I actually haven't ride a horse since I was a child (and then only for a couple of times), so for me I didn't now what to expect when I first came to Caballos de Luz. But, hey, this place is incredible!
Any nature lover must go here! Uruguay is more than beaches, at Caballos de Luz you live in the countryside with beautiful surrondings; hills, steeps, rivers. Voltures, colibris are living here side to side with you. Between the horse trips you just relax in the hammock or swim in the river (if you here in summer) or do some trekking.
The accommodation is simple, you live in beautiful guest houses (they have only three) were you also eat your breakfast, home baked bread with marmelade, and also eggs and tea. If you want anything more you just ask and Lucie fix it for you! (Her husband Santiago who also is one of the owners wasn't there during my visist). The rest of the meals I ate with Lucie, but if you want to eat by yourself you she fix that for you. She cooks incredible vegetarian food, which for me was the best tasting food during my so far six week-long visit in South America! And I'm not even a vegetarian.
In short, the horse trips were great. We rode in western style, the horses where very calm. I was only here for the weekend but if you here for longer you can do horse trekking and ride for days. That seems awesome! They live in a community were you can meet other people, and get to know a different life style.
This place is a dream! Lucie is the best and anyone who will "get away from it all" must go here, even if you have experience of horses or not. After this trip, I can finally understand why people love horses so much!
