Activities

“The horse experience”

For adults and children.

700 pesos a day.

First part of the activity: Getting close to the horses.

Connect with horses by being around them, touching them and talking with them. We will walk among the horses in their pastures, free horses in a herd. Call them in to the stables and feed them.

You will then be given a horse for the day to care for (feeding, brushing, bathing), handle (walking, lounging) and saddle (you will learn about tack and its purpose).

Second part of the activity: Riding lessons and horseback ride.

After ground instructions you will learn balance and our riding technique on a horse. First bare back in the training ring and then in the saddle by yourself around the warm up track. Always under the supervision of Samuel and his team.
