Patagonia’s rugged, unpopulated expanse is the sort of landscape that makes everyone want to leap onto a horse and gallop into the distance, cowboy hat round the neck and hair flying.

Life on an estancia in this remote part of the world is all about adventure and the great outdoors. Whether on a short and sedate novice ride, a fast and furious cattle herding exercise, or one of the longer itineraries, riding between ranches and even over the Andes into Chile is an experience not to be forgotten.

You will ride through barren rolling hills and along the narrow rocky gorges of the Andean streams; to the tops of the hills where the Andes rise up behind you and the vastness of Patagonia stretches out before you. Gallop across water meadows and watch condors and eagles wheeling overhead.
