Our group of 13 took part in a 2 day trip out into the hills. Although I think that they don't normally run it during the winter period, Ellen & Harry were happy to move things around to offer an adventure that worked for us. Everything was really smooth from the start; Tito the driver picked us up from downtown Santiago to take us out to the ranch with no problems. After a delicious welcome lunch we saddled up (complete with hats and ponchos) and headed into the hills on the horses. The animals are all great, very sure-footed and easy to control, even for complete novices. A fantastic dinner, home-made pevre and pisco sours, and the BBQ was genuinely some of the best food that we'd had during our 3 weeks in Chile. Rigo, Victor and the rest of the arrerios are all excellent with the horses and you feel like you're in safe hands throughout - they even tolerated our (fairly dubious) fireside singing with a smile! A great bunch of guys and very professional. If you're after something like an authentic Chilean horse-riding experience, this will definitely not disappoint. I'd recommend this to anyone who'd like a bit of adventure or just to escape from the bustle of Santiago for a day.
Great stuff and many thanks again to Ellen & Harry for making this such a special trip!
