    Description

    We are a family owned horse business located in the Argentinian Pampas, just 1 hour away from Buenos Aires.
    We take care of other people's horses, give lessons, train horses and go on horseback rides around the rural trails of the area, for this reason we prefer those with previous equine experience to help primarily with horses. We prefer those know riding to train the endurance horses. We love animals so we also have lots of dogs and some hens that give us fresh eggs.
    The place is quiet and full of native fauna, plenty of birds of various types are always hanging out around our pond. We have 3 houses, 2 of them prepared for our guests, with all the necessary things to make you feel at home. Capilla del Señor, the nearest population, is only 4 km away from the farm and it's a lovely colonial town where you can find anything that you need and participate on tradicional activities that are always taking place.
    During the weekend there's always a lot of people coming and going, riding, realaxing and eating a typical asado.
    If you love nature and horses this is definetly the place for you!
