja brava’. From early spring to autumn the hills are covered with a mosaic of wildflowers with a large number of tree species at lower altitudes. Many bird species and occasional wildlife may be seen from your saddle.

The point of this distance ride is diversity; you will experience the rich natural and human history of the area. Throughout this riding trip the accommodations vary from beautiful estancias and local cottages, to camping in very remote areas.

The pace of riding is dictated by the diverse terrain, though it is usual to ride at a walk to save the horses for long days in the saddle. There is the occasional canter and fast gallop, and at times you will be riding among herds of cattle.
