  • Descripción


    We are a professional thoroughbred stud farm in western Argentina, in a peaceful valley irrigated by melting waters from The Andes mountains range. The farm is located in San Juan province, 20 km south of the capital city.

    The stud facilities are stunning as well as the view of the grassing mares in the alfalfa paddocks at the feet of the mountains. We have lots of horses that are currently in training in a vareity of different disciplines such as Show jumping and dressage as well as a few of them being used as school horses in lessons. Besides, the farm boards and trains horses for other owners. Help is needed in the garden/ farm,taking care of our horses and in maintaining the place.

    The farm is owned and run by a couple with four children in their teens. They live in the city but have the working offices and a weekend house there so they are usually around. There are also two workers who live in the farm and are always ready for whatever you might need.

    This a family owned and run operation where you will be treated as family

    San Juan is a western province in Argentina and the Villa Aberastain, located only two kilometers from the farm, is the head city of the department Pocito, within the so-called Valley of the Tulum, the main agricultural oasis of the province. Vineyards, olive groves and vegetable fields are the main crops around. Only twenty kilometers away you will find the greater San Juan, a modern city with almost half a million inhabitants. The bus stop to San Juan city is walking distance (30 minutes) from the farm. It is therefore very useful if workers buy a sube card before coming this way they will be able to take the bus into the city. We have bycicles in our farm in case you want to go to the head city of the department.
