Today my girlfriend and I (with and without any horseriding experience, respectively), enjoyed a great day of horseback riding with Cabalgatas & Gauchas near Salta. We had great fun and we were really surprised to read the negative comments from our fellow travellers from Bristol earlier this year...We were picked up on time, the man that brought us to our destination (which we would respectfully describe as a very charming old ranch (in the family for years) in stead of a little ramshackle) was very friendly and helpful, full of tips about where to eat or go in Salta. Our guide was just great, responsible and funny. During our 2.5 hour horseback riding trip he stopped twice to check the saddles and equipment and he guided also the unexperienced riders on the more difficult (steep and rocky) parts of the track, which is scenic! Before the ride we got a brief written (Spanish and English) instruction. The horses and other animals (dogs, cats, mules) looked fine to us and as far as we could see, the peoples treated all the animals well. Of course you (can) get dirty, scratched and what more so, and it´s true that there are risks involved when you gallop without any experience, but it´s all part of the fun (otherwise might as well watch The Horse Whisperer instead of riding yourself)...The horses we were seemed well trained and responded to most commands they got from the unexperienced riders (like myself)....All in all, fun filled day and an absolute recommendation!
