One of Argentina’s most iconic inhabitants is the rugged Gaucho – the cowboy.
Life and the weather can be harsh in the scarcely populated wilderness that covers much of the centre and south of the country, and the job of herding cattle and sheep and of maintaining the farm land could only fall to a horseman of the utmost skill and resilience.
Magnificent horsemanship is an aspect of estancia life that has been put to good use for visitors, and allows amazing opportunities to live that childhood cowboy dream. You could have a short trot around an estancia (in a horse-drawn carriage if you don’t fancy ridingyourself), learn to play a game of polo, or take a horseback trek of many days out into the countryside.
