This is a flexible program centered around horse riding. You will be met on arrival and driven to the beautiful Estancia Los Potreros. During your 7-night stay you may relax and soak up life on the estancia, or take full advantage of the superb riding, walking and the outdoor life. On the final day you will be transferred to the airport in time for your departing flight.
Riding is usually centered on estancia life with a huge variety of rides around the estancia with occasional overnight excursions. The staff offer regular round pen demonstrations, lassoing, gaucho games and Paso demonstrations with the estancia's impressive stallion. Helping the gauchos in their daily work is a truly memorable experience and brings with it the very best traditions of Argentina.
To ‘ride like an Argentine’ probably refers to stylish polo players and the gaucho is at the root of this tradition. The estancia boasts a polo field and riders are welcome to ‘stick and ball’ with informal instruction from the owners. Polo is more for the keen novice than the high goal player, though by the end of your stay you may enjoy a chukka or two.
There are plenty of other activities, from picnics and wine tasting, to swimming, lassoing, bird watching and stargazing.
