There is simply a natural elegance that comes with horseback riding that you just cannot get from any man made vehicle and our tour guides will make sure you savor every moment. The main horse that is ridden is the Criollo Horse , which is native to countries such as Paraguay, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. It is known for being able to endure more than almost any horse known to man, secondly only to that of an Arabian. In fact, because of its very low metabolism, some consider it a better horse than the Arabian when it comes to long-term racing. The Criollo Horse is both very muscular, with a very solid build, long neck, and sturdy legs. It is also very intelligent, which helps greatly with the safety of the rider, as communication is key when putting your trust into that of a living animal of such significant size. A truly magnificent horse, the two of you will connect almost instantly, for a friendship that will last as a memory for a lifetime.
