Horse riding

Explore the dramatic scenery of Latin American mountains, forests and plains on horseback.

The peaks and plains of Latin America offer fantastic horse riding opportunities for riders of all levels. Gallop across the grasslands of Patagonia,  canter through the highland prairies of the Andes of Ecuador and Peru, explore the rainforest on horse-back in Central America, learn to ride or improve your skills on a ranch in Brazil or Argentina. Ride western or English style, on a criollo pony or a thoroughbred: there’s plenty of choice, guided by expert Latin American riders.
