My wife and I visited Buenos Aires as part of my graduate school international trip. After reading several positive reviews online, we decided to book the horseback riding experience with Caballos A La Par.
Our experience began when we were picked up in BA (pickup and return trip are part of the overall fee). We took the roughly one hour ride to the countryside and enjoyed seeing the outskirts of the city. While my wife has some experience horseback riding, I had never sat on a horse, let alone rode one. I must say, I was a little apprehensive. That nervousness immediately disappeared when we met with Miriam and Adrian at their ranch. From the minute we walked in they made us feel like family. We sat down, shared the traditional Mate tea, and got to know each other. We were then paired up with a horse based on our riding experience and personality.
The ride itself was incredible!! We spent 2+ hours riding through pastures and enjoying the beautiful weather. It was perfect mix of learning the proper riding technique from Adrian but he was never overbearing. I went from having never been on a horse to galloping with no hands by the end of the ride. I could not believe it! Adrian also took pictures and video during our ride. At the end of the ride, we were treated to hot chocolate and pastries back at the ranch house.
The experience was well worth every penny. You could really sense how passionate both Miriam and Adrian are about their horses and teaching others this wonderful activity. We felt like we made lifelong friends and we will be visiting again next time we are in BA.
This is a MUST for anyone living or traveling in Buenos Aires!!!!
