Horse Riding Holidays in Argentina
Argentina, the world’s eighth largest country, holds such natural wonders as Patagonia, the Andes Mountains and Iguazu Falls. It is also the land of the gaucho, who for centuries have roamed the pampas on horseback, herding cattle and living a nomadic lifestyle.
Fun, fast and exciting, polo is a competitive team sport that combines good horsemanship with tactics and ball skills. Los Potreros polo weeks allow you to try this fabulous game in a truly unique environment, whilst not breaking the bank at the same time. Argentina has the best polo players in the world and so what better place to start? If you have never tried it, we should warn you that polo is highly addictive, and it may be the start of an extremely expensive habit!
Los Potreros is an Argentine, family-owned and run, working estancia whch has been in the same family for generations. One of the few real estancias in Argentina open to all levels of riders, the gauchos at Los Pots are as happy working with beginners as advanced riders. Open ten months of the year, this destination is a perfect introduction to Argentina and gaucho culture. Meals are always hosted by one of the family and they delight in regaling riders with storieswhilst enjoying excellent local produce and top-notch wines. With characteristic Argentine style and warmth guests have a glimpse into estancia life.
Travel back in time and follow the historic San Martin route from Argentina to Chile, camping high up in the mountains among incredible views. A once in a lifetime adventure!
