I am now qualified by the province of Cordoba as an alternative tourism provider. We own very kind and trained horses, exclusively for these rides.
Our goal is to share the gaucho culture, making our clients feel like one of us.

Super reccomended. I had an amazing day at the finca, the horses are well taken care of and definitely well trained. You can really feel the family atmosphere around. I enjoyed a lot the two rides, the refreshing stop at the river, the chats with Salvador's family and friends and the delicious (and abundant!) asado, probably one of the best meat I had in my time in Argentina. They are also connected to an amazing project to recycle plastic and support people with addictions.

Amazing trip worth doing if you are travelling through Córdoba. Everyone was so knowledgable and so kind in helping all experiences with riding the horses. We had such a long day riding twice for a couple of hours at a time as well as swimming in the nearby river and experiencing Argentinian cuisine. Thank you so much!

We had a brilliant day at the estancia. The horses were very well trained and the asado was delicious! Salvador is an excellent host and a very interesting and kind man. We would certainly recommend this experience to anyone. It is great value too!

Es una experiencia extraordinaria porque el paisaje es hermoso, el contacto con la naturaleza y los animales es muy cálida y sobre todo Salvador y su gente son serviciales, atentos y muy amigables. Me encantó y seguramente la volveré a repetir cuando vuelva

We spent a wonderful day at Estancia el Rosal with Salvadore and his team. It was so nice to leave the city and experience the nature and beauty that the Estancia provides. There is also a clear and scenic river that runs through the property and had a section that is well suited for swimming or just wading. The horses are so well behaved and of mild temperament. We went riding twice during the day and felt that we had amazing and professional guides. The asado lunch was the best that my husband has had in Argentina, many thanks to Augustin whose was the cook. A vegetarian option is also available and equally as good. Many thanks also to Anna from Paris, a volunteer who stayed with us most of the day, such a delightful and interesting companion. It was truly a day to remember, wishing you all much success in the future.

We were picked up as Salvador promised and driven to the ranch. We experienced everything as the write said and more. The horses were gentle and treated well by the host and the two caring guides who went with us on the rides. They made sure we were safe and showed us beautiful areas around the ranch. The food was plentiful and awesome as was the wine. It was a day we will always remember and it was worth every penny and more. If you are thinking of going on a day trip to be with gauchos we highly recommend you book Salvador.
