My husband and I planned our honeymoon to Argentina and I really wanted horse riding to be an experience to share and fond memory for both of us. I have grown up with horses but my husband had only been on a pony once as a child. I was concerned that we would not both be able to ride out together and enjoy it due to our huge difference in ability. I did a little online research and came across Caballos A La Par. I was encouraged by the feedback left by others and the description on their website of the experience they hope to provide for you. I contacted Caballos A La Par and Miriam responded promptly, assuring me that they were able to provide an experience that would be enjoyable for us both. This was fantastic to hear although I didn't know quite how they were going to achieve it! Miriam also confirmed that we would be able to go out independently and would not be part of a group, which I was really excited about. Once we arrived I was immediately impressed and reassured by Adrian and Miriam's approach. The initial tuition before we headed out made it all seem so simple! However, this wasn't just due to Adrian's excellent ability as a horseman himself. The horses are wonderful. Such intelligent, gentle animals. They are so wonderfully trained and cared for that they make it possible for you to achieve so much in so little time. My husband took to Adrian's tuition extremely well and I was genuinely stunned when he was trotting and confidently controlling the pace of a canter in a few hours! I am so grateful for the fantastic video footage of us cantering side by side (a la par!) that Adrian got for us.
You really are able to experience riding across open land and have absolute confidence in your instructor and horse. Unlike so many riding schools, you really feel like you're out with friends on horses you've known for years and the horses all respond independently to your instruction. There is no hint of follow the leader amongst them and in my opinion the riding style is the best of both worlds! A combination of UK and western, so very comfortable and manageable. The whole experience was so perfectly tailored to us and beyond my expectations. I haven't stopped telling family, friends and colleagues about it.
From our collection to our departure we both had the most amazing time, words can not even describe the wonderful experience we both had. Adrian and Miriam are very warm, hospitable people and the location is fabulous. We absolutely loved every moment and I can't recommend it highly enough.
