What you'll do

We propose a full inmmersion day into the world of Marchadores del Uruguay. Discover and experience how herd life and the interaction among its members can help us understand our own behavior and the way we interact in society. The experience begins with an introduction to the equine world and its relationship with humans since ancient times. To understand through experience, we "merge" into a herd of mares and foals. To connect and "communicate" with the herd we put into practice basic concepts of mindfullness and "zero state". We also come in close contact with "Atrevido" (the Stallion) and the "Three Musketeers" (3 special brothers of the herd) decoding their nonverbal language. We seek to build in this way bridges with them from a point of love and respect enhancing that intangible energy that make horses such special beings. We offer the opportunity to ride a Marchador in a landscape of plain nature. Marchadores are unique horses of Brazilian origin with a smooth gait (marcha batida), docility and outstanding intelligence.
