Bienvenidos!
Welcome!


We invite you to join our amazing gaucho horseride with our experienced South African horseman David along the coast of the Río de la Plata (River Plate) in the charming neighboring city of Colonia del Sacramento (Republic of Uruguay), just one hour by fast ferry from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Here you will find also the UNESCO World Heritage listed "Historical Quarter".
 

Enjoy an approximately 2 - 2½ hour horse ride to the beach through beautiful countryside.

The experienced riders can enjoy a good canter or gallop on the endless beach; and for the lesser experienced a leisurely stroll or trot and a paddle in the water with the horse are options.

EXCITING NEW OPTION FOR BIG MIXED GROUPS OF RIDERS AND NON RIDERS!
You can now all enjoy our FULL SERVICE day together in the countryside and city. The non riders can follow most of the ride by horse drawn cart and we all meet up on the beach (halfway) for the fun and photos; participants can change places for the return ride from the beach if they wish (the ride from the beach is slower and easier) so is fine for non riders too. We all have lunch together in our Gaucho cafe and finally the interesting walking tour of the Historical village. 
This is available for a minimum of 4 riders and 4 non riders (8 total) and a maximum of 6 & 6 (12 total). 

Although the FULL SERVICE can be done on a DAY TRIP, it's also an option to do it over TWO DAYS.

Participants doing FULL SERVICE (Walking Tour + Horseriding + Lunch) are welcome to do the excursion over 2 days to soak up more of the magic of Colonia (recommended). They will do the walking tour on the first day at 4PM and the horseriding and lunch the second day from 9.30AM to 3PM; they must be ready for pickup at their hotel (in Colonia) between 9.15 and 9.30AM for horse riding and lunch day. 


PARTICIPANTS FROM WITHIN URUGUAY will need to be in the center of Colonia by 9.30AM for pickup to start the excursion. There is a 6.50AM "TURIL" bus from Montevideo that arrives at the Colonia terminal at around 9.30 AM; we will pick you up there.

  NEW PROGRAM FOR SEASON 2022  

At the moment this excursion is only available MONDAYS, WEDNESDAYS and FRIDAYS 
(unless they fall on an Argentine public holiday when ferry availability is limited and costly, hence not available).
