  • Description


    We are a family dedicated to breeding Akhal Teke horses. We are 20 minutes from the city of Córdoba-Argentina, where we have a country house of 15 hectares, where we develop this activity.
    The Akhal Teke is one of the oldest horses in the world, it was domesticated by the Scythians several centuries before Christ, initially it was a war horse and is currently adapted to different sports. This horse is also known as a celestial horse or golden horse and is recognized as one of the most beautiful breeds in the world, due to the shine of its coat. Today it is believed that there are 7,000 specimens in the entire world.
    In the stud farm we carry out all the tasks inherent in the care and breeding of heavenly horses. The daily tasks consist of feeding, caring, exercising and cleaning the specimens. Among the general tasks, we clean the stalls, stables, cut the grass, sow pastures and harvest, paint or assemble fixed and electric corrals. We have a clay track to train the horses and ride to relax. The farm also has a reproduction center, where inseminations, ultrasounds and semen collection are carried out depending on the season.
    We break in our own horses and take care of trimming their hooves. Currently four people work here.
    We work with great respect for nature and animals. In the daily life of the stud, there is a lot of work dedicated to the horses, their well-being, care and feeding. We get up early to work and we usually go to bed early to rest as well.
    We are calm people who enjoy living with these wonderful horses and nature. During the weekends, family members generally come to share a barbecue, but in general we do not receive visitors.
    The farm is located 10 minutes from the most important equestrian club in the city where equestrian events are held that you can attend on weekends. We are also close to the tourist area of the mountains of Córdoba, which can be accessed by public transport to spend a weekend, these tourist villages have many accommodations of all levels. There are very picturesque cities such as Villa General Belgrano, La Cumbrecita, Villa Verna, Los Cocos, La Falda, Mina Clavero, Nono, which are located a few hours away.
    We are also located 15 minutes from the Córdoba international airport, so getting here is easy, as well as if you want to take a getaway to the tourist places in Argentina.
