Guided horseback riding and visit to a typical village of the Pampas

This is a countryside day with guided horseback riding in the Pampas whose protagonist are the horses, the plan goes from 2pm to 6pm approximately. It is mandatory to make an advance booking. We meet at 2pm at a country house located in the old town of Uribelarrea. Participants meet each other and make a first contact with the horses, where we present our herd of Argentine horses (criollos), while we are together with them and finish to prepare them.

After this we get ready to ride and go out to explore the rural roads and impassable-by-car tracks because of boulders around Uribelarrea. The landscape is rugged and typical of the Pampas plain, where we can observe the plants and wildlife of Buenos Aires and farms such as cattle ranches, dairies and sown fields. We pass through the historic village of Uribelarrea, and take the countryside by a rural circuit and will be back at the farm. The horseback ride lasts three hours, 17 km away. Upon returning, we’ll unsaddle the horses and have a delicious snack, which consists of tea/maté cocido, maté, water, juices, sodas, home-made pasta, sweet and salty cookies.

  1. Hey, I would like to know where this is located. I live in Buenos aires and am interested to go with some friends, we are about 10. We are all experienced and know how to canter; some know how to galop. thanks!

    1. Dear Sophie,

      Thanks for your enquiry! These guided horse ridings in the town of Uribelarrea are programmed, they took place recently on May 26 and 27. I will get info about the next one in the future, they organize them about a week in advance.

      There is an alternative guided horse riding at a ranch in Zárate which focuses on horses, but they also include everything else a ranch is used to offer, like a traditional barbecue, this is a full day activity. On the other hand, the activity in Uribelarrea is a half day activity and is not focused on food but offers sort of “fast food” or snack like sandwiches at tea time.

      Both activities are located at 1 hour distance from downtown Buenos Aires.

      Best regards!
      Diego
