    Description

    Hello, we are Ben and Daniela, a couple of professionals Argentine-Uruguayan. We are developing an environmental and social project that revolves around horses and the nature at Sierras del Eden. A year ago, we began holding gatherings mainly with children and women to explore how horse behaviour and herd life can help us understand our behaviour and the way we interact in society. To understand , we "merge" into a herd of mares and foals. To connect and "communicate" with the herd we put into practice basic concepts of mindfullness and "zero state". We work from a holistic approach that includes preparing and sharing healthy and organic food.

    Hola, somos Ben y Daniela, una pareja de profesionales argentino-uruguaya. Desde Marchadores del Uruguay estamos gestando un proyecto ambiental y social que gira entorno a los caballos y la naturaleza de las Sierras del Eden. Hace una año, comenzamos a celebrar encuentros principlamente con niños y mujeres para explorar cómo el comportamiento del caballo y su vida en manada pueden ayudarnos a comprender nuestro comportamiento y la forma en que nos relacionamos en sociedad. Para conectarnos y “comunicarnos” con la manada exploramos y ponemos en práctica conceptos básico de conciencia plena. Trabajamos desde un enfoque holístico que incluye elaborar y compartir comida saludable y orgánica.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We offer you the opportunity to meet and enjoy life in a landscape of plain nature as well as the possibility of learning from it. You will meet a Marchador. Marchadores are unique horses of Brazilian origin with a smooth gait (marcha batida), docility and outstanding intelligence. We have a herd of almost 30 horses that includes Atrevido (the stallion), mares and foals and horses in "education". With the gatherings held at the Haras you will have the opportunity to meet Uruguayans who seek the teaching and peace of nature and animals. Ben begins to develop his organic garden that also includes vegetables and fruits, fish farming. We are not traditional people from the countryside (Marchadores is not a traditional farm), but we like to respect and learn from the local culture, nature and knowledge that our horses offer us. We really like people who want to learn!

    Te ofrecemos la oportunidad de conocer y disfrutar la vida en naturaleza asi como la posibilidad de aprender de ella. Conoceras un Marchador, un caballo amblador de origen Brasileño con una comodidad increíble, docilidad e inteligencia única en un entorno de sierras único. Tenemos una manada de casi 30 caballos que incluye a Atrevido (el padrillo), yeguas, potrancos y caballos en "educación". Con los encuentros vas a tener la oportunidad de conocer uruguayos y gente de otras nacionalidades que buscan la enseñanza y paz de la naturaleza y animales.
    Ben está comenzando a desarrollar su huerta orgánica que incluye ademas de verduras y frutas, cría de peces. No somos personas tradicionales del campo (aquí no es una estancia antigua), pero nos gusta respetar y aprender de la cultura local, la naturaleza y el conocimento que nos ofrecen nuestros caballos. Realmente nos gusta la gente que quiere aprender!
