A horseback trail ride in Brazil in breathtaking landscapes, between wild mountain peaks and canyons with many waterfalls for refreshing swimmings during the rides.
A tribute to the greatness of the gaucho's soul and his love of the horse. Don't conceive of a gaucho without his horse. "It is the horse that leads the way, and with a horse you blend into the" Rio Grande do Sul ". It is around the fire that the gaucho welcomes visitors with a chimarrão (a typical hot drink made from erva-mate).
