I recently returned from Estancia Los Potreros in Argentina and my heart and head are still in the clouds! I took Hadley's suggestion and am so very impressed with their ranch. The horses are sure-footed in this often rocky expanse, have good manners, soft mouths and are well trained. If asked... it would be impossible for me to choose a favorite mount. Their numerous dogs often joined uns on our treks and provided plenty of love upon our return. The landscape changed dramatically during our rides and flowers were in bloom. The various birds were aplenty, including hummingbirds. The delicious and varied meals were professionally prepared, including fresh bread baked every day. The staff (guides, gauchos, owners Kevin and Lou Beggs) have made every effort to know the guests from other countries. Thank you to you, Equitours and the Fox family for helping me plan this amazing adventure!

Travelling with Equitours

Equitours has the finest collection of riding vacations worldwide. You select from only top quality destinations. We work to provide you with the perfect riding vacation, not just a ride that we can sell you, and will be there for you from the planning stage until you return from the ride. Equitours is more than a booking agent. We love, live, and breathe horses and travel. Your vacation is our passion.
Equitours maintains the highest standards for our rides and offers you only the cream of riding adventures in each category. We give unbiased assessments of the pros and cons of each ride and aim to find the most appropriate for your tastes, ability and pocket book. Some of the criteria we consider in choosing rides are the quality and care of the horses, the condition of the tack, the attractiveness of the countryside, the skill and friendliness of the guides, historical and cultural interest, food and drink and comfort of the accommodations.
One of our great strengths is that we are not just tour operators or travel agents.  We share your love of horses!  We run our own ranch in Wyoming, the Bitterroot Ranch, with around 170 horses (many of which we have raised and trained) where we personally take guests on rides every day. We also often accompany our guests on overseas riding tours which keep us in close personal touch with what riders are seeking in an equestrian vacation. You have many years of riding and international travel experience at your disposal by choosing Equitours as your host on your international riding vacation.
