Horseback riding trips in Córdoba, Argentina If you are looking for the best way to acknowledge the nature of the hills of Córdoba, share a typical meal with a gaucho, and discover a new way to relate to horses, this is the perfect trip for you. The idea of the trip is to enjoy a full day of horseback riding with a specialized guide. The day starts at 9:00 am and ends at 18:00 approximately. The guide himself will pick you up with his car wherever you are staying in Córdoba center, will drive you to the ranch "Estancia El Rosal" where the horses live, and later he will bring you back home. The day is divided in two parts so you can enjoy every minute without getting tired. At morning when you get to the ranch, the guide will lead you to know the place. It will take a while to get the horses ready because they live free at the mountains. When everything is ready you will ride for about two hours on the well-trained horses using our particular way of riding: gaucho riding! Previous experience it is not needed, so don't worry about your fears, we will be taking care of you all the time and the horses are kind and easy. If you are an experienced rider, you will learn quickly our way to manage horses, and you will be free to try some running when the guide allows you. through the surroundding hills of the ranch (the amazing views are included). After that you will have a quantifull lunch (asado: our type of barbeque from argentina) with the best argentinian meat. Also there is a vegetarian menu available. When you are done with the food, you will rest a little (as much as you want) . After thet you will get on the horses again to ride through a different path than the first one. We recommend to bring: A camera, for the outstanding views and beautiful horses, long trousers, sunscreen, swimming suits for the river and hats for the sun
